Nancy Drew #128 Royal Tower, #129 Baby-Sitter Burglaries, and #130 Sign of the Falcon
This is one of the books that was made into a Nancy Drew game.
This is an interesting story. I didn't make any notes about it, but I enjoyed the book from beginning to end.
On page 2 with respect to Bess and George, "Nancy felt as if she'd been friends with both of them forever." Yeah, since 1931 when the three girls visited Shadow Ranch.
On page 16, Officer Brody is back to his usual sarcastic self.
This book starts off with Bess baby-sitting a bunch of extremely wild kids in a house. The kids grab cereal and dump it on the carpet, and the girls do nothing except begin picking it up as the kids continue to destroy the house. I cannot stand that scene. I have a memory of not liking it the last time I read the book.
I did not enjoy The Baby-Sitter Burglaries.
On page 56, Nancy finally wonders if Carson has been kidnapped. It took her awhile! I guess she thought he was wandering around the city lost or something. Of course he was abducted!
This book is very suspenseful and very enjoyable. The mystery is great and keeps the reader guessing. All the reader knows is that Carson has been abducted. The culprit is not obvious. This book is very good, and the solution to the mystery is very creative. I loved it!
