School is back in session, and if you think that will slow Trixie down at all, you're wrong :) Honey mentions that one of their classmates, pretty Di Lynch (she's always "pretty Di". Never forget that she's the prettiest) seems awfully sad and suggests they invite her over and make her a Bob-White. Seems a bit sudden to me, since they barely know the girl, but all right. Di is miserable with her parents' new wealth and her mom's long lost brother, Uncle Monty, is being a real pain. She wants to throw a fun, simple Halloween party but Monty gets involved and turns it into a big catered affair with a band and everything. Thanks to the rest of the Bob-Whites, the party isn't a complete catastrophe, but Trixie is convinced Uncle Monty is an impostor. Turns out she was right, and gets her and Mart nearly kidnapped for their troubles. All's well that ends well, and as a reward Mr. Lynch gives them the red trailer from book 2, the Robin. The Bob-Whites give it to Tom, the Wheeler's chauffeur, and Celia, the Wheeler's maid, who are getting married and wanted the gatehouse. Now that Tom and Celia have the trailer, the Bob-Whites can keep their clubhouse. At least until the next big windstorm :) ( )

Is the long lost Uncle who he says he is or is Trixie right, he is a fraud.
A nice story. Trixie comes across as kind of pushy. ( )

A childhood favorite re-visited.

Is the story as good as I remember? – Yes

What ages would I recommend it too? – Ten and up.

Length? – Most of a day’s read.

Characters? – Memorable, several characters.

Setting? – Real world - pre internet, computers, air conditioning, and cell phones.

Written approximately? – 1948.

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 the time frame of the story - as the teens are given far more freedom to come and go as they please than would be safe today. Also, the absence of computers, cell phones, and air conditioning, particularly in homes such as the mansion.

Short storyline: Trixie Belden and Honey solve the mystery of who the false Uncle Monty of friend Diana is.

Notes for the reader: A great mystery! No violence (only referred to from the past), no murder. This one is a bit heavier as it involves more action, a gun, and a kidnapping. ( )

Oh, how I do love Trixie Belden :) ( )

I liked this one considerably less than the first three. Everyone was so annoyingly self-deprecating here, saying they were not bright or not pretty or not adequate or not good at math. Most of this was couched as politeness, but it still really got up my nose. I loathed Di, the whiny, needy, obnoxious little git. I need a break from the Bob-Whites. ( )
