    This is not the format I read; mine is the original text book and the updated one shown may have a different story. That being said, I haven't read this book since I was a pre-teen. I read it now in preparation for a convention I'm attending. I was pleasantly surprised at how quickly I got into the mystery. Nancy and her friends, Bess and George, accompany Mr. Drew to Boston where a sea captain living on an old clipper ship has been bothered by prowlers. I loved all the old history about the cli [...]

    When I was a kid, I loved Nancy Drew. But it's been so long since I read one that I decided to see what they are really like (rather than go on what I remember them being like). I don't think I ever read this particular mystery before, but I did recognize lots of the details because they are same from book to book.My impression: things happen FAST. Minimal descriptions, lots of lucky guessing on Nancy's part, and lots of stray "clues" that are sometimes really unlikely. I think when I was younge [...]

    I recently reread this book after moving my book collection out of my mother's house. I read it probably many times as a child although I was really a fan of The Boxcar Children. And rereading this it seems to make sense why.This felt much more dated than The Boxcar Children. The attitudes toward women felt more sexist. These were older women than the characters in The Boxcar Children, but the women felt more delicate, even though they were the heroes. They seemed to be very poor role models.And [...]

  • Melanie

    In the book before this one, George suddenly started saying "Hypers!" as an expletive or interjection. If she doesn't stop it, I'm going to quit reading because it is driving me CRAZY.The girls are helping some guy on a ship, and he thinks the ship is haunted, but really it's full of thieves. One thief is pretty much a patsy though. And this one has decent suspense (are police ANYWHERE competent? They let the "dangerous criminal" return to the scene of the crime like 8 times and never catch him, [...]

    The Nancy Drew mystery book series wins again with this great, thrilling mystery story.

  • Bev

    Captain Easterly has made his home on an old clipper ship by the name of the Bonny Scot. He's been renting her, but he'd like to buy her outright and asks Carson Drew to help him find a clear title for the ship so it can be purchased. But a missing title isn't the only trouble the old sea captain has been having--he has been hearing mysterious noises on his boat and he's sure he's got intruders. Mr. Drew asks Nancy to come to the Boston area with him to help clear up the mysteries. But before th [...]

    I found a jigsaw puzzle on clearance at Barnes & Noble that had all the original covers of Nancy Drew books. I of course bought it, and we completed it in 3 days. It got me all excited to re-read these original 56 stories. Such great memories of them!! I am hoping that my library carries most if not all of these books.

  • Ayanami Faerudo

    I am aware that the author, Carolyn Keene, is just a pseudonym for a number of writers who wrote book in the Nancy Drew series. If you read the books from the beginning till the later books (the original one to sixty-four ones), you could discern the level of intricacy of the mysteries that Nancy and the gang encounter as well as how the characters were written.Now, there are basic characteristics that the writers falls on when it comes to Nancy, George and Bess. Nancy is a smart/detective/Mary [...]

  • Madalyn Walker

    This is number 27 in the Nancy Drew series. In this adventure, this is mystery and suspense makes you want to continue reading. Carolyn Keene has out done herself once again. The text is about an eight-teen-year-old detective who will go to any lengths to find to bandit. Many readers would appreciate this book because of the amazing grammer that is found on every page. If I were you I would buy this book.

  • Lucy

    I love reading Nancy Drew occasionally!

  • Nancy Drew Girl

    I just love Nancy Drew books .I have not read a Nancy Drew book that I is not good

  • Greta

    High marks for imagery. There seemed to be something iconic about the wooden lady that brought this one to a higher level.

  • Ashley

    Carson is working to help Captain Easterly get a clear title to the ship he's renting, the Bonny Scot. Nancy travels to Boston to help him out, because some assholes are breaking into the ship, busting shit up, and then flitting off like ghosts. So, dicks, in other words.Nancy accompanies Ned to a dance at Emerson and they go on a moonlight stroll! And they are so super cute together. I love y'all. (Ned also takes a punch when Nancy sends him into a restaurant to trail a suspect. Poor Ned.)Relat [...]

  • Jessica

    Not my favorite. Nancy and the gang just made the same mistakes over and over in this one. If you know a person(s) is sneaking aboard the ship all the time, the first thing you should do is find out how said person(s) are doing it. But noooo. Let’s just putz around leading the bad guys to the treasure on multiple occasions. For the worlds #1 girl detective she sure wasn’t her quick witted self in this one. Also real pissed at Ned for his extremely sexist comment about the ladies saying that [...]

  • Faith High School

    Read by: Sydnie Schauer. What I liked about this book was that it was very interesting and suspenseful. I also liked how it ended the way it did. I knew who the bad guy was. What I didn't like about this book, however, was that I wasn't really that interested in the book. It was almost boring to me.

  • Andy

    Another find at #HPB.

  • Mari Brooks

    Nancy Drew is a bad ass lol

    The Secret of the Wooden Lady is a children's story by Carolyn Keene (pseudonym) and the 27th book in the Nancy Drew series.When Carson Drew is asked to find the title papers for a friend's ship, Nancy Drew becomes involved in the case by trying to find out who is "haunting" the ship and the story behind the ship's missing figurehead.I’ve always been a voracious reader. So, as a child, one of my favorite things about summer was the frequent trips to our local library, which was less than a mil [...]

    Nancy Drew would be pretty old now. Like in her 50s or 60s, I'm not so good at maths. I wonder if they ever did any books about her adult life. I wonder if she ever did become a detective?Read this years ago and I liked it more now. It started off slow. I was picking up the paper and actually talking to people instead of reading. But once Nancy got on the boat, the mystery kicked off and it was all go. It's not a perfect book, George is a complete rip off of George from the Famous Five. Nancy al [...]

    Nancy Drew is at it again. This time she is trying to help her dad's friend become the owner of the Bonny Scot the ship he has been renting. But in the begiining there were mysterious calls telling Nancy to stay way from ship.Nancy as usual didn't listen and went to the ship anyway. They couldn't find history on the Bonny Scot so they were having trouble selling the ship. Then Nancy found out there were stowaways on the ship. Then a fire started Nancy still was looking for the real name of the B [...]

    This is a review of the 27th book in the Nancy Drew Mystery series, and refers to the 1967 revised text.Nancy's father is called to try to clear up the ownership of a boat so a Captain Easterly can buy it. It's a very difficult problem, though, and, meanwhile, strange things have been happening on the boat. Someone has been going through the boat, trashing the rooms, looking for something.Nancy works with Bess and George and, for a short time, with Ned and his friends, to try to find out who is [...]

    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. [...]

    Nancy's at it again with another mystery. In this one, she's trying to help a sea captain figure out the mystery of The Bonnie Scot. The captain has been renting, and would like to buy, this ship. But he can't purchase it until the provenance is cleared. Also, someone's been sneaking around on the ship and searching for something, but the captain isn't sure what. Nancy get help from Bess and George as well as Burt, Ned, and Dave in this mystery that takes her to the East Coast and has her intera [...]

  • Luisa

    Nancy Drew always pulls through. This time she found a treasure hidden aboard a ship. The most interesting part of this mystery, to me, was that it was written in a distinctly different style than the other Nancy Drew books I've read--I guess a different ghost writer was working on this one. It always seems so funny to me that she is so good at absolutely everything, but I guess that's part of what makes her a great detective.

  • Sydney

    I've been re-reading the Nancy Drew series in order for the past couple of years, and most of them have seemed a bit odd and more far-fetched than I remembered. This installment was one of my favorites I've read so far - I enjoyed how Nancy got to spend some time on a boat. I loved that there was a convincing red herring, and I especially adored all of the ridiculous names (Red Quint? Grizzle face?!?) hahaOne of my favorites so far - looking forward to the rest in the series!

  • Matthew Bandy

    I just finished reading this to Kate, my 8 year old. It is the 3rd older type book that we have read out loud together. It was a great book and I looked forward to seeing where the story would take us - always a cliffhanger. Kate learned a lot of new words and ideas about the sea and ships from this book - like figurehead, mast, and so on. While we will be reading something else next, I plan on reading more Nancy Drew for our 3 girls in the coming years.

  • Frances Neilson

    This was the first ever Nancy drew book I read; my mum brought it back for me from a second hand bookshop. My copy is a beautifully loved green hardback with only a silhouette of Nancy on the cover. After reading this one, I went on to read every single other ND book and have a bookshelf full of almost all of them. However, The Secret of the Wooden Lady will forever be my favourite.

  • Miri

    Nancy is helping her father on a case of an old clipper ship with a missing title, coming to the aid of an old friend, a sea captain who would like to buy the ship, the case is complicated by vandalism and stowaways hiding on the Bonnie Scot and the legend of the missing figurehead. What mysteries could this old ship hold?

  • Ava Spach

    This book was a very interesting mystery because of the history behind the ship on which Nancy, Bess, George and other people stayed on. This one is more about the mystery, not who caused it, which made it very good. At times it was a little slow, but overall I give it 4 stars! (duh)

  • David Wolowsky

    I stayed the week at Grandmas and found this book which belonged to my Aunt Carol, her daughter. As an eight year old I found it enthralling and proceeded to read Nancy Drew books for the next several years. I think it bothered my dad lol.
