Hardcover - First Edition - very clean, b&w fontspiece, no marks, clean inside, clean yellow boards with red lettering, unsunned spine, v minor soiling, page toning as normal for this series, no dj - Kay Tracey Series - The Kay Tracey Mysteries were published under the name Frances K. Judd, a house pseudonym of the Stratemeyer Syndicate, a book packager. The series was conceived as a response to the popularity of the Nancy Drew Mystery Stories and likewise features a teenage girl detective. While the original entries in the series lasted only from 1934 to 1942, the books were updated, revised, and have been re-issed numerous times, most recently by Bantam Books in the 1980s, and have been translated into Swedish and French. Many critics see Kay Tracey as markedly inferior to Nancy Drew, but some find the series to be significant as one of a number of series that provided girls with a feminist role model prior to third-wave feminism. - Tracey, Kay (Fictitious character) -- Juvenile fiction.,Women detectives -- Juvenile fiction.,Adventure stories., Nº de ref. de la librería 21397.220712
