Description by

Much has been written about the girl sleuth in fiction, a feminist figure embodying all the potential wit and drive of girlhood. Her male counterpart, however, has received much less critical attention despite his popularity in the wider culture. This collection of eleven essays examines the boy detective and his genre from a number of critical perspectives, addressing the issues of these young characters, heirs to the patriarchy yet still concerned with first crushes and soda shop romances. Series explored include the "Hardy Boys", "Tow Swift", the "Three Investigators", "Christopher Cool" and "Tim Murphy", as well as works by Astrid Lindgren, Mark Haddon, and Joe Meno.
