I like this book because they are brothers and are able to solve a mystery together, they listen to everyone s clue the mystery is Who stole the ZCross5000 They use the five W s Who, What, Where, When, and How to solve the mystery I dislike this book because the slimy things on the ZCross5000 was the dogs saliva, and the girl and boy can not be together This book is about Bayport Elementary throwing a fundraiser for the brothers to go to Florida Ellie s parents are asking people to bring th I like this book because they are brothers and are able to solve a mystery together, they listen to everyone s clue the mystery is Who stole the ZCross5000 They use the five W s Who, What, Where, When, and How to solve the mystery I dislike this book because the slimy things on the ZCross5000 was the dogs saliva, and the girl and boy can not be together This book is about Bayport Elementary throwing a fundraiser for the brothers to go to Florida Ellie s parents are asking people to bring things they want to use for raffle The most famous prize is the ZCross5000 that most kids want so badly During the raffle the ZCross5000 goes missing The person who took the prize is Sherlock the dog because when Phil went inside the dog was chewing the box The Video Game Bandit means that someone stole the video game I have a son who wants to be a spy and a mechanic, so this modern take on Joe and Frank Hardy is fun before bed reading At 5 my kiddo is not exactly a master mystery solver, but it s fun to watch him try to track the clues and begin thinking critically about details. This Version Works for Me, and for Younger ReadersWe all know who the Hardy Boys are, and we ve all seen the original Hardy Boys books both the original pre War versions and the revised and modernized reissues from around the 60 s But, there have been manyseries since then, all of them, of course, written by Franklin W Dixon This particular volume is the latest variation on the Boys adventures It s

original Hardy Boys books both the original pre War versions and the revised and modernized reissues from around the 60 s But, there have been manyseries since then, all of them, of course, written by Franklin W Dixon This particular volume is the latest variation on the Boys adventures It s worth summarizing which series is which because there is a great deal of difference in the target reader demos, and the accompanying complexity and violence, for each series I ve borrowed freely from a number of internet sources to draft this summary and I think it s generally correct Starting in 1979 we began to get 131traditional Hardy Boys Mysteries that follow on the original 59 books That series continued to 2005 and followed the original Hardy Boys style From 1997 to 2000 we got The Clues Brothers for elementary school readers They were simplistic and pretty bad and the series was retired early Undercover Brothers ran from 2005 to 2012 and featured older Hardy Boys involved inrealistic and violent crimes They are narrated in the first person They have since been rebooted as The Hardy Boys Adventures and that series is still running There s also something called the Casefiles , which is also for older readers Which brings us to this book From 2010 to 2015 we have 19 volumes of The Hardy Boys Secret Files , which feature the Hardy Boys as grade school detectives That series has now been rebooted as The Hardy Boys Clue Book This Clue Book series features the same younger Hardy Boys, but adds an interactive element by inviting the reader to detect along with the Boys The Video Game Bandit is the first book in this brand new series So, what do we think of it Video Game Bandit is better written, better plotted, and generallyengaging than the very lame Clues Brothers series So, if, like me, you were dismayed after picking up one of those books, don t despair Video Game Bandit is still aimed at younger readers, and the crime, here, a fancy gaming system is stolen from a charity auction , is fairly straightforward, but it is all around a better andentertaining reading experience.The mystery isn t very demanding and there aren t too many clues, but the hallmark of Hardy adventures always seemed to me to be the interactions the boys have with each other and with the various witnesses and suspects More care is invested in trying to create distinct secondary characters and in scene setting, and this strikes me as a virtue in the sense that younger readers get to read an actual balanced work of fiction instead of a bare procedural like you get with Encyclopedia Brown.So, don t despair if you tried The Clues Brothers This is a decent early reader entry in the Hardy Boys canon, and struck me as worth a try.Please note that I received a free

generation can fall in love with the young sleuths as they go on adventures that aremodern and in touch with the children of today The Clue Book series is a new reboot of The Hardy Boys for elementary school readers, and it starts off pretty well with The Video Game Bandit.Frank and Joe are helping host a fundraiser for their local sports team, the Bayport Bandits One of the items on the auction list is the much coveted ZCross5000, a new gaming system that is sold out everywhere However, when the time comes to auction it off, the system has gone missing Frank and Joe race to uncover where the gaming system went before the auction ends without meeting their fundraising goal.There is a stopping point before the thief is revealed so that readers can write down clues and who they believe is to blame I believe that this is the interactive part the blurb talks about, and was slightly disappointed At the very least, it should include multiple stopping points as Frank and Joe discover new clues along the way.However, the story is simple and entertaining I knew whodunnit almost immediately, although the target audience may not catch on so suddenly , the illustrations are well done and help point out important clues, and I enjoyed it as a quick read and new installment in a beloved canon E ARC from Edelweiss Above the TreelineFrank and Joe s baseball team is having a fund raiser so that

pictures, and this was a fun, quick read Weaknesses I can never tell Frank and Joe apart, unless they are being played by Shaun Cassidy and Parker Stevenson Sigh There s a happy thought for your day What I really think I prefer The Hardy Boys Adventures, but since I have so many struggling readers, I think I will purchase this series as well An earlier incarnation, The Pumped Up Pizza Problem Hardy Boys Clues Brothers 9 has seen a lot of wear and tear in my library, and this would make a good replacement I often read some children novels to somehow have a light read in my currently reading books, which commonly have scifi dystopia, contemporary and YAs And this is somehow quite disappointing because I ve read a book or two of the Hardy Boys and the case is somehow easy to solve and the Hardy boys are overlooking or not giving much attention to the clues they have, butfocused on some suspicious persons But since it is for children, it is quite alright I often read some children
