The authors of Nancy Drew, Hardy Boys, Bobbsey Twins, and many other books written for children were actually written by ghost writers for Edward Stratemeyer and his daughters. Read the article here.
When I first found this out, I had to check on my favorite sleuth when I was young, Trixie Belden. I was relieved to find out that at least the 6 books were actually written by Julie Campbell but the remainder of the series was also written by ghost writers under the pseudonym Kathryn Kenny.
I was nominated by Elisa TWS and I’d like to say thank you so much! I hope you understand that I’m unable at this time to follow the rules to accept the award because of time constraints but I do appreciate the nomination!
Thank you to Dont4get2smile2day for the nomination. I appreciate it and hope that my blog makes you smile. When I started this, I didn’t realize how much time I would spend on it but I also didn’t realize how much I would enjoy it!
This competition by Design Observer continues a tradition that dates back to 1922, when American Institute of Graphic Arts, then only six years old, mounted the first “Fifty Books of the Year” exhibition. According to Design Observer, the books this year demonstrate astonishing attention to craft, as well as startling ambitions to disrupt expectations about what constitutes a “traditional” book in the first place.
