Reading contracts all day long. Not bad, but not quite as fun as reading about hobbits.
6.0 / 7.0

The Hardy Boys novels were a staple of my early reading, and I’ll love them forever. Many people were more familiar with the Nancy Drew series, but the Hardy Boys books are equally exciting and enjoyable detective books. Because the books are older, readers may encounter some unfamiliar words, like the yellow “jalopy” stolen by the same man who attempts to rob a ferry boat ticket office. Readers will enjoy the step-by-step problem-solving. The Hardy Boys novels are especially great for introducing young readers to the practice of deductive reasoning–the process of elimination widely popularized by Sherlock Holmes. The books are written by several different authors writing under a shared pen name, and some are certainly better than others. The Tower Treasure is one of the best.
