Would you consider The Hardy Boys books to be a kid's series or adult books?

I went to a thrift store today and found one kid's book,and a Hardy Boys one. The kids books are 2 for $1. When I went to pay,she tried to say that it wasn't a kid's book,and I had to pay full price. I wasn't try to pull a fast one on the store,those AREN'T adult books. She said she'd give it to me for the 50 cent price,but she gave me a big sigh and the eyeroll. As if she was doing me a favor or something.

  • They are for kids. I read them as a pre-teen, and the Hardy Boys series on TV was also for kids.

  • LOL. Those are kids' books. Unless they're thinking the board books/simple early readers/Dr. Suess books as kids books and any sort of chapter book as an adult book?

  • They are youth books, and iirc, all of the Hardy Boys and Nancy Drew books had that printed somewhere on the spine.

  • I guess I read a few as a preteen. Did the store mean that only picture books were discounted?

  • They're for kids 8-12 not adults although I did read a Nancy Drew a few years back just to see if it was as good as I remembered them. It sure wasn't like I remembered.
