This paper explains that the Hardy Boys, in 1964, in "The Shore Road Mystery" are mere boys who can think like crafty adults, can go out and challenge crooks and thieves, and find a farmhouse to call for help with just old-fashioned land-based phones. The author points out that a young man learns that hard work and perseverance plus brainpower and the use of good instincts lead to success, even for kids. The paper relates that "Encyclopedia Brown and the Case of the Sleeping Dog" leaves the reader wondering how a seemingly normal kid named Encyclopedia Brown could come up with this kind of skullduggery and carry it off.
