The Hardy Boys is a series that has spanned generations of readers. Started as a way to idle away time, Edward Stratemeyer came up with a magnificent group of children’s mystery stories. Over the years, hosts of unnamed writers have contributed to this yarn of tales to the delight of millions of mystery lovers. Interestingly, the name Franklin W. Dixon was adopted as the author of these interesting episodes as a large number of writers put pen to the stories. “Leslie McFarlane” wrote many of the beginning “Hardy Boys” mysteries using the Franklin W. Dixon pseudonym. Stratemeyer searched out ghostwriters and found a jewel in “Leslie McFarlane”. The story was distributed, making it widely read. The publishers Simon and Schuster now hold claim on “The Hardy Boys”.

The mystery series holds 58 stories. This includes the “Detective Handbook”. The original writing years were 1927-1979. The characters in the stories could easily be the kids next door or the local villain in any neighborhood. A stranger passing through or an old cavern half the neighborhood was afraid to enter because of an old legend. This story represented the imagination of a nation. Any nation, the stories were about kids and their adventures. This made it universal.

The stories no matter how much they change, still remain family entertainment. They are told, retold, and enjoyed by generations. Many grandfathers and mothers can sit and relate with younger folks when watching the Hardy Boys (series by Franklin W. Dixon). Crooks are still committing crimes and detectives are still after bad guys. Kids have fun trying to outsmart the story and the lesson in history is underlying.

Each writer taking part, has added a touch of his or her own personality. Bringing a little of his or her world to the story. This adds to its reach around the globe. Places traveled and stories told from one generation to the next. Stratemeyer found a way for his idea to move into the future.

Stores are about average everyday kids doing special things. No strange super sonic strength was needed and a person was not required to be overly brainy. No one arrived from a far away planet or leaped a thousand feet into the air. Using plain old-fashioned methods of deduction sufficed in this series. Packed into the “Hardy Boys” series from 1927 to 1972 was a long list of exciting adventures. A few derivatives were mustered, while the original stopped in 2005.
