glue type for hardboard

Hey guys,
quick question...Is regular wood glue able to join hardboard to a wood frame? I'm assuming that the slick side would not accept wood glue, but what about the back? I'm working on a project for my son's first birthday, and will definately post pics when it's finished.

Any of the yellow or white glues will work.

Hi - yeah, just regular yellow glue works just fine.

I've used white glue, yellow wood glue and titebond III. All of them worked just fine.

There is a very fine line between a "hobby" and a "mental illness"

+1 to the yellow wood glue. I make a habit of spreading it around with some thing flat...like those fake credit cards that American Express is always sending me.
