My grandson, who's six - loves the mystery stories of the Hardy Boys- we started when he was four with book number 9 - Airport - and he can comprehend the stories and he can figure out before we reach the end of the story what's going to happen. So then I starte collecting the rest of the books. Starting with the 1 thru 6 set. We're on book 16 so we haven't yet reached book 21. My grandson is in the 1st grade and can now read at level 3 in most books. I'm hoping by the time we get to book 21 he can read to me. We'll keep in touch. He plans on having all 66 books, so far we have up to book number 24.

I remember this book from the original story. It had involved a missing heir (Narris Webster) that the Hardy Boys found and thought he was a hobo, but Fenton Hardy recognized him right away. I remembered Narris Webster from reading a Hardy Boys' book, but wasn't sure what book he was in, until I did some research on the internet.
