I grew up reading the Hardy Boys books. We checked them out of the library, and my brother began collecting them as a result of presents and purchases. The original series was published beginning in 1927 by the Edward Stratemeyer syndicate and eventually consisted of some 58 titles. Some of the earlier ones have been reprinted in their original editions by Applewood Books. The ones I grew up with were revisions made in the 1950s. The original titles available today are all revisions made in the 1980s. New titles have been added to the series in recent years, but our experience is that they are not nearly as good as the original titles (even in revisions) and, in fact, have some undesirable elements. The Mystery of the Chinese Junk, No. 39 in the series, tells how Frank and Joe and some of their friends buy a Hong Kong junk in New York City and become involved in an exciting mystery when they are attacked by strangers. In a previous assessment of the series, I wrote, "They are not great literature, but I was always impressed with how polite Frank and Joe Hardy were, how they solved the mysteries primarily by using their brains rather than brawn (although there was always just enough scuffling to make the stories exciting and adventuresome), how they recognized that getting an education was important, and how they reacted so lovingly with their family." While I would not suggest that boys read only books like this, if your sons (or daughters) like the Hardy Boys they could do a lot worse.

This book is so cool. All the boys go together to buy a boat. Then they find out the boat has a mystery connected to it!
