    1. Pierre Lontard is one of the scariest bad guys in the series. I remember he scared me as a kid. Now I love the danger! Trixie foils international gun runners in this one. I always liked the map and the "decrypting" of it by Trixie and Honey.2012 Review:And wrapping it up with #15-Mystery on the Mississippi. Another one I like because Dan gets to go, although Di gets left behind this time. I enjoyed this one because it was really scary, big-time mystery with Trixie and Honey (however illogical it [...]

    2. Trixie and the Bob-White gang are off again, to Mississippi this time. They encounter a very bad guy who actually talks about doing serious harm to Trixie and Honey. Throughout the series Honey and Trixie find themselves in serious danger, and this is one of those times. They help to uncover a major smuggling ring this time, but when they aren't involved in that they do get to see historical Mississippi and track down several locales from Mark Twain's Tom Sawyer and Huck Finn. This isn't one of [...]

    3. a HUGE and most dedicated fan of Trixie and her crew. This is odd, of course, because they were MEANT for teen and pre-teen girls, but I was a young boy that read everything he could get his hands on and when I first stumbled on my first TRIXIE BELDON book I was instantly hooked! I immediately sat about reading them all, as quickly as I could get my greedy little paws on them. Trixie is the star, or "lead" character, followed by Jim and Honey (who quickly became the love of my young life, I had [...]

    4. Wow, this book took me, what, a week to get through? I didn't enjoy it that much, so that's probably the reason why. ;) I've also been very busy as far as Easter so I haven't been reading a lot lately. Hopefully that will change soon! Onto the review. I've noticed this is the fourth vacation in a row the Bob-Whites have taken so far. When your best friends are rich I guess you can really go places. So this one was a bit boring. There was a sterotypical evil person named Lontard which is actually [...]

    5. A childhood favorite re-visited.Is the story as good as I remember? – YesWhat ages would I recommend it too? – Ten and up.Length? – Most of a day’s read.Characters? – Memorable, several characters.Setting? – Real world, pre - computer pre - air conditioning, pre - cell phone.Written approximately? – 1965.Does the story leave questions in the readers mind? – Ready to read more.Any issues the author (or a more recent publisher) should cover? Yes. A slight mention of the time frame [...]

    6. Trixie and her friends take a trip to Missouri, where Trixie finds some stranger papers in her hotel room's garbage can. Soon, someone is following them. What do the symbols on the paper mean?I'm torn on this one. It was my introduction to the series, so it will always hold a special place in my heart. The fast moving and suspenseful plot captivated the 7th grade me and introduced me to life long friends. However, reading it as an adult, boy to all the characters do some pretty stupid things.Rea [...]

    7. There's an actual mystery! There's real consequences to the mystery! It makes sense! And the best part? Dan FINALLY gets to go on a trip.This was one of my favorite books as a 10-12 year old, and it's my favorite Trixie Belden mystery.Recommended 11+ for scary situations.

    8. Good book hard to see Trixie get out of one jam just to place herself in peril yet again I don't think she's really all that dumb! However the gang has another great adventure, with some nice descriptions of some of the things they saw in the St. Louis area.

    9. Trixie Belden and the Mystery on the Mississippi is book number fifteen in the Trixie Belden mystery series. Trixie Belden and Honey Wheeler are best friends, horse lovers, and detectives who always seem to accidentally find a mystery waiting to be solved. In this book, the club is traveling to Saint Louis on a steamboat on the Mississippi River. Trixie finds some important papers in their hotel room before they get on the boat. She takes them with her, even though she thinks they are of no impo [...]

    10. This was a very good addition to the Trixie Belden series. The Bobwhites are on plain mystery free vacation in St. Louisah right. It started out innocently enough, until Trixie discovers some suspicious papers in the wastebasket of her motel room and soon the Bobwhites are pursued by the owners of those papers. I like the fact that this book is set on the Mississippi and they travel on a boat down the river. They also visit Hannibal, Missouri, the home of Tom Sawyer!There was only one part of th [...]

    11. For Christmas one year, my parents grabbed me the entire Trixie Belden set and I couldn't put them down. After I finished with them, they continued to purchase them as quickly as I could read them. Even with a learning disability, I devoured the books. I look back now and I find that Trixie Belden was much more age related to young girls, particularly to me, reading the books than Nancy Drew. There was something in these books that I found to be a greater escape than I did ND, too. I found that [...]

    12. There was a tertiary character in this book that caught my interest and I wanted to know more about him -- the elusive Mr. Brandio. Purported to be a business colleague of Matthew Wheeler's, he sets in motion the trip for the Bob-Whites and pops up throughout the book. However, there is absolutely no detail about the man -- no description, no first name, nothing other than he's apparently a big wig in the Aircraft/Space Craft World and President of Clear Meadow Aircraft Corporation. All very mys [...]

    13. This book by Kathryn Kenny, is exciting and has drops of drama added in. *Spoiler* Trixie was correct on who she thought was doing this or that and also on judging people *Spoiler over* Which because of what Trixie Thought of this person of that one, I took a second look at their personality and ask myself, could they have done it? Being book 15 in the series, I've read the other books, and Kathryn does a good job of changing the conflict and how it's solved, Which makes each stories of hers dif [...]

    14. The fifteenth book in the Trixie Belden series. I felt that this particular mystery was “too big” for Trixie. There was a LOT going on in this one, and the ending really had me feeling that Trixie was well and truly out of her depth in this one.In fact, there was probably too much going on in this one. I did like the travel around the Mississippi area, and some of the historical stuff around it, that was quite interesting. I just didn’t overly enjoy the mystery in this one.

    15. Not my favorite Trixie by far. Took me almost a month to read this short book because I kept getting annoyed with the characters - Trixie acting clueless, Mart being exceptionally obtuse, and Dan - Dan! - being the voice of reason. Plus, throw in the Secret Service just to trash any chance of plausibility and I almost didn't finish it. Fortunately, this one has been the exception - so far, the others in the series have been as enjoyable as I remember from when I was a kid.

    16. This is the last of the three Trixie Belden books, and the only one that's written by "Kathryn Kenny". I much prefer the original author, Julie Campbell. Her style is much more pleasant and easy to read. Whoever was writing under the pseudonym "Kathryn Kenny" didn't understand the spirit and the essence of Trixie Belden and the rest of the group at all.

    17. That's right. No stars. This book should be retitled "Trixie Belden and the Creepy Cold War Propaganda Mystery." Trixie comes across as a stubborn, dim, kittenish brat. This is an infuriatingly bad book, that is irredeemably racist, sexist, corny and at times just inexplicable. Other books I loved as a child reward adult rereading, but not this one.

    18. Sept 2013 not one of my favorites, perhaps because of the way Trixie goes off with someone, knowing full well she should not, and gets into way more trouble than is imaginable. Still, lots of good geography lessons about the Mississippi River and surrounding areas, and lots of fun, and the crew that we've come to love throughout the series.

    19. One of my least favorites. There was a lot of bickering in this on, people not believing her but her also making a lot of stupid decisions. Whoever wrote this decided to make Trixie more of an idiot, tensions between the lot of them and just a jumbled mess really. Not too enjoyable.

    20. This wasn't one of the better written Trixies sad to say. It seemed that there were a few too many instances of things happening conveniently to propel the storyline. But I do love the danger. It was one of the few Trixies to more accurately portray the consequences of your actions.

    21. My schoolmate Peggy owned the whole series of these books, and loaned them to me one or two at a time to read in junior high school. I loved them!

    22. Again, go home Bob Whites! However, I am a sucker for graph paper; so I like the drawings the girls find in their hotel room.

    23. Trixie foils spies! Or was it counterfeiters? Gun runners? I forget. However, the gang takes a nice trip on the Mississippi River, and as usual, Trixie and Honey end up in MORTAL PERIL.

    24. Trixie Belden was one of my earliest great media obsessions. I absolutely adored all of the books and desperately wanted to be Trixie.

    25. I read most of these as a kid and still have some in storage. I loved them then.a little too young for me now but they are still a good read
