Nancy Drew Esetei (Nancy Drew Cases)


The Magyar Nancy Drews were published by Rege Kft, in association with Maecenas International. The books are translated into Hungarian by Maria Boda. This publisher uses the American artwork but reformatted the cover style.

Per Simon & Schuster, 6 titles from the Nancy Drew "classic" series were released in Hungary. Although S&S indicated that the titles were from the "classic" series, the examples found in the wild have been 2 from the paperback series and 2 from the Files, and only 4 titles overall.
