Earphones Award Winner

by | Read by Bill Irwin

Children Ages 8+ • 3 hrs. • Unabridged • © 1927

"Come on, boys. I found a swell clue!" The Hardy Boys emerge from a 1927 time capsule, but amazingly, are unscathed. These young detectives--favorites to generations of young readers--burst into the twenty-first century, chasing a friend's stolen jalopy, uncovering a thief's disguise, digging in the garden of the Tower mansion. Bill Irwin gives a terrific performance in this first in a series of audiobooks of the boys' mystery adventures. Irwin is earnest, honest and anxious to please, yet never overplays the adventures. He engages listeners as the suspense unfolds and stays totally committed to the story. Listeners do, too. For adults listeners, here's a campy mystery to delight in. For youngsters, Irwin is likely to convert a new generation to the Hardy Boys. R.F.W. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: AUG/SEP 02]
