I think I have read all the Nancy Drew books more than twice. At one time owned them all, but sent them on the one of my great granddaughters that liked to read.
I don’t know Nany Drew books, I read Cherry Ames and Sue Barton books as a teenager, don’t know any paperdolls of them, but my favorite was Little Women and I have a lovly paperdoll book by Helen Page
Apparently, Edward Stratemeyer, the founder of the Syndicate, hired writer Mildred Wirt, later Mildred Wirt Benson, to write the manuscripts for the Nancy Drew books. Mildred was paid $125 for each book and was required by her contract to give up all rights to the work and to maintain confidentiality.
I absolutely love Nancy Drew books!!! I read them when I was a kid through my college years. I remember asking my younger sisters to borrow them from their school library for me. Once I get the chance and have enough resources, I plan to collect every single one of them. So if you know anyone who wants to sell their Nancy Drew books, just let me know and hopefully, we can work something out.
