I love Nancy Drew. The books are just classic mysteries. It's so funny to read the language and manners from back then. It's very refreshing!

I read every one of the books in the Nancy Drew series as a kid. Stories are still good reading for preteens.

I was disappointed when I read this book. I found the Hardy Boys series (the originals) and the Tom Swift Jr. Series (the originals) much better.

Written by Mildred Wirt Benson THE SECRET OF THE OLD CLOCK was first published in 1930. It was the first book in the Nancy Drew series.

Nancy's fashion sense includes gloves; and she always seems find time to whip up a credible meal from scratch for friends. This particular story finds Nancy involved in a search for a missing will. She is assisted in this by her father, who is a noted attorney, and by her older friend Helen Corning.As her investigation progresses she not only finds herself at odds with unworthy heirs, but confronting furniture thieves as well.
These 1930 books were much better written than the later ones.
