Why I Love ... Wednesdays is a meme hosted by Alexis over at reflections of a bookaholic. Each Wednesday is an opportunity to explore a different aspect of literature and why I love it. Today's topic: Childhood Book Friend
Just seeing this cover makes me shiver still. "the Black Jacket Mystery" was really scary! I can feel the butterflies in my tummy. But Trixie was always able to come out on top and save the day.
Trixie lived on Crabapple farm - with horses! And a best friend named Honey. And they had a club called the Bob-Whites. And they solved mysteries. What was there for a young city girl not to like?
It's because of what I learned from Trixie that I always hold tight to my purse when I am in a crowd. I used to dream I was her. She even had a cool name! Sadly, none of my daughters were ever interested in reading these books. But I still have them. Maybe one day I'll have grand-daughters who will share my Trixie-love.
Has anyone else out there ever heard of these books? I may have just totally dated myself but I've heard the books are being re-released. So I could be younger than you think.
Have a great Wednesday!
