I nice little mystery. I figured out somethings before Trixie & Honey, but they are just kids. ( )

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 search for Jim, who has disappeared to escape an evil stepfather.

Notes for the reader: A great mystery! No violence (only referred to from the past), no murder. ( )

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. ( )
