New Classic Nancy Drew & Hardy Boys Boxed Sets

Go Vintage! Check out the new boxed sets from Grosset & Dunlap for their classic collections! These will have the first 6 books in each. These will be out Sept. 3rd, 2009. They have that classic tweed look. Although the Nancy Drew tweed was blue and the Hardy Boys was a brown color, it looks like they've used a yellowish color for Nancy to go with the yellow spine books and then the blue look for the blue spine Hardys.

Here's descriptions from the publisher:

Nancy Drew Starter Set by Carolyn Keene:

The Nancy Drew Starter Set is the perfect gift for aspiring detectives, or longtime fans of the series! The first six books are packaged together in a collectible box set with an updated design. Titles included are #1 The Secret of the Old Clock, #2 The Hidden Staircase, #3 The Bungalow Mystery, #4 The Mystery at Lilac Inn, #5 The Secret of Shadow Ranch, and #6 The Secret of Red Gate Farm.

The Hardy Boys Starter Set by Franklin W. Dixon:

A special treat for Hardy Boys fans! The first six books in the classic mystery series are packaged together in a collectible box set featuring a newly redesigned slipcover. Titles included are #1 The Tower Treasure, #2 The House on the Cliff, #3 The Secret of the Old Mill, #4 The Missing Chums, #5 Hunting for Hidden Gold, and #6 The Shore Road Mystery.

Can't wait for these to come out. They are so much better than those black/yellow or black/blue sets with the flashlight!

I'm curious - are these tweed covers going to contain the 1930's text, or the updated/condensed flashlight hc text? I assume the latter, but I'd like to know for sure :)

No, the box is just vintage inspired. The books are the current flashlight books. This set replaces the black/yellow flashlight box that has been out.
