When I first heard of the Hardy Boys Undercover Brothers graphic novels, I was so excited! A lot of Tweens have fathers who have read the Hardy Boys mysteries as kids, and these books make the Hardy Boys fresh for younger readers. Finally some graphic novels that dads and Tweens will want to read together! Not only does this series bring a more modern spin to the mystery-solving duo (by including online auctions and computer hacking, for example), but it also lends itself to kids who find “traditional” novels boring. There is plenty of action and the graphic novel format means lots of bright pictures to keep your attention! If you haven’t read a graphic novel yet, this series is a great way to introduce yourself. Between the simple layout and the exciting storyline, I cannot imagine anyone who wouldn’t like The Ocean of Osyria.
