Hardy Boys (Original)*   See series as if on a bookshelf
A series of middle grade novels written to appeal to young boys starring two brothers of a famous detective solving their own mysteries.  They were written by serveral people using the pen name Franklin W Dixon.

This series includes the original 38 books starting with The Tower Treasure (1927) and ending with The Mystery at Devil's Paw (1959) and only includes the original versions before they were revised starting in 1959.

For the books in this series I've added the true author to the list (even if this is questionable) along with the psuedonym Franklin W Dixon that is credited on each book.  I have also decided to duplicate the titles for this series and the revised series since the works in this series are sometimes completely different.

1) The Tower Treasure
2) The House on the Cliff
3) The Secret of the Old Mill
4) The Missing Chums
5) Hunting for Hidden Gold
6) The Shore Road Mystery
7) The Secret of the Caves
8) The Mystery of Cabin Island
9) The Great Airport Mystery
10) What Happened at Midnight
11) While the Clock Ticked
12) Footprints Under the Window
13) The Mark on the Door
14) The Hidden Harbor Mystery
15) The Sinister Signpost
16) A Figure in Hiding
17) The Secret Warning
18) The Twisted Claw
19) The Disappearing Floor

Notes:
Edward L Stratemeyer (1862-1930), owner of the Stratemeyer Syndicate, created Joe and Frank Hardy, as well as many other series characters in children's literature.  He hired authors to write stories from his outlines and to agree never to reveal that they, and not the non-existant Mr Dixon, wrote the books.

  • I try to maintain page numbers for audiobooks even though obviously there aren't any. I do this to keep track of pages read and I try to use the Kindle version page numbers for this.
  • Synopses marked with an asterisk (*) were generated by an AI. There aren't a lot since this is an iffy way to do it - AI seems to make stuff up.
  • When specific publication dates are unknown (ie prefixed with a "Cir"), I try to get the publication date that is closest to the specific printing that I can.
  • When listing chapters, I only list chapters relevant to the story. I will usually leave off Author Notes, Indices, Acknowledgements, etc unless they are relevant to the story or the book is non-fiction.
  • Page numbers on this site are for the end of the main story. I normally do not include appendices, extra material, and other miscellaneous stuff at the end of the book in the page count.
