For Christmas one year, my parents grabbed me the entire Trixie Belden set and I couldn't put them down. After I finished with them, they continued to purchase them as quickly as I could read them. Even with a learning disability, I devoured the books. I look back now and I find that Trixie Belden was much more age related to young girls, particularly to me, reading the books than Nancy Drew. There was something in these books that I found to be a greater escape than I did ND, too. I found that...more

This one holds a particular place in my heart. Not because it was especially good. I have no memory of what it's about, actually, but for years I hid from my dirty little secret of my childhood love. By high school, I was embarrassed by how much time and money I'd spent on Trixie. I'd been the only one I knew who'd read the books.

This book was much better than the last ... but again, I do not remember reading this. All of these later books I know I read but it was only once and years ago, and they obviously didn't make a lasting impression.

This episode in the lives of Trixie and friends finds them helping someone ... and finding once again that life is all about helping others. Lots of fun, and good, easy, reading.
I like all the Bob-Whites together and working together in this one. This book also contains one of my favorite lines in the series, Trixie's, "Math ruins everything," which is my basic philosophy of life.
How appropriate to read this today as we prepare for the big car show of the summer. There will be no Fords at this show, however.
Not sure whether I've ever read this one.

*****I hadn't, but blah.

Re-read May 2011. Trixie is annoying in this one.
I usually like all of them but this one a wasn't a favorite.
Rummage sales, charity, old cars and a crazy inventor.

The Kathryn Kenny pseudonym was created by Western Publishing House in 1961, three years after Julie Campbell wrote her last book (#6) of the Trixie Belden series. There were several ghost writers who wrote Trixie Belden stories under this pseudonym. Some have been identified and later credited but some are still unknown.
