Regular price $4.50 Sale

In 1982, Benjamin Hoff published The Tao of Pooh, a plainspoken yet startling and complex take on A.A. Milne's Winnie The Pooh stories. Hoff's keen insights propelled the book, and its sequel, The Te of Piglet to total sales of over 2.5 million copies. Now Hoff has turned to another childhood classic, Franklin W. Dixon's beloved Hardy Boys mysteries, and created The House on the Point.As a child, Hoff loved the Hardy Boys; they were the books that hooked him on his lifelong love of reading. Recently, he revisited The House on the Cliff, one of the classic early Hardy Boys mysteries, and decided to reshape it for readers of all ages. Hoff sets this recast story, now entitled The House on the Point, in 1947, when the Swing Era was giving way to the Baby Boom, and gives it a plot involving a post-war smuggling racket, a young newcomer to town who may have something to hide, and a police chief who's in no hurry to investigate. And he does so with a greater attention to detail, more fully developed characters, and a modern ear for dialogue.Publishing in conjunction with the 75th anniversary of the first Hardy Boys mystery, The House on the Point is a book for those who haven't yet made the acquaintance of the Hardy Boys and those who haven't 'grown up' and left their adventures behind. This 2002 St. Martin's Minotaur Hardback is in Near Mint condition.
