    1. I have been happily re-reading the Trixie Belden series over the past few weeks. When I was in middle school in the 80's, this was my favorite book series. I received new books for nearly every holiday, and babysat my ill-behaved nephew to earn money to buy more of the books. Those trips to Walden Books at the mall to get another Trixie book are what started my love of bookshops! I had the entire series, and I remember being so excited when two new books came out in the late 80s. Then the series [...]


    2. This another issue that has almost a gothic feel to it with burned out mansions, a 40-year mystery, a dangerous marsh, and and elderly lady who lives at the edge of the swamp.I really enjoy this book, and I love learning about the herbal lore that the Bobwhites learn about as they pick samples to replace a teacher's prized herbal collection. I wish it had come with some recipes or more instructions on making poultices and teas with the herbs the kids findbut, there are internet sites devoted to [...]


    3. In this one, people complain that there isn't really a mystery involved. I don't see why. Trixie can't always be solving a mystery 24/7 nonstop. And it wasn't like the book was bland, either. There was plenty of action and suspense to keep you satisfied. Favorite Kathryn Kenney book so far, four-and-a-half-stars out of five.


    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. First, a bit of background on the Trixie Belden series. Trixie Belden is a 13-year-old girl detective, and this series is much in the same vein as Nancy Drew, only aimed at a slightly younger readership (which, of course, doesn't discourage me from reading them!) There were 39 books published between 1948 and 1986, and while they're all attributed to Kathryn Kenny, this is actually a pseudonym. The first 6 books were written by Julie Campbell, and the rest were written by various other writers ( [...]


    6. Pretty well-done. The characterization was better than usual. However, I still have a bone to pick: DAN IS NONEXISTENT. I mean, he's there! He's supposedly friends with the Bobwhites. (And even more supposedly, a Bobwhite himself. Yeah, right.)The excuses that they give for why he's not there are worse.And I quote: "Dan Mangan wouldn't be able to do as much as the others, because his chores at Mr. Maypenny's kept him very busy from early morning till late at night, with only enough time off to a [...]


    7. I always forget about this one. Trixie and Honey decide to make an herbarium for their botany teacher and stay up all night with butterbrot and coffee oh wait, wrong series.Trixie and Honey venture to Martin's Marsh to gather some weeds for their elderly botany teacher. There they meet Miss Rachel, last of the Martins, living in the old Martin Estate servants' quarters. In the subplot, unhappy child violin prodigy Gaye Hunya is staying at Manor House and gets on Trixie's nerves. You'd think that [...]


    8. A childhood favorite re-visited.Is the story as good as I remember? – YesWhat ages would I recommend it too? – Ten and up.Length? – Most of a day’s read.Characters? – Memorable, several characters.Setting? – Real world, pre - computer pre - air conditioning, pre - cell phone.Written approximately? – approximately 1963.Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – Ready to read more.Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? Yes. A slight mention of t [...]


    9. Okay so the description of this book is misleading, the story has little to nothing to do with looking for gold.Honey's cousin Gaye a young violin prodigy is staying with the Wheelers with her Aunt Della while preparing for a concert. The child seems spoiled and obnoxious and runs away from her aunt causing a big to do. She hides out at old Rachel Martin's and this leads to a nosy and unscrupulous reporter printing a nasty story about Mrs. Martin that ends up having the city decide it's time she [...]


    10. Trixie Belden and the Marshland Mystery is book number ten in the Trixie Belden mystery series. Trixie Belden and Honey Wheeler are best friends, horse lovers, and detectives who always seem to accidentally find a mystery waiting to be solved. In this book, a famous child violinist, Gail, runs away to an acquaintance of the Belden family's abandoned barn and puts on the acquaintance's dead sister's clothes. Her disappearance is on the front page of the news and causes a big fuss. It is up to Tri [...]


    11. When a child prodigy and her mean old aunt come to stay with the Wheelers, you can guarantee a mystery will follow. The child will be performing as a guest artist with the symphony, and believe it or not, she is so spoiled, she puts Bobby to shame!After accidentally running their botany teacher's herb collection, Trixie and Honey venture into Martin's Marsh to collect flowers and herbs to make her a new one.While Trixie and Honey are exploring, they come across a burned out house near the marsh. [...]


    12. 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 [...]


    13. Reread this to my daughter. I owned this book as a kid so I must have read it, but I remembered nothing of the plot and now I know why. This one is a bit of a disappointment, redeemed from a 2 star by the middle section when a young girl goes missing and Trixie finds her. The actual "marshland" mystery is barely a mystery at all and what could have been an exciting ending is condensed into a single paragraph of Trixie remembering something after the danger had passed. Grrr. Next up in Missing He [...]


    14. The tenth book in the Trixie Belden series. Boy, for a small town they sure have some tragic family histories. Firs the Fraynes, then the old lady living in the cottage and her family and the burnt out mansion.I enjoyed the story that went with the BWG’s latest project, and thought the injection of the spoilt little girl added a different element to the dynamics.A fun read with nothing too much to complain about.


    15. I have NO idea when I first read this book. It was not one of my favorites at the time and as I am reading it now, I do not remember much. Must be I didn't go back to it like so many of the others. :-)~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~RE-READ~12/5/2013


    16. This is not one of my favorite Trixie Beldon books, but still has some good fun with the gang. Also some compassion for another, less fortunate always enjoy the rich/poor themes running through the books.September 2013 re-read good help for a senior citizen, but not really a mystery (though it is a more believable kind of mystery for young teen-agers).


    17. A trip to the nearby marsh leads to a chance encounter with the old woman who lives there. Can Trixie and her friends help Miss Rachel? The characters are still wonderful, but I really struggle with this book because there is no real mystery.Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.


    18. Book 10. Trixie's birthday was mentioned at the beginning of the book as being only a few weeks away and I spent the whole book excited as if I was going to attend her birthday party. The joke was on me when it ended on her birthday. (I wasn't bummed though).


    19. Never one of my favorites in the series, but still a good one. The thing with this one is there's no real mystery. It says it's about Trixie seeking Captain Kidd's treasure, but she never believes that. A treasure is found but it was a small part of the story.


    20. Trixie turns 14 at the end of the story. Miss Rachel Martin gives Trix an old 'brass' box, which turns out to be solid gold. The sale of which allows Miss Martin to move to town and open a rug and quilt shop.


    21. Bland mystery in this one, though I love the spring setting and the fact that Trixie actually gets a birthday (her only one in the series). Hated the violin prodigy and her annoying poodle and found Bobby Belden's crush on her totally unbelievable.


    22. (3.9)Trixie and Honey (and the rest of the gang towards the end of the book) help a young prodigy to experience a more normal life and help an old neighbor in trouble. I hate the prodigy's dog so dang much.Recommend 9/10+ for scary situations.






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




    24. My schoolmate Peggy owned the whole series of these books, and loaned them to me one or two at a time to read in junior high school. I loved them!
