The Hardy Boys is a series of juvenile criminal detection books, chronicling the fictional adventures of teenage brothers Frank and Joe Hardy. The original Hardy Boys series was produced by Stratemeyer Syndicate, published by Grosset & Dunlap, and written by many different authors between 1927 and 1979. Leslie McFarlane was the first author to write under the pen name Franklin W. Dixon, which he did for over 20 volumes.

To this day new Hardy Boys adventures are published by Simon & Schuster's imprint, Aladdin Paperbacks in The Hardy Boys Undercover Brothers series, The Hardy Boys Undercover Brothers Super Mystery series, and the Nancy Drew and the Hardy Boys Super Mystery series. A graphic novel series based on the novels has been published since 2005 by Papercutz (with permission from Simon & Schuster).
