This was the first of the series, as indicated by #1. Of more interest to those of us who are old enough: this is the story that was serialized on the original "Mickey Mouse Club" show in the later 1950's! Great nostalgia!
How can you not love the Hardy Boys?
Anyone from 10 to 14 who likes adventure stories packed with mystery and action will want to read the Hardy Boys stories.
Beautiful Gift Copy!
Starting out with Frank and Joe trying to track down the thief who stole the beloved yellow "hot rod" of their friend Chet Morton, the Hardy brothers find themselves in the midst of their first real mystery to investigate. The brothers discover the disguise the thief must have used. This leads them to seek help from their father, the famous investigator Fenton Hardy. Fenton and the boys suspect that there may be a connection to the recent robbery at the Tower mansion where the only suspect is the father of their friend, Slim. Neither Frank nor Joe believes that Slim's father could have possibly committed the crime and they are committed to clear his name before Slim's family is ruined.
I remember when I was much younger and was the age of the target audience of this novel. I could not get enough of the Hardy Boys and read each of the books several times over. Reading them a decade and a half later, I can still easily understand my obsession with the stories. "The Tower Treasure" is fast paced, interesting, and has a mystery that is begging to be solved (though this is one that can't necessarily be solved by the reader before the brothers solve it). It is fun to read through the Hardy Boys, and this is a good, clean, young adult adventure story (the series is more adventure than young adult).
These young detectives--favorites to generations of young readers--burst into the twenty-first century, chasing a friend's stolen jalopy, uncovering a thief's disguise, digging in the garden of the Tower mansion.
Was is perfect condition and my brother LOVED the book! thanks again :)
The original classic tale read by Bill Irwin, not the 1950's re-write.
I am a big time fan of the Hardy boys series
my son loves the hardy boys. this is an older book in terrific condition.
This ISBN number is not for 2 cassettes. It is a hardcover book.
This book belonged to my sons when they were young, so I have not read it. The book is in fair shape, but has dirt on the edge of the pages. The cover is in fair shape with worn corners. A previous owner's name is on the inside cover page.
