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. 🙂

The Hardy Boys Papercutz Graphic Novel #8 Board to Death ~ My Review

Cool cover art and exciting mystery for the 8th volume of Papercutz’s Hardy Boys graphic novel series! 😎 I’ve read this a couple of times now and enjoy this great summer (or any time of the year! 😉 ) read each time. The Hardy brothers, action, adventure, humor, danger – yeah, it’s got all that. 😎 A lot to love about the book! 🙂

The cover art is by Daniel Rendon and the rest of the artwork in the graphic novel is drawn by Paulo Henrique. Both the story and the drawings work together to give the reader an exciting mystery! 😎

The book begins with the dangerous finale action of a case, and as I’ve mentioned before that’s something I really like when they have that in this series. For the Hardy Boys graphic novel #8, the brothers are in the process of rescuing a kidnapped girl. It’s great with Joe and Frank dressed as pirates and Joe had a lot of fun with the pirate talk annoying the bad guys! 🙂 Fun! 😀 When bad people get annoyed by good people it’s very cool and very enjoyable to read! 😀 

Awesome brother teamwork which I love to read! 😎 Fun brother banter, too. 😎

Here’s part of the synopsis from Papercutz ~

The brothers Frank and Joe Hardy go undercover at a major skateboarding contest in Venice, California to find out which competitor is trying to kill off the competition—literally?

They risk their lives as they try to keep everyone safe and solve who is behind the problems that could have deadly results. There are suspects to check out and quick before it’s too late. Good investigating and courage by Frank and Joe. 😎 Skateboarding is a cool sport and already dangerous, so when you add the elements of persons up to no good – watch out! 😮

I also really like that Joe pokes fun at the over-the-top attitudes when they put together his persona – Hardcase. 😀 That goes well for his hard head. 😉 😛

Such thrilling action that you can almost see it jumping off the pages as the reader is caught up in the danger. The brothers do a great (and extremely-necessary-with-all-the-danger) job looking out for each other. 😎 When I’m reading, I’m there with them every second.

The finale is pulse-pounding excitement and I LOVE the way the Hardy brothers outsmart their foe (or foes, not saying, so it’s spoiler free.). 😎 Once you’ve read it, you want immediately to go read it again! Cool action! 😎

At the close of the book when the Hardy bros are back home in Bayport, Aunt Trudy even gets a new nickname and that was fun as well as nice of her cool nephews. 🙂

This Hardy Boys graphic novel has definite re-readability! If you haven’t read it yet, hopefully you will get an opportunity to do so. 🙂 You won’t be bored to death. 😉 What? You didn’t think I was going to miss saying that, did you? 😆 It’s available in ebook and used paperback or hardcover. Check online and at libraries as well as used bookstores to find a copy! 🙂 I’ve read some great Hardy Boys graphic novels from Papercutz so far and this is one of them. 🙂 Thank you to all of the nice people @Papercutz! 🙂 A cool book is one that is enjoyed on reading it the first time and every time. 🙂

The Hardy Boys #30 The Wailing Siren Mystery ~ My Review

Hardy Boys fans have a lot to enjoy in The Wailing Siren Mystery, the 30th volume of the main HB series! 😀 Great scenes, intense danger, and thrilling excitement in this. Great family, too. I love that. 🙂 You’ve got all kinds of things happening! An intense storm at the beginning while the Hardy brothers are in their boat, Sleuth. A mysterious siren, money falling from the sky, danger from a potential collision with a yacht, theft, kidnapping – and that’s just in the first half of the book!!!! And you’re there with them every step of the way! 😎 The exciting action is great. The heart-warming brotherly love is great. It’s an excellent read! 🙂

The mysteries in the book all flow well and while a lot goes on, it’s not too much. I love that many Hardy book characters show up in The Wailing Siren Mystery. The whole Hardy family ~ Fenton, Laura, Frank, Joe, and Aunt Gertrude. Joe’s love, Iola, and Frank’s love, Callie. Chet Morton, Biff Hooper, Tony Prito, Officer Con Riley, Fenton’s operative Sam Radley, Chief Ezra Collig, Jack Wayne gets introduced – and kidnapped by the bad guys! And we even have an appearance by Oscar Smuff, who’s a policeman in the mystery and does his job. 😮 I missed Phil Cohen in this one. He must have been on vacation elsewhere. Hope he had fun! 🙂

There are so many parts I could quote and talk about – how do I choose?!?!?! 😀 The clues, investigating, and crime-fighting are very well done. They use their brains and utilize resources including tech and fight when they have to. 😎

Frank is kidnapped and what an intense part of the book that is! Joe is a great brother (so is Frank!) and he knows something isn’t right. He goes to investigate and tries to find his brother. You can’t stop reading! 😮 Great brotherly love. 🙂 😎

As has been mentioned on The Bayport Library page here, the wolves are scary. They can be terrifying in the book because of the realistic writing. 

Okay, so there are number of really intense scenes! Another one is when Joe goes missing and Frank’s really worried. Joe and Chet risk their lives and well-being at a threat to Iola’s life. I don’t think I can tell you more without spoilers! If you’ve read it you know what I’m talking about, and if you haven’t, you will when you read it! 🙂

So many great quotes in The Wailing Siren Mystery. Such as from feisty Aunt Gertrude ~

…Aunt Gertrude said excitedly: “Take your two-way radio and keep in touch. If anybody bothers you, I’ll give him a piece of my mind!”

And she means it, too! 😀 😎

There are a lot of great scenes in this book (I think I’ve already alluded to that 😉 Oh, wait, I think I flat-out said that 😀 ), but I’ll share this one with everyone where a bad guy is trying to scare the Hardy brothers. Yeah, I love that they don’t let the bad guys win or intimidate them. Frank and Joe outwit him. 😀 To set the scene, they are on the Sleuth and the one bad guy pirate has just gotten on the boat and is asking the brothers if they’re going to leave or not like they’d been warned and threatened to ~

He was several inches over six feet and as burly as a bear. menacingly he approached Joe.

   “Are you going to scram?”
 
   “No.”

   The man lunged at Joe, who tried to grapple with him. Frank sprang to his brother’s defense, but before he could clamp a hold on the stranger, the assailant had pitched Joe far over the side of the boat. After a brief struggle Frank followed. The Hardys bobbed to the surface several feet from the boats.

   Frank hissed into Joe’s ear, “Pretend we can’t swim.”

   The boys thrashed about madly, crying for help.

I just love the way they tricked the bad guys! There’s more to the scene and I could keep going. There are a number of cool action scenes throughout the book. It’s really difficult not putting on more, but I can’t put practically the whole book on here. 😛 Believe me, you want to read this one. Most libraries should have it and certainly booksellers should also. 🙂

Brave Aunt Gertrude does a great job with helping Joe against a thug by using a shillelagh (shillelagh just sounds so cool) saving Joe from a vicious kick. 🙂 

Another great quote that is the difficult, but necessary stance ~

“We don’t go for deals,” Joe said.

Even when things looked bad they didn’t give up hope and are defiant against the bad guys. A lot of bravery in this mystery! Look at all they have to fight – greedy, violent, murderous thieves. Multiple kidnappings, grand larceny, and a lot more. That takes more than a little courage and skill – and of course, a lot of prayer!

The Hardy Boys #30 The Wailing Siren Mystery is available in hardback and digital formats at booksellers and libraries. I definitely recommend it! 🙂 😎

For everyone who has been reading it recently, too, or has read it before, or is looking forward to reading it, please let me know what you think! 🙂 There’s definitely a lot to like about this exciting mystery! 🙂 😎

Hardy Boys Adventures #14 Attack of the Bayport Beast ~ My Review

An entertaining read for this new Hardy Boys book, the 14th volume of the ongoing Hardy Boys Adventures series! 🙂 As Joe says in the book “Sounds like a mystery.” 😎 Yep! 🙂 Plenty of cool things to enjoy about this one! : the Hardy brothers – of course!, mysterious real and faux clues to discern, humor, bravery, along with a range of fun to intense sleuthing. The first chapter sets a good tone for the rest of the book by starting things off in a humorous and fun way. Already there are some great quotes as Frank, Joe, and their friend Hector are checking out the sci-fi convention in Bayport ~

I felt like I was babysitting two toddlers who were distracted by every toy they came across. ~ Frank Hardy

 😆 Haha! 😆 And then Frank talking about reality shows ~

Just because it’s called reality doesn’t mean it’s real

So very, very true, Mr. Hardy!!!! 😎

The cover art is really cool showing an excellent action scene. 😎

The brother team of Frank and Joe are ready for this challenge – an unusual mystery that needs to be investigated. It starts to become more dangerous and ominous as the book goes on. They have to be ready and observant as well as brave while they sleuth for clues. I really enjoyed catching the clues as they were woven into the mystery. 😎

Camping was cool with the descriptions of the national forest being really good – you could feel like you were there. There’re definitely some scary intense scenes. Of course camping is usually in tents, but also intense in this adventure!! 😉 Truly. Like Joe said about dealing with each serious thing “One catastrophe at a time.”

I love that the writer notes that Frank and Joe can see clues as if they were written out. An accurate description of the well-honed detective skills. I like it and really appreciate it when the writing reflects their great ability as detectives. Like it was in this book and others; that can be done without them knowing everything or knowing nothing. I always appreciate when the writer remembers, as this one did, that they are observant detectives, as opposed to some books where the characters are written like they don’t even have the basic concepts of Basic Detective Skills 101 down.

I’m glad the writer has them intrigued about the mystery of why there were claims of sightings while not believing it.

I have to say that “cool” and “zombie movie” are contrary, disconnected concepts and words. And millions of years is an archaic theory that remains unproven.

Some intriguing twists to the mystery. As I mentioned already, I enjoyed figuring out clues and potential reasons for what was going on. I was pretty sure that some things that had happened were important factors to what was going on. Good pace to the book, too.

Absolutely thought the poetic justice was very appropriate during the finale scene of the book.

The brother team, the sleuthing, the humor were great and I really enjoyed the book. 🙂 This I will want to read again – I’m glad I have this Hardys Boys Adventures in paperback. 😎

You can check out the paperback, hardcover, or ebook at bookstores, physical and online, and at your local library. 😎

The Hardy Boys Papercutz Graphic Novel #7 The Opposite Numbers ~ My Review

A roller coaster ride for The Hardy Boys graphic novel, The Opposite Numbers, volume 7 from Papercutz! 😀 Great cover, as you can see in this post! 😎 I love the beginning of the book with the case they’ve been working on. The brothers are doing their part to rescue Aunt Trudy’s parrot, Playback, and other animals. Good action and humor in the opening scenes – really enjoyable. 🙂 Very re-readable, too. 😀 I’ve read it quite a few times! 😎 I really like way the Undercover Brothers finish a case at the beginning of the books and then go to the next one. 😎 Opening with exciting action is always cool. 😎

After that excitement is wrapped up, it’s time for a break from school for a while. 😎 Nice seeing Chet and Callie. 😎 I like that Callie was going to use her free time to help kids. 😎 Some of the rest of that scene didn’t make sense with whoever the one student was supposed to be seemed like she was snobby and narcissistic. 🙄 Didn’t care for that. 

Great cover – another favorite Hardy Boys Graphic Novel cover art! 😎 

Hardy Boys Graphic Novel #7 The Opposite NumbersOne of my absolute fave scenes in the book is the part at the train, right after Frank and Joe arrive there to board, and the Hardy brothers bravely do what they can to prevent a literal train wreck. Cool when they immediately ran to help – talk about exciting! 😎 I loved that!  😎 Another favorite scene is when the conductor needs help getting back in the train after getting pushed by a culprit. Courage and excitement! Great action in all of those 5 star scenes! I love the excitement, the danger, and the excellent teamwork, as in any Hardy Boys books that I enjoy. 🙂 😎

The book could be a little bit distracting at times because it went back and forth between artists. First was Daniel Rendon, then Paulo Henrique, then back to Daniel Rendon, and then the rest of the book was Paulo Henrique and Sidney Lima.That shouldn’t stop anyone from reading it, though!

There were various characters on the train Frank and Joe had to help and contend with, providing several suspects. You had to figure out if the characters were just sorta odd or wackos. The Noir sisters are…annoiring. 😉 The gung-ho guard dude was also seriously annoying. There are annoying people out there, though! I knew there were two trustworthy people on the train – Frank and Joe. 😎

The parts I loved I really loved and want to read again! 🙂 Always, I love the brothers teamwork and not giving up even when things look bad! 😎

Hardy Boys graphic novel #7 The Opposite Numbers from Papercutz is available digitally at ebooksellers and at libraries as well as used booksellers in paperback and hardcover. 🙂 It’s definitely worth a read or two or more! 🙂

Hardy Boys Adventures #13 Bound for Danger ~ My Review

Hardy Boys Adventures #13 Bound for Danger

To start off my review for Hardy Boys Adventures #13, Bound for Danger, I’m going to quote my favorite line from the book – a great quote by Joe and he would definitely say this ~ “Well, that wasn’t fun.” Hazing is never fun.

There are things I liked about the book and things I didn’t like…..as will be seen in my review. 😉 The cover is cool. 😎

The first chapter hadn’t excited me when I read it in the back of The Madman of Black Bear Mountain. When I started reading Bound for Danger I found where the sneak peek had left off and started from there. I hadn’t forgotten the first chapter and didn’t want to read it again.

I don’t understand the author writing the brothers as almost clueless about basketball. It was for the sake of the mystery, I know, but it was distracting and incorrect. I don’t like things contrary to established Hardy facts. I pushed past that and hoped the rest was better and made up for that error. If I’d enjoyed the book more, it definitely would have been easier to ignore.

Fact I’d like to point out: you can be creative and musical AND be athletic.

The things I liked in the book: the Hardy brothers, the teamwork, the not giving up (error in book: said gave up but didn’t in actuality). I was hoping for like what to do about hazing or giving people ideas how to fight it. It didn’t exactly do that, so I talked it over with a sib (who usually also reads Hardy Boys books with me, but decided this wasn’t one to read. Correct decision.)

I like the brothers taking care of things, stopping the hazing, capturing and stopping bad people, and I love the brothers looking out for each other as always. I’m glad the book pointed out how hazing is wrong, cowardly, and bad. Hazing is warped and stupid. I believe people who commit acts of hazing are punks and thugs.

Hazing is wrong. It’s asinine. It’s wrong to hurt people, it’s cruel and I certainly wouldn’t feel any solidarity with anyone who did that to me. I’ve been taught to stand up for myself, think for myself, don’t go along with something that is wrong, cruel, or immoral. If anyone treats you like that, they aren’t your friends, they aren’t your teammates, and can’t be trusted. I’m not referring to silly pranks, I’m referring to dangerous, everyone-knows-it’s-harmful kinds of things. Joking around, punching and wrestling is fine and much different than beating someone up. Hazing is cruel and mean-spirited and no one should participate or condone it.

Something that is sadly accurate in the book is that not all teachers, etc., are trustworthy or willing to do the right thing and stand against hazing. Everyone needs to stand up against that.

Bound for Danger overall can be summed up with a number of words. Disturbing. A bit depressing. Confusing. Odd at times. Some things didn’t make sense of why some things were in there. :/

They stopped short several times – would have pursued about the fake essay, not just taken it. That was so frustrating.

I didn’t like profanity on page 68. I can overlook cussing, please don’t use profanity.

Of the most recent Hardy Boys Adventures, I would recommend to read #11 Showdown at Widow Creek and #12 The Madman of Black Bear Mountain instead of this one. I had hoped Bound for Danger would be a lot better than it was, but also it could have been worse.

I love the confidence Joe has in his big bro’s ability. 😎

I love the poetic justice when the Hardys scared the jerks – that was cool.

Like Joe, I have no idea what song they were singing at the end of the book. I’m glad it was a short book and I have hope that the next one, #14 Attack of the Bayport Beast, will be much better. 🙂

Slight spoiler: One of the victims of the hazing chose to become one of the evil mob doing the hazing. That made him guilty, too, by partaking. Those involved by ordering it are also guilty. That’s not something they’ve overcome together, that’s a criminal cowardly act – as noted in the book – that they’ve perpetrated. I’m very thankful that the author didn’t have Frank or Joe commit any of the acts of hazing, otherwise I would have hated the book because they wouldn’t do that.

The Hardy Boys #2 The House on the Cliff ~ My Review

If you love action and excitement, you will likely want to check out, along with the Hardy brothers, Frank and Joe, The House on the Cliff, and find out what the deal is there. 😉 Directions on how to reach it is easy, but once there it’s up to the reader and the Hardys. When reading The Hardy Boys The House on the Cliff, you’ll fight drug smugglers, search for clues, be there for exciting rescues, and solve the puzzling mysteries! 😎 Lots of cool action in this one!

I love mysterious houses and the house on the cliff definitely qualifies. Secret hiding places, etc. to search and explore. You can picture it all. Mysterious strangers, clues, suspects, sounds, are all in this mystery, waiting for you to investigate these things with the Hardys! 😎 You have to watch out for the bad guys – a deadly gang whose greed makes them ruthless and treacherous. They will attempt to outsmart you, but don’t let them trick you.

Also, a cool thing that you can find in this Hardy Boys mystery, as well as others, is the fact that Joe and Frank’s mom, Laura, keeps up with the cases and mysteries. I love that the whole family is close and there for each other. That’s the way it should be – a mother and father who care about their offspring, and the love and respect that all four Hardy family members have for one another. 😎

The search for Frank and Joe’s dad, Fenton, who’s been missing, and the action, danger, and excitement that comes with that is great! 😎 None of them ever give up and they take the dangerous risks they need to with courage and determination. That’s one of the many things I love about the Hardy Boys (and Nancy Drew, of course!) books. 😎 I learned cool things, too, when reading this book, another great thing about it. Plus, there are interesting characters, such as Pretzel Pete, to help in the search as well, with clues to assist the Hardy brothers. Biff, Tony, and Chet also help – Biff has a date, so he’s pretty anxious to get back. 😀 Their friends are there for them, though! 😎

Great intense scenes, particularly in the second half of the book, and of course there is danger and action throughout the mystery. The great brother team of Frank and Joe have to race against time as they search for their dad. They help each other and look out for each other as brothers should. 😎

The House on the Cliff has a number of favorite cool and exciting scenes that I love to read. The exciting finale has great Hardy action. An intriguing, suspenseful mystery and the Hardy brothers – you can’t miss. 😎

the-hardy-boys-collector-cover-for-2-the-house-on-the-cliff-by-franklin-w-dixonIn May of this year, the book was released with a collector cover and it is really cool! 🙂 And of course the cover art prior to that is also very cool! 😀 I love ’em both. 😀

The Hardy Boys #2 The House on the Cliff is available in hardcover as well as in ebook at your favorite booksellers and also should be at your local libraries. 🙂 Check it out for mystery, action, adventure and the Hardy brothers! 😎 This book is must-read for Hardy fans as they do the right thing and never give up! 😎

The Hardy Boys Papercutz Graphic Novel #5 Sea You, Sea Me ~ My Review

The fifth volume of the Hardy Boys Papercutz series, Sea You, Sea Me, is the very first Hardy Boys graphic novel that I read. It had already been out a while then when I saw a preview on Amazon of the opening action with the fencing scenes, and I was like, okay, that’s cool! 😀 Great artwork, witty banter, and the awesome brother team of Frank and Joe stopping anyone who needs to be stopped. It’s definitely one of my favorites. 😎

This is one of Frank and Joe’s many thrilling adventures where they must face serious obstacles. I enjoy cheering them on as they do a great job fighting evil. 😎

As I already mentioned, the action scenes right off the bat with Frank and Joe taking on bad guys in a fencing showdown is so cool! 🙂 I enjoy the comments and love the cool artwork. It’s also fun when the brothers get their next assignment. They’re anxious to see what it is as are you and me as the readers. In this case, they have to head up to Maine from Bayport, New York. 😎

Before they even reach the location of their assignment, which is to find out what the deal is on a fishing vessel, the brothers are propelled into action when they see danger they can do something about.That’s one of the reasons I love ’em. They see what needs to be done and they do that without hesitation. 😎

Hardy Boys Graphic Novel #5 Sea You Sea Me from PapercutzThere’s plenty of danger and excitement once on the ship, with suspects to question and an intense storm on the sea to survive. Plus, fighting a fire after an explosion and needing to circumvent attempts on their lives during all of the dangerous situations. The brothers are there for each other and know that they’re the only ones, humanly speaking, aboard the ship who they can definitely rely on and trust.:cool:

It’s really hard not to share all of my favorite scenes, but for anyone who hasn’t read the book yet, I know you’d want to read it yourself and see what happens. I love it that the brother teamwork is strong and I really enjoy seeing them stop bad people.They help people and are very brave. 😎

Joe’s ongoing fish puns are fun and Frank’s banter back about them. 😎

Frank’s swim meet at the end of the book with Joe encouraging his brother and joking around’s cool and fun. 😎 Yet another fave scene from the book! 🙂 😎

Hardy Boys Graphic Novel #5 Sea You, Sea Me is available in paperback and hardback at libraries, used booksellers, and also the volume is in the digital format of the ebook device of your choice. 🙂 A great read and re-read. 😀 Check it out for exciting adventure and action with the Hardy brothers! 😎
