Aunt Claire is reissuing the girls' adventure books that first began to be published around 1910-Nancy Drew's forgotten predecessors. These are fast-paced stories that kids (and adults) will still enjoy. They're also pieces of history, and Aunt Claire's illustrated introductions bring out their historical significance. Aunt Claire is a real person-a young editor, writer, and former middle school teacher-and she's available for interviews and appearances. Her web site, auntclairepresents.com, offers resources for parents, teachers, and librarians-including leveling information and curriculum alignments, writing prompts and discussion topics, and suggestions for further reading.
