Cool! I always find these pretty interesting. No entry for the Adventures books though?

Great suggestion, I have added the Adventures series.

I didn't realize that the Adventures series was being called "Casefiles".  But otherwise, even though "Extreme Danger" made the list for the Undercover Brothers, it was the only #1 series book that did not take first place.

I'm sure the Adventures "Casefiles" thing was just a HTML typo- it happens. ;)
But it looks like Extreme Danger is the first one listed for the UB books- perhaps you were thinking of the Nancy Drew & Hardy Boys GD/UB Supermysteries? That one had #5 in the series rather than #1 as the most viewed page.

I've remedied the "casefile/adventure" issue.  Thanks for the heads up.
