Hardy Boys Revised Text #13 Mark on the Door and #14 Hidden Harbor
One of the oddities of the original text is that the Hardys' guide is a Yaqui Indian who wants to be called "Yaqui." The revised text corrects that problem by changing that character into a Mexican boy who is named Tico.
I greatly enjoyed the revised text. I probably enjoyed the original text slightly more, but both versions are very good.
This book has some of the same great atmosphere as The Clue of the Screeching Owl, and it was written by the same author.
I really enjoyed the original text, but mainly because I enjoy crazy stories when I find them interesting. This version of the story is actually better than the original text. This is an excellent book and is my favorite revised text story so far.
