JARIR BOOKSTORE - Riyadh, 2006

In conversations with Simon & Schuster, I was informed that they had signed a deal with an Arabic publisher for the Girl Detective series, but it took me 2 years to track down these editions.  

It appears that the first five Girl Detective books were issued at the same time in 2006, and no further titles have been released since then.

These were the first Nancy Drew books ever published in Arabic, which is the 5th most spoken language in the world, with by 255 million speakers.  With the newest addition of Arabic to the roster, you can now collect Nancy Drew books in 26 foreign languages.

Digest size paperback - completely mimics the US editions issued by Aladdin (layout, cover art) except that the spine is on the right side instead of the left
