Review: The Clue of the Black Keys by Carolyn Keene
The Clue of the Black Keys - Carolyn Keene

Title: The Clue of the Black Keys
Author: Carolyn Keene
Series: Nancy Drew, 28
Format: hardcover
Length: 174 pages
Rating: 3 stars

 

Synopsis: During an archaeological expedition in Mexico, two professors, the senior Dr. Joshua Pitt and young Terry Scott find a clue to buried treasure. The clue was a cipher carved on a stone tablet. Before the older professor had time to translate it, he and the tablet disappeared! Terry tells Nancy of his suspicions of a Mexican couple, posing as scientists, who vanished the same night as Dr. Pitt. Nancy follows a tangled trail of clues that lead to Florida and Mexico and a secret of antiquity that can only be unlocked by three black keys. 

 

Mini-review: So this was one I hadn't read before and it's always nice to read Nancy Drew books that I've never read. As a kid I reread the same ones over and over again, but a couple of years ago my mom and her friend found a box of all the classics from Secret of the Old Clock to the Thirteenth Pearl, so I went through them and took all the ones I hadn't read and only now am I getting to them. 

Wish the gang had been in it more, and I really, really, really wish that George would stop saying "Hypers!"

The Clue of the Black Keys - Carolyn Keene I remember the first time I read Nancy Drew. It blew my mind that there were girls presented with a brain. Most of the stuff I'd read up to that time, was that girls were sugar and spice - fluffy. No brains. To also learn about George who is a tomboy was a nice validation. Carolyn Keene wrote just for me! That is how I felt. When I did more research, I was shocked to find out, Ms. Keene was actually a man ... writing under Franklin Dixon. I also loved the Hardy Boys. No wonder I loved these series.

Great for girls aged 8 and up.

The Clue of the Black Keys - Carolyn Keene 1988 SummerWow. It's been so long that I can't remember the mnemonic for remembering what the black keys are, or the white keys, either.
