Trixie Belden Miscellaneous

Trixie Belden was first published in 1948. She lives on a country road with her three brothers, her mom and dad, and her frisky Irish-Setter dog Reddy. Just down the road from her lives Honey Wheeler and her adopted brother Jim Frayne. Honey is 13, like Trixie, and loves to ride horses with her best friends. Diana Lynch lives just up the road with her four little brothers and sisters and her parents. Di is 13, too. In the Wheeler’s game preserve lives Mr. Maypenny, who patrols the game preserve. He likes to help all the kids on Glen Road.

All of the kids have started a ‘secret’ club; The Bob-Whites. They’re mission is to help whoever they can and all treat each other as brother and sister.
