A new Trixie Belden fan!

I just finished this first Trixie Belden adventure and enjoyed it thoroughly. Somehow I missed these while growing up, but am going to catch up real soon as Audible releases more of the series. The narrator is wonderful, the characters believable and likeable. For a book obviously set in the 1940s, it's timeless...a great story of youngsters spending their summer having fun in the outdoors. No video games or shopping malls here! A great listen for a 47 year old as well as pre-teeners. Would make a wonderful vacation trip listen for a family. Thank you Audible for obtaining these!

My son and my daughter both loved this!

I have (almost) 8 year old twins, a boy and a girl. We listened to this book in the car over spring break and it was darling! It had adventure, and intrigue which kept them both hanging on every word. But what I really liked was the "folksy" way the book was written with values that seem to have fallen to the wayside in this day and age. I think the copywright was from 1950 but my children didn't even notice it was 60 years old! From a parent perspective it was truly refreshing to listen to a wholesome book. This was a nice treat and we'll keep listening to the Trixie Belden series.
