The Clue of the Tapping Heels [revised]

The Clue of the Tapping Heels [revised, 1967]

Nancy Drew Mystery Stories #16

by Carolyn Keene [original by Mildered W. Benson]

The first five chapter were certainly different. One of the oddest Nancy Drew books I’ve read. Because of this, I almost enjoyed it.

By the odd plot displayed in this book, I can only imagine how strange the original text is.  First,  the opening scene is in the Drew’s’recreational basement room’ (haven’t heard that one in a while), where Nancy is tap-dancing in code. Why? Bess and George want to know. Because Nancy’s been asked to solve a mystery involving a mysterious tap-dancer! GASP!

Not only that, but for unknown reasons a bunch of cats have been stolen from the very same lady! Huh.

Well, like I said, different is the word.
