Nancy Drew Notebooks

The Nancy Drew Notebooks series ended with volume 69, The Kitten Caper, published in December 2005. A re-launch of the series starting over at volume 1 as "Nancy Drew and the Clue Crew" began in June 2006. Shown above are the various cover styles over time. Originally printed under the Minstrel imprint, it switched part way to the Aladdin imprint. This series is written for younger children, ages 5 to 8. The stories focus on Nancy, Bess, and George in the third grade at age 8. There are black and white illustrations throughout the text. The mysteries are often school related or related to friends of Nancy's at school and involve good lessons for kids. Nancy has a blue notebook in which she keeps track of her mysteries and writes down what she learns. For example, volume 4, The Soccer Shoe Clue, is about someone who is trying to cause trouble for Nancy's third-grade soccer team. At the end of the mystery, she writes in her notebook:

"I found out that it doesn't matter what the score is--there's only one good way to win. Be a real friend to everyone on your team!
Case closed." (pg. 74)
