I love everything about a classic Nancy Drew mystery. The only reason the story gets a 4 star instead of a 5 is simply because it shows it's age in the writing style. This isn't inherently a bad thing, but it does keep it from being a "wow" of a 5. ( )

#18 A friend of Carson Drew’s has been arrested and charged with sending a truck loaded with explosive oranges into the Space Center complex at Cape Kennedy. Knowing that Mr. Billington could not possibly be guilt of sabotage, Nancy and her father rush to the defense of the accused man. During the Drews’ investigation Nancy become suspicious of an old spooky mansion that houses fierce African wild animals on its extensive grounds. Soon, she discovers that something besides the training of wild animals is going on at the mysterious estate. Many dangerous moments await Nancy before she proves Mr. Billington’s innocence and thwarts the plans of treacherous subversives bent on undermining the U.S. space program. ( )

Sneaky. I thought I was going to read a story about the Moss Covered Mansion, instead I learned about the Kennedy Space Center, astronauts,... it was a wonderful mystery with twists and turns that I did not expect to occur. It was very inspiring. It made me want to read space books afterwards. ( )

This was one of my favorite Nancy Drew books, I remember the creepiness of the mansion and the wild animals and how determined Nancy was to get in there in spite of the creepiness. ( )
