    1. I am so happy to finally have read another Trixie Belden book! It's only been a month, but it feels like forever since I read one. ;) I think the author did a really good job of portraying Trixie's character this time around. She loves outdoorsy things and is adventurous, but she doesn't have a huge temper and she's not completely disrespectful to her friends and family!The plot was a little confusing at points, and I think a few things were a little too rushed, but overall it was fine. Also the [...]

    2. getting rid of the Dodge. Kids interpret words differently than grown ups, especially if their vocabulary is not fully formed yet. This is a book that looks at that difference with the appearance of two kids in Trixie's neighborhood. It's an enjoyable book.

    3. This is one of my favorites in the series. I like books that take place in Sleepyside because Crabapple Farm reminds me of where I grew up. When a baby is found in Reddy's doghouse, Trixie knows she will stop at nothing to find out how it got there and who it belongs to. They name the baby Moses--incidentally, a dog rescued from a flood in #9 Happy Valley Mystery is also named Moses--and the Bob-Whites take turns caring for the baby.Soon he is reunited with this mother, but there is still anothe [...]

    4. 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 [...]

    5.

    6. Someone needs to report Peter Belden for ethics violations. The story opens with Mr. Belden telling his wife about the Dodge family, who recently lost their home and possessions. Should he really be talking about the financial affairs of his customers? I think not.Trixie and Bobby discover an abandoned baby in Reddy's doghouse and Sergeant Molinson aks for the Belden-Wheeler Detective Agency's help in cracking the case. They locate the baby's parents and discover there is still a missing child i [...]

    7. When the Belden family find a baby in their doghouse, it sets Trixie off on another mystery. Who is the baby? And why would someone leave him in the doghouse? This is a great entry in the second half of the series since it gives all the main characters a part to play and develops one of the secondary characters.Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.

    8. Possibly my absolute, very favorite Trixie: for the touching story of a desperate family, children's logic, and the solid and sensitive writing of the ghost writer, said to be Gladys Baker Bond. Bond shows us Helen Belsen's emotions when she tears up over her eldest son "growing up so fast.". Rereading this as a mom has stirred emotions I am sure I did not feel at my first go.

    9. The Kathryn Kenny Trixies are a bit hit or miss, but this one was really, really miss. The amount of baby-related glurge, put in the mouths of absolutely everyone from Bobby on up, is completely inexplicable.Oh well; I would have been much more disappointed if I had found this one when I was younger.

    10. Should rate a 2 because the moron who wrote this one (Kathryn Kenny was a pseudonym for multiple writers for this series) called Trixie "not a horse person". Ugh. Yeah, moron, how about reading the series you are writing in.If I could write, I'd bring Trixie & the Bob-Whites into the future they dreamed of. :)

    11. Love the setting in this one. Love the Belden's banker father dancing in the rain after being bribed with two cents by his youngest son. The mystery is kind of unbelievable in such a small town but I enjoyed it and the way the Bob-Whites were all prominent.

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

    13. A found baby, a missing boy and a ransom note raise more questions and worries than are answered - until Trixie and Honey solve the mystery!

    14. This one was really good. Trixie and her brothers find an abandoned baby in Reddy's dog house. They go on a quest to find out how the baby got there and who's baby it is.

    15. When the Belden family finds an abandoned baby in Reddy's doghouse, the Bob-White gang are determined to discover who left him there and why.

    16. This is the first one I ever read! I read it while I was sick one time and my mom got it for me from the library. It isn't my favorite, but it will always be the first! And I LOVE the end!

    17. 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 [...]

    18. October 2008 enjoyable re-read, again fun to see young people helping others. Not as good as the original books in the series, though.
