Nancy Drew 80th Anniversary Edition Old Clock Book

Penguin publishers which publishes the classic Nancy Drew books still today, is celebrating the 80th anniversary of Nancy Drew with the release of a limited edition The Secret of the Old Clock book. It features a cover with the iconic Nancy Drew silhouette--recognized I'm sure by most any Nancy Drew reader.

As part of this special edition, I was asked to create a bonus page of fun facts about Nancy Drew which is located inside the book before the story begins. I was thrilled at the opportunity and I think the edition turned out nicely.

Some of the fun facts include:

1. Edward Stratemeyer created Nancy Drew.

2. Besides blue, Nancy Drew's car has been yellow, green and even maroon.

3. Since 1930, Nancy Drew has solved over 500 cases! Pretty good for an 80-year-old sleuth.

Read more of the fun facts in this special edition!
