Girl Sleuth: Nancy Drew and the Women Who Created Her
Melanie Rehak (au)
In 1930 a plucky girl detective stepped out of her blue roadster, dressed in a tweed suit, ready to restore a stolen inheritance to its rightful owner. Eight million books later, Nancy Drew has survived the Depression, WW2, & the sixties, & emerged as beloved by girls today as she was by their grandmothers. This book solves a literary mystery: who created Nancy Drew? And how did she go from pulp heroine to American icon? Both Nancy & her “author,” Carolyn Keene, were invented by Edward Stratemeyer, a genius who also created the Bobbsey Twins & the Hardy Boys. But Nancy Drew was brought to life by two women: original author Mildred Wirt Benson, & Harriet Stratemeyer Adams, who ran her father’s company after he died. Illustrations.
