Alfred Hitchcock's Terror Inducing Children's Mysteries


The Three Investigators books ruled! I loved reading about their spooky adventures and always wished I could investigate mysteries with my friends. But we ever saw anything like that green ghost, we'd run right up a tree in terror.

I loved the Three Investigators... I might have to go hit the used bookstore and see if I can find these...

Jupiter Jones is a badass.

I remember that I read that book, but I can't remember the story at all. I think I might have read every Three Investigators book in the late 70's-early 80's.

I can't remember any of the stories either, but it is a great cover. I have a few of their books but would love to track down more.

Chris, did you read these when you were a kid? I just remember yammering on about them on one of our walks around Back Bay and insisting we should start a Three Investigators reading group or something, and then making you take one home with you.

Ha!

Of course, I read them as a kid. I loved them! I always wanted to have the adventurest they did, but it was not to be.

And they had that cool secret clubhouse that was an old trailer behind Jupiter's uncle's junk yard, and it had a secret entrance and everything.

Ol' Jupe was a , er, a stocky boy. he was the bossy one, with a big heart. Wore cut-offs a lot.

And Pete was darn athletic, kind of slow mebbe, but loyal.

Wasn't the third kid lame, or syphilitic or something?

Good times. Good times.

But I'm stil fat as ol' Jupiter, dammit.

The only book in the series I ever read was "The secret of terror castle", but I remember that it was an awesome story. I read it in the early 90's and it was a reprint with the three guys on the cover in modern clothing, so I didn't realize that it was a series or that it was as old as it is.
