Mouseketeer fans can travel back to the swinging '60s with Walt Disney Presents: The Annette Mysteries, a boxed set of four paperbacks starring actress Annette Funicello, written by Doris Schroder. Originally published more than 40 years ago, The Desert Inn Mystery, illus. by James Schaeffing; Annette and the Mystery at Moonstone Bay and Sierra Summer, both illus. by Adam Szwejkowski; and Annette and the Mystery at Smuggler's Cove, illus. by Nathalee Mode, have been reprinted with the original line art (in green, blue or red hues). Vintage characters with names like Babs and Jinks hang out in places like the Choc Shop, before trouble starts and Annette must save the day with her plucky good sense. .
