The Nancy Drew Scrapbook by Karen Plunkett-Powell

nancy drew scrapbook“A long-time fan and collector tells you everything you always wanted to know about Nancy past and present.” This was a fun book to flip through. There are lots of pictures, book cover illustrations, and ephemera. The author talks about the writing syndicate that penned the books, as other books about Nancy Drew have done, but also breaks down beloved characters like Hannah Gruen, Ned Nickerson, and even River Heights itself.  The discussion of Nancy’s evolution and changes throughout 60 years is quite intersting. And the chapter on Nancy Drew memorabilia is also fun.
