Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“There are two kinds of people in the world, those who read Trixie and those who don’t. Which are you?”—Merrilee Wilkerson, Book People, Austin, TX

“Parents, be warned: Nostalgic feelings may draw you in, causing a tussle over who’s going to read first.”—The Dallas Morning News

Children's Literature
Trixie Belden and her brothers, Brian and Mart, and their friends, Honey, Jim, and Di travel to Cobbett's Island for a peaceful vacation in this title, Book 13 in the Trixie Belden series. But the Bob Whites' vacation turns into a week full of excitement and suspense. They save the neighbor's caretaker when he falls and breaks his leg, they meet a boy named Peter who teaches them how to sail, they go to their first clambake, and they help Peter's mother raise money for the new library building with her tea party. But when they accidentally discover a letter written by a man who has been dead for many years, the Bob Whites realize there is a mystery here. The deceased sailor, Ed, has left $1000 to Mr. Connor, his friend, and has left him a chart for the treasure hunt. When they discover that Mr. Connor is also dead, the Bob Whites begin searching for the missing chart. Instead they find a chart that is full of confusing landmarks. When they find the money at last, they get more than they bargained for—a young boy who is holding a gun. But a happy ending ensues; they discover that Ed had a wife and son. The wife owns a successful bakery, and the son, who is studying to be a doctor, needs the money to finish his education. As always, the Bob Whites meet new friends and have fun solving a great mystery. 2005 (orig. 1964), Random House, and Ages 10 to 14.

Meet the Author

In the 1940s, Julie Campbell was running her own literary agency when Western Publishing put out a call for talented authors to write mystery series for kids. Julie proposed the Trixie Belden series and wrote the first 6 titles herself, but books 7–39 were written by a variety of writers all under the pseudonym Kathryn Kenny.

Michael Koelsch works in many different styles for many different markets, including advertising, entertainment, and publishing. He recently received a Silver Medal from the Society of Illustrators, NY.

    Trixie Rocks!

    Trixie was my favorite growing up - Nancy Drew was kind of insipid, whereas Trixie, Honey, and the others were just like the kids I was growing up with. If your kids say they don't like to read, try them on Trixie!
