Hardy Boys Graphic Novel #10 A Hardy’s Day Night ~ My Review

Another exciting Hardy Boys graphic novel! 😎 I’ve read this one, like a number of volumes in the series, several times so far. It has action, brother teamwork, humor and plenty of heartwarming moments. All important qualities to look for. 🙂

I enjoyed the exciting action scene at the beginning of A Hardy’s Day Night – it is cool! 😎 It’s a nominee for Favorite Scene Award for this mystery. 😀

The next scene’s endearing and fun. 😎 Frank being shy about a girl he liked and Joe, being not as shy with the girls, helping him – love that. 😎 Another Favorite Scene Award nominee, without a doubt. 😀 Choosing the winner of this category will be next to impossible! 😎

The next case hits fast and sudden, and you will want to read what happens next all at once, if possible. I don’t think there’s a place in it where you can easily put it down. The Hardys are in trouble when a deadly foe seeks their demise. They need to use their cunning and skills not only to escape that, but also to find and stop their enemy – and to rescue a kidnapped toddler at the same time. They’ve got plenty to keep them busy in this one, as well as in other volumes of the series. 😎

It is difficult to write a spoiler-free review…..but I’m trying, I’m trying!

The brothers get the drop on the bad guys several times much to the pleasure of all of us cheering for them! 🙂 I also love the plans each of the brothers come up with in different deadly situations in the book. 😎 More nominees for Favorite Scene Award!!!!

Unbelievable Scene aka Slap-Your-Forehead-With-The-Palm-Of-Your-Hand Award goes to when the brothers have disarmed a bad dude and Joe takes out the clip then tosses the gun aside. No…..just no. There were other bad dudes, kidnappers yet, who could come along, get it, reload and – you get the picture. Plus, smart detectives (such as Joe and Frank) utilize resources. They could have even used the empty gun for a bluff. They were trying to rescue a kidnapped toddler and with their resourcefulness and intelligence, they wouldn’t have tossed aside the gun like that which could help the bad guys! Frustrating! :/

Thankfully, the writing comes back after that error.

Favorite Samuel Clemens Quote Award from the book (it doesn’t matter it’s the only one, I’ve read this clever quote before): “As Mark Twain might have said, “The reports of our death have been greatly exaggerated.””

The Awwwww aka Heartwarming Award goes to when….hmmm, can’t really explain without spoilers…Let’s just say there are a few scenes that are nominated for the Awwww award. 🙂 One is during the actual rescue of the kidnapped toddler, Mickey. 🙂

The rescues at the finale of the case – excellent. 😎 More nominees! 😀

Beautiful Father and Sons Moment in the book goes to…..Chapter Eight with Hardy and Sons! 🙂

Best Brother Detective Team for this year again goes to…..Joe and Frank Hardy! 😀 😎

Now for the Favorite Scene Award, which was difficult to decide on, because there are a few! The award goes to the scene where they are all alive and well after the culprit(s) have tried and thankfully failed to kill them! 😎

You hopefully can find this volume of the Hardy Boys graphic novels at ebooksellers, used bookstores, and libraries. 🙂
