Editorial Reviews

Review

“Growing up, girl detective Nancy Drew kept us stylishly entertained with her keen mystery solving skills, loyal best friends and classic wardrobe. Now she can help you do the same with the book The Official Nancy Drew Handbook.”—McClatchy-Tribune News Service
 
“Most girls (and quite possibly some boys) who have ever read a Nancy Drew mystery—and Nancy has been solving them for 77 years, so that is a lot of readers—has probably thought at least once: ‘Wouldn’t it be great to be as smart as Nancy?’ Well, yes, it would be. And now there is a book to help girls of all ages (and quite possibly some boys) achieve that goal.”—The Hartford Courant

Read this with your daughter - you will get some laughs with her and also teach some nice lessons about preparedness, quick thinking, don't panic but also get a chance to giggle about the silly things like keeping your hair in place while thwarting a kidnapping. For any girl interested in Nancy Drew this is a super, super addition!

I gave this book to my 12 year old niece and minutes later overheard her and her friends giggling away. If want to know how to apply lipstick while engaging in a high-speed car chase, look stylish while digging up dead bodies, or escape from the bad guys without messing up your hair, you'll love this book.

I love this book. I am eleven and me and my friend are detectives. We have an organization called the S.S.S. We solve mysteries. This book has helped us SO much in our detective studies. So if you want a gift for a young Nancy Drew lover you need to buy this.
