About Nancy Drew and Carolyn Keene

An introduction to the super sleuth

IN 1930, an American heroine was born — a teenage detective named Nancy Drew. In the nearly seven decades that have since passed, Nancy has matured from sixteen to eighteen years old while solving over 350 mysteries.

For many of her readers, Nancy Drew could achieve it all. She braved white-water rapids in a sinking canoe on one page and whipped up a gourmet meal on the next. Living in River Heights with her lawyer father, Nancy Drew was wealthy yet not afraid to get her hands dirty. She could solve any mystery in 180 pages, with pluck, determination, and sharp wits.
