This is definitely a 10-star book but could only give it a 5. Personnally, of all the Hardy Boys' book, I love this book the most. It could be because it takes place around Christmas. What a way to spend Christmas vacation, on an island in a cabin. I pictured the outlay of the cabin and the island as I was reading the book. Mr. Jefferson asks the Hardy boys and Chet and Biff to stay at the cabin while searching for lost medals and Mr. Jefferson's grandson. Of course, there's always trouble in a Hardy Boys' book and Mr. Hanleigh is the cause of the trouble. If you want to make this your favorite book, please read it and re-read it and see if you agree with me. Fantastic book.

This book is outstanding! I can understand why everybody gives it five stars! This book was published in 1929 by Franklin W. Dixon, one of the best in the buisness, in other words one of the most bright and organized book writers I have read books from. Some people think some earlier books, espescially by Franklin W. Dixon, are terrible. I wouldn't think that at all! The Tower Treasure is not quite as good as the other ones, and neither is the last book in the Hardy Boys Mysteries, The Sting of the Scorpion, number/#58. Just because these books are older than the others, doesn't necessarily mean they are 'terrible' books. In fact, some of the older books in the Hardy Boys Series are better than the newer ones. Here is my review for this story in particular:It is very adventurous and this fast-paced, puzzling adventure around Cabin Island, a snowy island has lot's of places to explorer. Mr. Hanleigh, the villain in this story sure most by a slippery operator to get around with criminal work with only one other person. The most exciting part was probably when they heard that moaning sound. I have never understood to this day why Ike and Tad wanted to ram into the Sleuth, the Hardy Boys boat, with the Hawk, Ike and Tad's boat. Maybe just looking for trouble, I guess. I don't understand why people just look for trouble like that, I've never in my entire life have had that emotion. Total score= 91/100!

Of all the Hardy Boys books I've read, I would say that I've enjoyed this one the most. You know how you have just one favorite book about the subjects, this one is it. I use to read the Hardy Boys books back when I was in school. Maybe because it's the setting and the time of year as to why I like this one the most.

Mention reading to my son and its like trying to feed him liver but we were able to find the Read-a-Long unabridged version of this book and it opened a new world of reading! Stopping periodically to make sure he was keeping on track (no beeps to help him cheat) he found himself being emersed in the mystery and he insisted on completing the entire book in one day with only 2 breaks-one for supper, the other more personal-he highly recommends the book and has asked me for more in the series! Each of the first 16 books builds on the one before but if you start in the middle your child will get enough information to know what's happening.

This was the first of the facsimile Hardy Boys books published by Applewood Books that I read, so it probably occupies a 'special' place in my collection. The book exudes so much atmosphere, it made me wish that I had grown up in New England instead of Charleston, SC so I could have had the experience of spending hours on a frozen river during Christmas vacation or exploring a deserted, rocky island complete with a mysterious cabin. I realize that the world of the 1920's was supposedly much 'safer' than it is now, but the Hardy parents are too good to be true! I can't imagine my parents letting me spend that much time away from home without checking in! I was 39 years old when I read this book and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I made me pine for the time when I was 14 and didn't have a care in the world besides keeping my grades up.

It was Adventurous, and Exciting I liked the book alot because the book was very exciting and it was a mystery. In this book there was a good plot it was exciting and fast moving. Mr. Jefferson's Grandson was missing, than also his medals disappeard, and his butler. It went from there that the Hardy's boys Joe and Frank and there friends Biff and Chet help Joe and Frank solve the mystery to find Mr. Jefferson grandson Johnny Jefferson his medals and his butler. Mr. Jefferson let them go to Cabin island that Mr. Jefferson owned, and that led to them finding all the missing stuff like the butler, Medals, and his grandson Johnny Jefferson.

When the Hardy boys get invited to Cabin Island by Mr.Jefferson they are both very excited. But what they do not know is that even though the Hardy boys didn't plan on there being trouble, there is.
