The Mystery of Nancy Drew

What's in this issue?

Spic and Span the Decorating article

Since most of us would love an ever-renewing household to return to at the end of a tough day of sleuthing—or simply to never leave in the first place—we thought we'd glean from the etiquette books of Nancy's early days in order to solve the mystery of Hannah Gruen's daytime activities; and the secrets of what Hannah—with or without Nancy's aid—would have done to keep the Drew home ever fresh and ready. Headings include five secrets of Hannah's success.

Clues to Nancy's Cloche the Hearth article

As a nod to Nancy's stylishness, we provide our own adaptation of an American Thread Company instruction pamphlet—in yarn shops during the days of the first Miss Drew—for how to make a cloche hat.

Let's Have a Snack the Kitchen article

Following the spirit of Nancy Drew, we've tried to solve the conundrum of how the snacks frequently mentioned in the stories—especially the ones "quickly put together" by Nancy, Bess and George—can appear to be conjured up as swiftly as spooky sounds in an old mansion, even though the girls are thoroughly exhausted. Recipes include: River Heights Melon Salad, Classic Quick Cakes from 1930, Nancy's Double Chocolate Quick Cake, Twin Elms Snack Cake, Tearoom Blueberry Streusel Cakes, Sylvan Lake Crackers, and Togo Cookies.

Larkspur Lane the Garden article

Knowing a few of the deeper secrets of larkspurs and delphiniums can demystify them for any garden-savvy sleuth. In this installment of The Garden we daringly matched wits—or just up and agreed—with Nancy Drew to solve the mystery surrounding everything about prize-winning delphiniums.

That Looked to Be Very Old the Workshop article

Given the various baffling books-within-her-books to be found in Nancy Drew stories, we felt a puzzling tome of our own would be an appropriate do-it-yourself project. Ashton's hollowed-out book provides inspiration and clues for how to make your own.

Carolyn Keene & Co the Bookshelf article

Nancy Drew was always meant to be solidly in the ranks of the guilty, though innocent, pleasures—read at the point in life when Friday nights and Saturdays mark something akin to eternal freedom and homework has either been dutifully done or furtively deferred. It's the province of perches in tree houses, hushed corners away from siblings, and staying-up late.

The Journey to Deeping Marr the Writer's Garret article

Deep below the walls of Drumlanrig Castle, Seymore is escorted to gondolas manned by gondoliers who take him into the darkness of the Struthruhd and down the crooked stairway of locks that open onto the Sea of the Cave. As the rays of the setting sun fall upon the Hills of Sorrow, he gets his first glimpse of the ruined lytfolc city of Deeping Marr.
