Its funny how the series is suppose to be in the style of the Nancy Drew Clue Crew and yet they list the age range as 9-12.

I think the covers for this series were posted awhile back.

*SO...No offense to my beloved Hardys, but if they are 7 and 8 I will skip this book/series.

Don't worry they're not 7 and 8, they're 8 and 8. :P

Chapters.ca, Amazon.com and Amazon.ca all have the titles for #'s 3 & 4 in this series, while the 2 Amazon's have the cover art:

Mystery Map (#3) (August 17, 2010)

http://www.amazon.ca/Mystery-Map-Franklin-W-Dixon/dp/1416991654/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1260231569&sr=1-2


Hopping Mad (#4) (September 14, 2010)

http://www.amazon.ca/Hopping-Mad-Franklin-W-Dixon/dp/1416993959/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1260231569&sr=1-1


Personally the cover art is starting to wear thin since these covers remind me of the old E-surance commericals...plus the covers look like they were made out of construction paper.

Also it's pretty odd how the publishing is going to be: Volumes 1 & 2 in April, then #3 won't be out till August, and #4 will be, essentially, nipping #3's heels in September.

Yeah well I still think they would be better off making a Casefiles type series again. What happened to that?? If I was a young tween or teen going to the store nowadays... GASP...I don't think I would have found Hardy Boys thrilling or something to be obsessed about. I go to Borders and they have some bluespines and MAYBE a newer one. I just don't think these new series do the Boys justice. Even some libraries don't carry Casefiles anymore and a LOT of people like them above all else...

Ugh. Maybe I should write to my congressman. lol

Secret Files sound kind of like the Clues Brothers.
