Detective brothers Frank and Joe catch a book crook to save their library in the sixteenth book in the interactive Hardy Boys Clue Book series.

One of Frank and Joe Hardy’s favorite places to hang out is the Bayport Junior Public Library. Having a library just for kids is the best, and they love the real-life bookworm mascots, a whole farm of them! But the town council is facing budget cuts and will vote soon on whether to shut down the BJPL and combine locations with the adult library. Just when the boys’ librarian is starting to sway the council in her favor, a valuable book goes missing from the Rare Reads Room!

The Hardy brothers are determined to find the missing book and save the library. Joe pulls out a rare book of his own—the clue book! There are plenty of suspects, from the councilwoman who’s in favor of folding the junior library to their classmate Jeffrey Le Guin who was temporarily suspended from the library for making too much noise. But the more they investigate, the more they realize that you can’t judge a crook by their cover.

What I liked:
The Hardy Boys series was a classic when I was younger, along with Nancy Drew. If you were into a mystery, spy books were the go-to ones to pick up. Now, a new set of Hardy Boys is geared for an even younger crowd but still with the same fun aspect of solving the mystery alongside the Hardy Boys. This time, a scarce book has gone missing, a favorite library may be shut down, and there is a possible expansion of a golf course if the library is shut down. I appreciate that the Hardy Boys are still being used to impress that children can solve mysteries just as well as adults. They determined the best what, why, when, where, and how. This series does a great job of giving readers a chance to take all the clues presented at the very end of the book and come to their conclusion before the story ends. It helps to promote decision-making and logical thinking as a group or yourself.
Final Verdict:
Can you apply your thinking skills, take the clues, and solve the case before the Hardy Boys do? Hardy Boys is a classic, and I hope to continue seeing more books in this series to encourage a new generation of mystery solvers.
