Penny Nichols Finds a Clue is the first volume in the Penny Nichols series, from 1936. The series of four books was written by the prolific Mildred A. Wirt (Nancy Drew, Penny Parker, Kay Tracey) from 1936 to 1939 under the pseudonym Joan Clark. Although a short series, she would also name another heroine Penny in her favorite and long-running series, the Penny Parker Mystery Stories. Her heroines were always strong, smart, independent, and fearless. This series by Wirt is in the public domain in the U.S. according to research by Gutenberg.org.
