Anyway, I don't want to give all of them away but here are a few more. Cute little book. I was killing time at Barnes before dinner with some friends and this book caught my eye. I sat and read it in a little over half an hour. It is full of great quotes from the classic Nancy Drew books and nifty little applications to your life from Drew's.
I found its target audience to be a bit split, however, in a negative way. While the book itself was adorable and the idea was great, it was aimed toward young girls. There is, of course, nothing wrong with this so much but the Cute little book. There is, of course, nothing wrong with this so much but the entire first chapter a history of Drew and the times surrounding her creation prepared me for a book that was going to be aimed at the older women who grew up with Nancy Drew. That is very much what it appears to be until you get to the actual "wisdom" part where it is suddenly the kind of things 12 year-olds would read and giggle over at slumber parties.
It's an adorable little book, no doubt, but not entirely relevant to one audience or the other. Feb 28, Sarah rated it liked it. However the rest of the book with "advice" seems a little, well It's rather boring. As an avid Nancy Drew-er I appreciated the quirky quotes from the book along with the classic pictures, however if you are not a Nancy Drew fan, this will be a bore.
I received this book as a gift and I think it was a wonderful p I loved the first chapter of the book, Hidden Secrets: The Evolution of Nancy Drew, which has the historical background of Nancy Drew, Nancy Drew by numbers, and even a cute quiz!
I received this book as a gift and I think it was a wonderful present to receive, it showed my friend truly knew what I liked, however I probably wouldn't have purchased it for myself. If you're a die-hard Nancy Drew fan, then this is a must-have, however if your simply an amateur detective, I'd pass on this one.

Shelves: It is a compilation of facts, quizzes, pictures, and quotes from the Nancy Drew books. I only read a couple of the original Nancy Drew books, but it was still fun to read this compilation.
My favorite part was the comparison between the original books from the s and the revision. I recommend this book for anyone who already loves Nancy Drew or is interested in women's rights. The beginning section talks about Nancy Drew's impact on the Suffragette Movement and being a role model for the equal rights movement.
Jan 15, Sarah Crawford rated it really liked it. The book has nine chapters, each chapter with one or more drawings from the Nancy Drew books and these are really very well done and very colorful and attractive. Each chapter with have a text introduction and a number of quotes from the various Nancy Drew Mystery books centered around the chapter's topic, and also may have modified interior drawings from the books.
There are also a number of quizzes to test the reader's knowledge of Nancy Drew. All of this adds up to a very well-done book. Oct 16, Ruby rated it really liked it. This book brought back a ton of memories! And, I found the real-life comparisons cute and entertaining. I also liked that I learned something.

I haven't seen many high ratings for this book. I've seen quite a few complaints, though. Some readers didn't like the history of Nancy Drew, and some didn't like that it was written a lower "level. If you pick up a book about Nancy Drew, it's probably not going to be targeting adults. I did like reading about the history of the various writers and artists that created Nancy Drew.
I found it interesting Maybe that's just me?

Growing up a Nancy Drew addict, I received this book as a gift, and it's cute, but not enthralling. It's full of old covers and illustrations, which make me want to pull out my old ND's and reread them. They're formulaic, they're predictable, but also comforting, like a bowl of tomato soup on a rainy day. Some of these nuggets of wit and wisdom will make you smile; others will make you cringe at the way the people thought about women and interpersonal relationships, back in the day.
Jul 01, Melanie rated it really liked it Shelves: books-i-own. This book just takes quotes from Nancy Drew books and applies them rather hilariously to real life.
