I read all of the Trixie Belden books when I was a kid, and recently re-read the first one in a fit of nostalgia. It's every bit as much fun as I remember.
I loved Trixie Belden books as a child. My Mother used to buy them for me to read. Sadly, I lost my collection of these books so now I am trying to re-collect them for my grand-children. They are wonderful books!
Trixie cant believe she is stuck in Sleepyside all summer while her lucky brothers are away at camp. Then a millionaire's daughter moves in next door, a runaway kid hides out nearby, and rumours hear up that the old mansion on the hill is filled with a fortune. Maybe the summer wont be so boring after all?
If you like Nancy Drew and horses, you'll love Trixie Belden! You've gotta read books 1-3 FIRST before reading the rest of the series. In this book, Trixie meets Honey and they both find runaway Jim in the abandoned mansion down the road. This book is like a Part One of three parts. These first three are some of the best of the series... but there are a lot of other really good books in this series too. Have fun reading!
