Horn Book Review

Trixie fans will rejoice over these reissues of the tenth, eleventh, and twelfth 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. (c) Copyright 2010. The Horn Book, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
