Introduction to Series Books for Girls
This site was designed with three goals: to provide information about many of the more obscure series books; to display cover art galleries not readily available on other sites; and to present information in an easy to find fashion. It is my hope that I have succeeded on all three points.
When I first began collecting series books during the early 1990s, I focused on the more common series such as Nancy Drew, Trixie Belden, the Dana Girls, Judy Bolton, Connie Blair, and Kay Tracey. When I first used the internet during the late 1990s, I was able to easily obtain information concerning these series by searching the web. After 2000, I gradually branched out into the more obscure series such as Peggy Lane, and my search for Peggy Lane information was the catalyst for the creation of this site. I could only find one site on the internet with the information I was seeking, and it was difficult to find.
I began to build this site during 2003 beginning with the Peggy Lane and Trailer Stories for Girls sections. Since that time, I have added sections on many different series books, with my primary focus on the more obscure series. However, I certainly could not leave out all of the more prominent series, so I had to go back and create the sections for the major series. Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden were the two hardest sections to do since both series had already been exhaustively covered on the internet.
For some of the major series, there is still a certain amount of information missing, and I am gradually going back and filling in some of the missing parts. I have yet to finish the Trixie Belden summaries, but I hope to continue working on them in the near future. I am also continually adding to the cover art galleries of several of the major series, especially Nancy Drew, Judy Bolton, the Dana Girls, and Trixie Belden. Most of the new additions are library bindings, and I will often add a scan to a section without making any mention of it on my updates page.
One last thingI am not Jennifer Fisher, the site owner of www.nancydrewsleuth.com. I have several times had someone contact me with the mistaken belief that the two of us are the same person. Jenn Fisher and I are two completely different people who are about the same age, share the same first name, and share a love of Nancy Drew.
