"Nancy turns seventy-five, and, having sold more than two hundred million books, she has been rewarded with a twenty-first-century makeover . . . The contemporary Nancy is more attuned to emotional issues than the old Nancy, as one can only expect in our therapeutic age."—Meghan O'Rourke, The New Yorker

"The latest incarnation of children's literature's most famous girl detective is this crisp, stylish graphic novel. Although fully updated with new stories; dark, edgy illustrations; and all the latest technological gadgets, the plot is drawn out in classic Carolyn Keene-style—all action at a brisk pace. Nancy tracks down two missing film students while uncovering a businessman's sinister plot to blow up a depleted iron mine. While investigating, she fights off a bear, gets lost in the woods, falls down a mineshaft, and reveals the identity of the Demon of River Heights, all without a scratch or a hair out of place. The sleuth's 21st-century makeover introduces traditional mysteries to the world of juvenile graphic novels, and is most welcome."—Karen T. Bilton, Somerset County Library, Bridgewater, New Jersey, School Library Journal
