In celebration of the 75th anniversary of the first appearance of Nancy Drew, Applewood Books is pleased to release the 20th volume in its reproductions of the Original Nancy Drew-Just as You Remember Her. The Clue in the Jewel Box was ghostwritten by Mildred Wirt. It was first issued in January 1943. Its nostalgic dust jacket art and frontispiece were illustrated by Russell Tandy. In The Clue in the Jewel Box Nancy and her friends help Queen Madame Alexandra search for her missing grandson. With only an old photograph of the prince at four years of age, Nancy begins her search. She discovers a secret in a jewel box that helps reunite the royal family.
Author Bio
Carolyn Keene
Mildred Wirt Benson is one of several authors who has written mystery novels about girl detective Nancy Drew under the pseudonym Carolyn Keene. Benson, however, was the first of them, and wrote 23 of the 30 books in the original series. An agreement with the publishing company forced Benson to keep her identity secret; the truth about her work was revealed years later when she testified in a court case involving the publisher of the books. The series has sold over 200 million books and has been translated into 17 languages, but Benson was paid only $125 per book and received no royalties. In addition to the Nancy Drew books, Benson wrote the Penny Parker mystery series and several short stories; she also worked as a journalist for the Toledo Times (later known as The Blade). In 1927 Benson became the first person to receive a master's degree in journalism from the University of Iowa.
