A series of museum thefts launch the Hardy Boys on this baffling mystery. Rare collections of ancient pirate treasure are being stolen, so Frank and Joe are asked to stake out the Black Parrot, a suspicious freighter docked in Bayport Harbor. This whirlwind chase after a self-styled pirate king in the Caribbean stronghold of the Empire of the Twisted Claw makes a gripping tale of suspense and high adventure.
I definitely recommend the Hardy Boys novels. This is the original version, and has a 5th-6th grade reading level. The books are part of the AR Book program, so your kids can test on them. They present some challenging older words and ideas, which I enjoyed explaining to my son. The mysteries are appropriate for girls or boys, and are quite intriguing to the end. You will find no inappropriate words or innuendo, which is refreshing in this day of early lost innocence.
His eyes lit up when this Hardy Boys volume set arrived. He has had hours of enjoyment reading these clasics, and I do not have to force him to do summer reading so that he would not be "rusty" when school starts. It is so refresing to have him run up to me as an excited twelve-year old to tell me what he just read. As he finishes the books, he can't wait to tell me the ending and if he thought he had almost fiugured out the clues. I would advise all parents to get the kiddos off the computers and cell phones long enough to enjoy reading the classics that will live on. A good book can take one to all kinds of adventures and places, and the Hardy Boys does just that!!
The publisher has automatically "updated" my original purchased of this Kindle book and others (Hardy Boys volumes 1-4) and replaced it with this awful modern version. I feel that I have been ROBBED of the book that I purchased in 2009. Amazon says they cannot return the book that I purchased as the decision to upgrade came from the publisher. I am disappointed in this version and angry that this update happened without my permission. I advise turning off the automatic update option in your Kindles - maybe you can avoid this happening to you.

I bought these for my son at the recommendation of his grandfather who read the books himself as an unmotivated pre teen. The series inspired him to become an avid reader and productive member of society. With any luck this collection will keep my son away from gangs, drugs, and the poserers of the Celtic dance scene. His grandfather is the crazy doctor guy in Independence Day.
This is a great mystery-action-adventure story where the Hardy Boys stumble upon a ring of opium smugglers importing dope from a Chinese supplier named Li Chang through a hidden port.

Make sure you read the uncensored version from 1927, not the ridiculous and absurd rewrite from 1959. Besides crude censorship, the rewrite is also incoherent since several chapters were ripped out. The '27 version is available used or in the reprint by Applewood Books.

Although McFarlane's original version of the book takes a little less credulity to enjoy, it's still hardly "literature." Nevertheless, the action is just right for 8-10 year olds. This book keeps mine on the edges of their seats. Frankly, more sophisticated action-adventure might be confusing to persons their age.

The book has some stereotypes and language that would be received with offense since the latter half of the 20th century, but it is an honest and benign vignette of American culture in its day. I'm glad some things have changed in the last 90 years, but I don't see any good coming from hiding the past.
I don't consider D.E. Stevenson to be a great writer of literature, but I can honestly say I have thoroughly enjoyed every book of hers that I've ever read. Engaging plots, likable and interesting characters -- plus I love the descriptions of the Scottish countryside and lifestyle. If you are looking for some pleasant hours spent in a kinder, gentler time, give this novel a try.
This book and the series are still incredible all these years later..... I first read them as a nine year old and now I am gifting them to children in my life. Yes, they are old fashioned but they are clean and innocent and I don't have to worry about reading each one again to see if it is appropriate before I give them as a gift. :)
Be warned that this is NOT one of Stevenson's better books. It's a multigenerational family saga spanning about 40 years, from roughly 1903 to the midst of World War 2. Most members of the large Dunne family are kept at a distance from the narrative, and we never get to know them... which can be confusing. Also, this is the rare Stevenson novel that contains a supernatural element... the home of the Dunne family for hundreds of years has evidently developed a soul of its own... what the Romans called a genius loci. The house, Dunnian, insures that the spinster who has protected it for all her long life will be reincarnated under the same name, Celia, and the spinster writes a will that leaves the house free and clear to that Celia when she is finally born! The big problem with the novel, as such, is that the two main characters, an adopted girl named Debbie, and the new Celia, remain almost entirely in the background until nearly the end. The new Celia is pretty much a cipher, while Debbie is so self-effacing that she takes almost no part in anything that happens. I am guessing that Stevenson was trying to do something a bit different, but it really doesn't work.
