Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

When the Bob-Whites arrive on Cobbett's Island for vacation, Trixie finds a mysterious letter. Many years ago, a fortune was hidden. But the clues in the letter are hard for Trixie to understand. What does "start sailing" mean? Is this a treasure hunt on land . . . or on sea?

Horn Book Review

Trixie fans will rejoice over this reissue of the thirteenth title in the long-out-of-print series, which uses the original text and line drawings. The plot is 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.
