    I couldn't get past page 10 of this book. It is an aweful example of graphic novels with WAY too much exposition. Clearly, the "author" and "illustrator" don't understand how narrative is explained through the images and the writing is for quick, interesting dialogue. Snooze-ville.

    I like the Hardy Boys GNs way better than the Nancy Drew ones. The Nancy Drew ones are slow.

    Summary: This book is a graphic novel version of the famous and classic Nancy Drew mystery series. In this story, Nancy and the rest of her town, River Heights, is celebrating the creation of the Stratemeyer Foundation established in the 1930s. To celebrate, the entire town is participating in Nostalgia week and living as if they were in the 1930s. When Nancy Drew hears about a 'haunted dollhouse', made in the 1930s, that shows the future, she has no choice but to investigate.

In this story, Nancy and the rest of her town, River Heights, is celebrating the creation of the Stratemeyer Foundation established in the 1930s. To celebrate, the entire town is participating in Nostalgia week and living as if they were in the 1930s. When Nancy Drew hears about a 'haunted dollhouse', made in the 1930s, that shows the future, she has no choice but to investigate. When Nancy does, she sees the dolls in the house move and commit different crimes in the dollhouse that eventually come true in real life. When Nancy's life is threatened, she only gets closer to the answers of what/who is really behind the 'haunted dollhouse' and the robberies. Evaluation: This novel is a fun and unique twist of the classic Nancy Drew books. The novel contains detailed illustrations that help tell the story aside from the dialogue. While this story is slightly on the cheesier side, it's great for kids and contains a lot of comic relief and has an interesting plot. Teaching Idea: This book would be useful in a character traits lesson. The teacher could use this book within a book study and guided reading setting; each student would have their own book to read. Throughout reading, the students could identify each character in the story and write down their key traits. As they read more of the story, they can add more traits that they discover. After reading the novel, the students could write a persuasive essay about their favorite character. The students would need to identify their favorite character's traits and use them as reasons behind why that specific character was the best.

    Interesting little mystery about a haunted dollhouse. Quite fun too, seeing everyone in 1930's style. After having played the game "Secret in the Old Clock", this was a great throwback to that era. Quick, fun, and a new take to everyone's favorite girl detective, this is for the comic book fans who are looking for something short but thrilling. Only gave it four stars because it was too short and I figured it out almost from the get-go who the villain was. I like more of a challenge.

    An exciting mystery that exposes "supernatural phenomena" for what they really are.

    Lots of Easter eggs in this, since it's "1930s" week in Riverdale.

    This Nancy Drew graphic novel was a fun read. I felt that it would speak mostly to a young audience. Although the story was most definitely written for young adults, the content and presentation make it appropriate for older children and pre-teens as well.

Although the story was most definitely written for young adults, the content and presentation make it appropriate for older children and pre-teens as well. The story, being a Nancy Drew story, obviously contains a mystery that must be solved. Interestingly, this story also contains a supernatural element too. Nancy’s town is involved in a “Nostalgia Week”—the residents all dress, talk, and act like there are from the 1930s. When a guest to the town brings a dollhouse to town, a small replica of some of the town’s buildings, the dolls inside seem to be able to reposition themselves in order to predict crimes that are going to happen in the town. While the owner claims that the house is haunted and that there are supernatural forces at play, Nancy is determined to prove that there is a logical explanation. I enjoyed it primarily because it was a simple, fun read. There was not necessarily a lot of depth to the story or the characters. They are all flat characters, and it is evident that this is part of a series. Reading it seemed to be like watching an episode of a sitcom—it’s enjoyable, and that’s about it. This book, however, would greatly appeal to young girls who enjoy graphic novels or series books.

    This is the third book in the Nancy Drew graphic novel series and it's a tribute issue to Nancy Drew of the 1930's. Notice the front cover has an inverted image of the original Nancy Drew silhouette, and the upper part is the modern-day Nancy Drew equipped with today's technology, while the lower figure only has the magnifying glass. The story is about a haunted dollhouse and the writer does an excellent job of working in the titles or parts of the titles of the first sixteen Nancy Drew books.

The story is about a haunted dollhouse and the writer does an excellent job of working in the titles or parts of the titles of the first sixteen Nancy Drew books. The entire city of River Heights is doing a 1930's theme, so Nancy even drives an old roadster. It starts out referring to the Stratemeyer Fooundation, then moves on references to an old clock from an attic (book #1), a hidden staircase, a bungalow, Lilac Inn and so on through references to book #16. Not only do they do the references, they even do so in the order the books were published. This is a really fun tribute to Nancy Drew and something everyone should add to their collections.

    Ok, now THIS is my favorite so far in the Nancy Drew graphic novels. I know I really enjoyed Dress Reversal and thought it was my favorite, but this novel with its added element of nostalgia in honor of celebrating 75 years of Nancy Drew and my love of antiques and things of the past made reading this novel that much more fun!! Just like the other graphic novels Nancy does solve a mystery and there are added elements where Nancy will give insight and information concerning pieces of the case or Ok, now THIS is my favorite so far in the Nancy Drew graphic novels.

This novel was no different. These factoids just interested me more given the factoids reference the 1930's!! From the sayings to the old style of dress and the complete abandonment of the modern technology, this book is perfect for the nostalgic side of me!! After reading this novel I'm really excited to start the actual first 1930's Nancy Drew mystery novel that I just picked up from the library this morning!

    River Heights is celebrating Nostalgia Week, and everyone is acting like it’s the 1930s, including Nancy Drew. Nancy’s newest case begins when the dolls in Emma Blavatsky’s antique dollhouse begin depicting real-life crimes, including her own murder. Will Nancy be able to solve the mystery before it’s too late? Fans of the traditional Nancy Drew series will love this graphic novel. Though Nancy has been given a modern makeover, her tale remains as exciting and suspenseful as ever.

Though Nancy has been given a modern makeover, her tale remains as exciting and suspenseful as ever. Reluctant readers will particularly enjoy the brevity of the text; but, not too worry, Petrucha includes some surprisingly rich vocabulary in his tale. The tale, however, would be ineffective without Murase’s full color, manga inspired illustrations. This tale, in addition to the sneak peek at the next episode, will have readers demanding more.

    This was a huge flop for me. The illustrations are so disappointing. It's as if they didn't get quite finished. They also lack continuity, which I find really frustrating. To me, the story should be told through details in the pictures--you have to do a little detective work of your own. The speech bubbles are for dialogue to punch up the action, and the explanation boxes should be used rarely--certainly not on every page. The story was ok.

It makes me feel like someone is just chugging out books because they think "Oh! I can make money doing this!"

    I read this book because I wanted to see what a graphic novel was like and very curious to read one that was based on the Nancy Drew series. I enjoyed it. This story takes place in the present day but the fun thing was that River Heights ( the setting) is celebrating retro days and everything is themed to the 1930s. The story is original as far as I know and not based on an early original book. The story also refers to previous real Nancy Drew books, which I thought was kind of fun.

    This book was a great surprise to learn about and see that Nancy Drew was carrying on as a graphic novel now. While I wasn't too keen on the art style, I still sucked it up and enjoyed it. The story was good, but Nancy was a bonehead! She was so absent minded and forgetful, this was nothing like the real Nancy Drew in the main series. I was disappointed about that, but it was still a fun read. One other thing I am wondering about is where the heck is Helen Corning?

One other thing I am wondering about is where the heck is Helen Corning? Nancy seems to only be hanging out with Bess and George now. Don't get me wrong, I like Bess and George, but I liked Helen too.

    It’s nostalgia week in River Heights. The residents have given up modern technology and fashion to return to the simple life of the 1930s. Nancy and her friends, Bess and George are going to the antique auction celebrating the Stratemeyer Foundation. Emma Blavatsky donates a dollhouse that’s rumored to be haunted. Not believing it for second, Nancy is determined to solve the mystery behind the secrets of this dollhouse.

    I read this for my graphic novel choice because I loved Nancy Drew growing up and wanted to see how it read as a graphic novel. The same old Nancya nd her pals are fighting mysteries, but it definitely different to have graphics to depict the plotline instead of picturing it in my head. At times, the abstract-ness of the graphic novel made it difficult to follow. Not my favorite Nancy Drew.

    Krysta

    I only liked this because the characters were dressed in 1930s outfits and Nancy had her classic blue roadster. The plot was predictable and I'm starting to wonder how many times Nancy and her friends can come up with excuses for never having phones on them when investigating dangerous cases.

    I've enjoyed the Nancy Drew series for years, but this was by far the worst of any I've ever read. The writing was terrible, and the plot was see through. I'm setting it at a lower standard because its a graphic novel, but it still stunk.

    I did not like this book as much as the original Nancy Drew books. Since it is a graphic novel, it has more dialogue rather than details. I can see why young readers would enjoy graphic novels though.

    I wanted to try something new with Nancy Drew. Thought a graphic novel might be interesting. Ok, but probably written for kids rather than grownups. Some neat facts included that might appeal to the 10-12 year old set.
