    1. I'm a fan of Washington Irving and his stories, especially that of the Headless Horseman. Trixie and Honey witness this frightening apparition but soon Trixie stars to wonder if it is a ghostor man.Also involved are simpler mysteries of a widow whose husband loved to leave her puzzles to figure out. He died before he could let her in on the secret of where her birthday present is, and Trixie and the Bob-Whites are determined to find it for her. Also involved is a mystery of a missing Ming Vase. [...]

    2. I expected the infamous Headless Horseman from *The Legend of Sleepy Hollow*, particularly when I saw that a lot of action took place in "Sleepyside Hollow", but it's a different one! (The story does come up and is briefly told though.) Two things -- I love the way characters from the area we meet in earlier stories keep getting brought back, even if only for a brief cameo appearance :D -- and I love the way there is always a bit of something to learn from the books that you might not know (espe [...]

    3. (3.8)Yes there's an actual mystery but it hidden behind that STUPID FAKE PLOT BETWEEN DI AND TRIXIE. THAT WAS NOT NECESSARY GHOST WRITER. NOT NECESSARY. But my bby Dan is great in this one, so I'm not too mad.Recommended 10+ for scary situations

    4. After book number 25 this book is wonderful, back to the funny sibling banter between Mart and Trixie, Sleepyside-on-Hudson and Trixie lowkey noticing how handsome Jim is (and they hold hands :D) 4 stars out of 5.

    5. 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 [...]

    6. Kathryn Kenny certainly thought this one through! I only remember reading maybe the first Trixie Belden, but this was really good. I'm not a huge fan of mysteries because they always bore me, but this had humor and the typical middle school drama between friends. If I could describe Trixie Belden in one word, it would be persistent, which makes her an even greater detective! If it weren't for Trixie's curiosity, the gang never would have solved the mystery. However, Trixie's stubbornness sometim [...]

    8. When Di’s butler goes missing, all the Bob-Whites try to find him. Only when he does turn up, his explanations don’t make any sense. What is he hiding? Does it have anything to do with a missing Ming vase? And what about the apparition that Trixie and Honey spot?This is definitely a fun entry in the series with a plot that holds up to rereading as an adult and characters who are mostly in character. Di isn’t for much of the book, but it is explained as part of the plot. Not explained is wh [...]

    9. 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 [...]

    10. This one is kind of fun although a bit nuts. It's hard to think of teen-agers jumping to so many awful conclusions, and not bothering to check with any grown ups about them. But the squabbles, and the friendships are kind of fun to follow, and the mystery is fun.

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

    12. Several "supernatural" themes in row leave me a little cold in the middle part of this series. Di is a pod in this one. But I did love the alphabet trees and the pictogram cards.

    13. I read this when I was in GRADE school. I don't remember it at ALL. but, dern it, I READ it, so there.

    14. I really loved that this book finally took time to develop some of Diana's personality. It was a much needed thing!

    15. I liked this one because the whole series you will hear the Headless Horseman mentioned because Trixie and her friends live near Sleepyside. In this book they finally have an encounter with him!

    16. Had a hard time getting into this story; despite the regional folklore and the hometown setting. Any way, I've got to rev it up if I am to finish this series before Aug. 26. Next!

    17. I always enjoy this series. I hate when Trixie gets in a fight with Honey, Di, Jim, or Dan though.I generally feel as though this was just one of the average books in the series.

    18. Long time since I've read a Trixie Belden. She's sweet, and the mysteries are comfort reading, but apart from the delightful alphabet trees, nothing really stands out.
