E many young detectives whose adventures I followed when I was young I may not have been uite as dedicated in collecting her books as I was Nancy Drew I have all of the original hardback Drews but I was definitely on the hunt for Trixie stories when a new to me Nancy Drew mystery wasn t available Trixie whose first book was published in 1948 was in many ways a realistic character for a middle class irl to relate to I might have wanted to be Nancy with her roadster and the #ability to travel anywhere in the world at the drop of a # to travel anywhere in the world at the drop of a but it was far easier to see myself as Trixie the tomboyish irl with a uick temper I admired Trixie s determination to learn detecting as a skill so she and Honey will be able to open the Belden Wheeler Detective Agency when they are adultsRereading this particular story I m struck by how intense the danger really is I didn t remember the villains in any of the Trixie stories being so particularly nasty but this villain is discussing the ways in which he considers murdering the two irls It is uite intense for a young adultchildrens story from the time period Of course since it is a story aimed #at the pre teen crowd the irls are rescued and there are no murders but the deaths #the pre teen crowd the irls are rescued and there are no murders but the deaths contemplates for them are very unpleasant I was also struck by the way Honey disagrees with Trixie over whether another person is involved with the plot It s my recollection that Honey is very loyal to Trixie and her hunches and instincts about people This time Honey s insistence that she knows people pretty well and I d trust her with anything She s so motherly leads the irls into the trap that comes near to ending their detective careersStill this was a very entertaining read and it was fun to
