a HUGE and most dedicated fan of Trixie and her crew. This is odd, of course, because they were MEANT for teen and pre-teen girls, but I was a young boy that read everything he could get his hands on and when I first stumbled on my first TRIXIE BELDON book I was instantly hooked!

I immediately sat about reading them all, as quickly as I could get my greedy little paws on them. Trixie is the star, or "lead" character, followed by Jim and Honey (who quickly became the love of my young life, I had

Totally stoked to finally track this down and read it for the first time. There is (obviously, see title) some period-typical problematic language and attitudes in this one, and it was clearly a first-time ghost-writer for the series as they managed to both mess up some really obvious continuity as well as duck out of writing anything about, like, half the Bob-Whites, but there was also some hilarious "look, I know some stuff!" type exposition about archaeology. As a completist, very happy to ha ...more

Trixie does it again: suspects the wrong person and misses a big clue, then realizes her mistake JUST IN TIME! Whew! Okay, when it's summer in Sleepyside, I like my girl detectives to have some down time! No pool, barbecues and only one horseback ride in this one! Nothing is as good as the first six books--as a kid, I read those again and again :)

This was a later edition to the TB series, which actual had many ghost writers over the years. As a result, some books had inconsistencies (like this one) and earned the ire of Trixie fans.

I think I spent the majority of babysitting income on these books.

Another good fun with Trixie and friends ... starting to get old, though, and repeat scenarios. Also this author (not the original, but she DID right many of the earlier books) does not seem to know things as well as I do. She said things like Trixie's favorite horse was Lady, and Honey chose Suzy ... completely forgetting that Suzy was the horse Trixie originally wanted to buy. I have enjoyed these books for so many years, and it's hard for me to think that the author does not share my passion ...more

If it weren't for Trixie Camp 2008, I might hate this book on an equal level with Antique Doll. Trixie Camp may be this book's only redeeming value. Trixie is suddenly terrified of ghosts? Responsible Miss Trask and Regan actually go along with Trixie's harebrained scheme to trap the bad guys? Pod Brian? Trixie's favorite horse is Lady? Since when? Ugh, ugh, ugh. Awful book!

Trixie Belden was one of my earliest great media obsessions. I absolutely adored all of the books and desperately wanted to be Trixie.

I love this one because 1. it takes place "at home" and 2. Reagan and Miss Task help out.

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.
