Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Uncle Andrew needs Trixie's help. Trixie and the Bob-Whites are spending spring break at his farm in Iowa, and his sheep keep disappearing. He thinks they're being stolen! Trixie may not know sheep, but she does know thieves. And she has an idea where to start looking for them-near the mysterious flickering lights in dark, dangerous Walnut Woods! "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 "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 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.

Horn Book Review

Trixie fans will rejoice over these reissues of the seventh, eighth, and ninth titles in the long-out-of-print series, which use the original text and line drawings that place the books' action firmly in the late forties and early fifties. The plots are formulaic, but impulsive, good-hearted Trixie has an irresistible appeal.
