Book Description

July 31 2008 Judy Bolton Mysteries (Book 35)
"It is strange that she remembers a doll's name and not her own," Judy agrees when her friends ask about the little girl Judy and her FBI husband, Peter Dobbs, have taken into their home after the orphanage fire. The mystery deepens when the toy shop where Judy has seen the doll apparently disappears. At the library across the street the little girl, known only as Sister, puzzles Judy still further by insisting that the librarian is her mother. They both seem to know a strange character called Auntie Grumble, but is she real? And who are the mysterious men who made the doll walk and talk and sing? Can Judy and Peter be sheltering a kidnapped child? Somewhere, Judy is sure, there must be a hidden clue to the identity of Sister and her baby brother. How Judy finds it and follows it against the wishes of her father, Dr. Bolton, makes an unusual mystery story that will at first baffle and then delight readers.

About the Author

Margaret Sutton was born Rachel Irene Beebe in Odin, Pennsylvania in 1903. She was the daughter of Victor Beebe, a well-known historian, and Estella Andrews Beebe. Being a spirited nonconformist, she dropped out of high school, but in 1920, graduated from the Rochester Business Institute. After graduation, she worked for several years as a secretary and in printing. During that time, she met William Sutton at a church dance in New York City. After a courtship exchanging poems and playing chess, they were married in 1924, and she began writing stories for her husband's daughter, Dorothy. Her first Judy Bolton Mystery was published in 1932 under the pen name Margaret Sutton. Ms. Sutton wove many real events and places into the Judy Bolton stories through the 35-year history of the series. She also wrote numerous stories for children and young adults. She was also active in social causes, joining the historic March on Washington in 1964. In 1965, her husband of more than 40 years died. In 1975, after traveling extensively, she married a long-time family friend, Everett Hunting. They moved to Berkeley, California and made their home there until 1993 when they moved back to Pennsylvania. Mr. Hunting died shortly after they moved. In 2001, at the age of 98, Margaret Sutton died in Lock Haven, Pennsylvania, not far from her native Potter County.

5.0 out of 5 stars Judy Bolton #35 - The Hidden Clue Aug. 19 2008
By J. Michael Click - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Kudos to Applewood Books for reprinting "The Hidden Clue", one of the hardest to find titles in the 38 volume Judy Bolton mystery series (1932-1967). This high quality softcover is slightly larger in size than the original Grosset & Dunlap picture cover edition which was originally published in 1964, but otherwise contains an exact replica of the original, with the cover art and internal illustrations intact. The only slip-up appears on Applewood's introductory title page in which the book's illustrator is identified as Pelagie Doane; Doane illustrated the first 19 titles in the series, after which an assortment of (mostly unidentified) artists took their turns.

Unlike many other contemporary series like Nancy Drew and the Dana Girls, the Judy Bolton books maintain a chronological order, with characters and events in each book affecting the plots of succeeding volumes in the series. For that reason, it is superb to see "The Hidden Clue" - a very difficult book to find since the original print run was so small - back in print, so that many of Judy's devoted fans can fill the holes remaining in their collections.

My LAST addition to my collection of Judy Bolton books, begun about 50 years ago when I was very young. Good books, not as good as some of the others, but definitely enjoyable.

I used to read Judy Bolton mysteries when I was a child and now my 12 year old granddaughter says they are the best mystery series she reads.
