    Overall

    Story

    My five year old son loves these stories, and I enjoy listening to them as well. The cameraderie among the siblings is refreshing and it is nice how resourceful the kids are. Each of the stories has an element of mystery to them, which keeps you interested. (My three year old, however, starts to get antsy with these stories, because they are so lengthy - we have to take Dr. Seuss and Nate the Great breaks for him!)

    Story

    My son started listening to the Nate the Great audiobooks a few months back and quickly became bored with them. He loves that these A to Z Mysteries have a more involved story line and a bit more suited for "big kids". The language is appropriate (don't have to worry about hearing "shut up" or "stupid") and I like that the kids in the story are resourceful. The only complaint I have is that most of the stories I have listened to so far are about finding a thief...would be more interesting if they switched up the mystery a bit, but that's just me.

Dink, Josh, and Ruth Rose are visiting Dink’s Uncle Warren in New York City when several paintings are stolen from his apartment building. Do the kids have enough clues to catch this crafty—and hungry—crook?

  • The Hidden Staircase: Nancy Drew Mystery Stories 2

    "Very old friend remains a Delight !"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    What did you love best about The Hidden Staircase?

    It is one of the first in the famous old series, and yet pretty complex. Not all fluff. Stuff to get into. The "very old friend" - ness of it, is what brings me back.

    I'd run to the library as a girl to get the next book in the series. I had to sit with myself, to work out a reading schedule that prevented me from obsessing on Nancy Drew books.
    I read every one available at the time.

    Then in highschool I re-read the rewritten series, updated it to get rid of stereotypes and racist things. My best friend owned the entire collection, so it was a bit easier. My friends and I made 4 and we'd go on "adventures" inspired by Nancy Drew, in addition to our busy family, school and dating things.

    I still want a blue roadster, and I DID manage to wangle from Dad a cool Hillman Minx in two-tone grey.

    As a Mother of grown children I could recommend it to them and now to grandchildren, and that's part of the magic.


    What other book might you compare The Hidden Staircase to and why?

    "Chimneys" I think in Agatha Christie's collection for Miss Marple....because of the long lost knowledge Idea and the hidden passageways...not the best one but it will do here.


    Which character – as performed by Laura Linney – was your favorite?

    Nancy...I think Laura Linney IS Nancy Drew. And I think she took the job for love of Nancy Drew! Hugs to her for it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I like it when the capture of the "perps" results in benefits to the "good guys" , suffering in some way. At the end, The aunties no longer need to sell the estate, etc...fun...to close with a nice feeling and promise of another mystery to come ...soon.


    Any additional comments?

    Please make the Nancy Drew /Hardy Boys purchases easier for us at Audible - compared to the other books they are a bit costly - when most older children and adults read them by the dozen - rarely one at a time.

    Please Make them available in a group at a special price, and call me - I'll buy them all.

    Almost everybody who has grown up in Chicago knows about the Thorne Rooms. Housed in the Children’s Galleries of the Chicago Art Institute, they are a collection of 68 exquisitely crafted miniature rooms made in the 1930s by Mrs. James Ward Thorne. Each of the 68 rooms is designed in the style of a different historic period, and every detail is perfect, from the knobs on the doors to the candles in the candlesticks. Some might even say, the rooms are magic....
