Because weak little wimps like this fellow get all upset at what is essentially a book for teenage boys.

**The Onion AV Club**

I'm going to stop quoting here, because what follows is as predictable as the sun coming up in the morning and a liberal finding something pointless to be upset about.

My disclaimer: I still own a copy of *A Spell For Chameleon*... I made a trip to McKay's Used Books just to buy a copy.

Sad man, would he want the series sanitised for today's boys ?

I had an experience a few years ago with all things Nancy Drew books.

Granddaughter came to visit for a week, 8 years old, and I found she did not like to read. So I went out and bought a brand new Nancy Drew with the title of the first one I had read at her age or younger.

We would read to each other a chapter and then she or I would read another every day. Something was very wrong, the book had been updated and sanitised to the point it was dreadfully boaring.

I got into Moms attic and found a few of the original books that I had read, my Aunties books from the 1940's time. Now we were cooking, she as I did fell in love with the books and I caught her reading these on her own. No longer did she want to do anything but to, as I did ,fall into the book, she did not want me to read to her, she was in her own world with the book.

I spent some time haunting old book stores to get her the old books of the time, everything from the MR.&Mrs. North story's to Trixie Belden mystery's. She loved the Topper stories and I did get her the Rebbecca story and she cried.

As things work out instead of one week she spent the whole summer with me. When she went home she had a big box of books and because she spent so much time reading had gained 10 pounds.
