Hardy Boy Series
The Hardy Boys - They may not meet an adult's definition of great literature but they certainly are iconic and have held up remarkably well for a series started eighty years ago this year. And when they click, they really click. If you have a reluctant reader who gets the Hardy Boy bug, watch out! There are 58 titles in what are regarded as the original series. These were written by a variety of ghost writers working to a closely defined template set by the founder of the Stratemeyer Syndicate, Edward Stratemeyer. If these are not enough, there are a further 131 titles in a subsequent series of Hardy Boys Digest series. See below for the original 58 titles in the sequence that they were published. However, there is absolutely no need to read them in any sort of sequence.
