I saw in the news that Nancy Drew, the original Girl Detective, turned 85 recently and I can’t think of a better way to kick off Children’s Book Week than with a salute to Nancy Drew. I was a hard-core Nancy fan in elementary school and even dabbled in the Dana Girls series which was also credited to the pseudonymous Carolyn Keene. I never missed an episode of the Hardy Boys Nancy Drew mysteries (because back then we couldn’t record our shows. If you missed out you had to wait for a re-run) and I was happy to when my youngest daughter got to meet Nancy Drew through the Emma Roberts movie. I know Nancy Drew has been a huge influence in many lives and has a great behind the scenes story, but I won’t get into that. For this post, I’ll just say Happy Birthday Nancy!
