This was fun, if melodramatic. I loved Mrs. Smith, of course. And Miss Trask, slacker governess who can't even cook. Who wouldn't like Miss Trask?

The bad guys were satisfyingly bad without being terrifying, the parents mystifying but unimportant, and the story hummed along at a nice pace. ( )

Someone on my LJ FL was forever raving about Trixie Belden, so I thought I'd give it a try. And now I know.

Come to think of it, the same person threw a hissy fit and flounced off my LJ, so I needn't have bothered. Eh. Live and learn. ( )

Red Trailer picks up directly where Secret in the Mansion leaves off. Trixie and Honey go on the road in an airstream trailer searching for Jim who thinks he is in trouble and doesn't know that he has inherited lots of money. The excitement of this book hold up to the test of time. A fun read. ( )

The best part about this book is that it continues on from where the first book in the series ended. The latter books in the series are stand alone.
Great book to read during the summer. ( )

I give the series five stars, based on my love for the books when I first read them (in the late fifties). I was a "tomboy", and they appealed to me much more than the Nancy Drew books. Also I grew up living not far from their setting, so they seemed more real to me. I'm afraid to revisit them now. ( )
