The books are still findable, though you have to dig around for the "real" ones. I loved the series too, and my seven-year-old inherited all my copies and then demanded more. For Christmas last year, we dug around on Bibliofind and found a whole mess of VG paperbacks for around $5 apiece, which she's read and reread and reread. (I bet library sales would also be a good place to find these, actually.)

There are also revised versions coming out--Alfred Hitchcock has been cut from them, and the slang has been updated a bit and so forth. They're okay, fairly reasonable and all, but I still prefer the originals. No conetest.

Later, Vicky
