Dear Little Jackalope,
I've got a pretty dumb question.You know what you go to Herinteractive and it shows that there's a weekend puzzle...Well,I love the pic it has of a scrapbook and a magnifying glass and I was wondering if that book was for real.I told you it was dumb.

From me,

I sent in the mystery word as three words. Will you count it as a wrong answer?

Ms. Random Nancy Drew Fan:
One-word, two-word, three-word or a phrase, it's all acceptable as long as you have the right letters in the right order ;)

Not a dumb question at all! Actually it's a good one, the fun fact is: It is not a real book that we have to hold, it is actually the Nancy Drew scrapbook that you see on Nancy's desk at the begining of several of the games. The scrapbook there is what lists all of the games and gives a summary with pictures from the past cases. Sound familiar?

We took that book and used it for the Amateur Sleuth blog slide on the homepage. :D

Did anyone read the Nancy Drew the haunted carousel, it as actually pretty surprising who the bad guy was and Joy Trent was in it as well :)

Thank for answering Little jackalope.I do remember seeing that book alot.I think it'd be so cool to have one for real.I have a book that i keep all my notes,phrases,phone numberes,and helps that need to be remembered while playing one of the games.Its like my own little 'Hint Hotline'

From me,

Random Nancy Drew Fan said...

Ok. Thank you! =D
I was looking at the cover art of CAR that you posted here and realized that the answer to the contest (or what I think the answer to the contest is, in case I'm wrong) is on there!
