Hardy Boys Resources

I created this blog because I couldn’t find many sources of Hardy Boys book review information online.  However, there are some good sites out there.  Here are some I enjoyed as I created this blog:

Hardy Boys.us

Hardyboysonline.net

Hardy Detective Agency

Hardy Boys Encyclopedia

Hardy Boys Case Files

And the individual articles in Wikipedia are not bad for being reminded of the plot of each book.  But to be honest, I’ve corrected about half of the articles in Wikipedia to be accurate to the books 🙂

  1. One thing that I recall reading in the Hardy Boy books that I thought was a little odd and perpendicular with their honest nature was one time when they had to deliver a cake or something of that nature and along the way they cut some out of the bottom of it and at it where it couldn’t be detected. Does anyone recall which book I am thinking of?

  2. Thanks for all of this. I am a lifelong fan of the series (both versions) as they were some of the first books I ever read and were my go-to throughout my youth. They were a childhood favorite of my grandfather’s, who would read his originals to me when I was very little, and I still have his first edition red cover Tower Treasure that he was given for Christmas in the 1920s. I was fortunate enough to grow up in the 70’s when new books were still being added to the series and it was always a treat to get a new one, and because of buying it new, I have the edition of Sting of the Scorpion that mentions the upcoming mystery Night of the Werewolf at the end. It took me many years to do, but I have since managed to complete a full set of both originals (brown cover 25 chapter apart from Desert Giant) and rewrites (blue cover 20 chapters), and to this day I will occasionally dive back into them for an epic bout of re-reads. I also have a few of the hybrids, the 20 chapter browns and 25 chapter blues, and of course the Detective’s Handbook. A classic part of childhood that truly deserved the affectionate treatment you have given it. Bravo!
