I have wondered (though not when I read it first!) what else John and Nancy discussed when they went off to investigate Leading Lights (SA11)! But although the "elders" in the later books would be well into their teens, the "brats" (to use the term in WH) were not, and the last book GN is largely about the younger ones in the shore party, particularly Dick and Roger!

Even if there were what the local library calls YA or Young Adult books in the thirties, I donít think child readers of the series would have wanted the later ones to become YA books about the four "elders" (John & Susan plus Nancy & Peggy).
