Publisher Comments:

Footprints lead to the breakup of a ring smuggling Chinese aliens. Published originally in 1933.

Synopsis:

What grown-up boy doesn't remember Frank and Joe? The first Hardy Boys book was published in 1927, and over the years the series has sold more than 50 million copies. But, along with the Nancy Drew books, in the early 1960's the original Hardy Boys books were rewritten and the original texts disappeared. In 1991, Applewood Books began reissuing the original Hardy Boys books, and since then the facsimile series has grown in popularity.

This season, Applewood is delighted to offer the twelfth book in the series, Footprints Under the Window. In this book, originally published in 1933, the Boys break up a ring smuggling and extorting illegal Chinese aliens.

About the Author

Franklin W. Dixon was the pseudonym devised by Edward Stratemeyer for the author of a series of mystery books he was developing which became the Hardy Boys series. The first book, The Tower Treasure, originally published in 1927, was ghostwritten by Leslie MacFarlane who went on to write 19 more, including #2 through #16. In all, there are 58 titles in the original Hardy Boys Mysteries series published between 1927 and 1979 written by 17 different men and women. Many of the books were later revised, adding another four Hardy Boys Mystery Stories to the total.

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!
