Hardy Boys #012: Footprints Under the Window by Franklin W. Dixon
Hardy Boys #012: Footprints Under the Window

Great story and characters! Hardy Boys books are typically formulaic with cardboard characters. This particular book is written in an engaging style, with character development, realistic personalities (in lieu of classic analytical Frank and impetuous Joe, gluttonous Chet and irritable Aunt Gertrude) and a plot that twists and turns. By far the best written of the lot. If you, like me, are reading aloud to a 5-year-old, this might even be a surprising and enjoyable journey for YOU!
