    1 thought on “The Mystery on Cobbett's Island

    1. Usually vies with "Gatehouse" for that #1 spot in the series. Love, love, love the island setting, the sailing, the clam bake, and the treasure hunt type mystery. And the moment near the beginning that always makes me laugh with Mart "rolling up his pants so he doesn't get wet" when going out into the storm. It reminds me of my Gramps. :)2012 Review: This one only could've been better if Dan had gotten to go along. I loved the camaraderie of the Bob-Whites, even Mart's constant teasing wasn't ov [...]

    2. The Bobwhites are off again on another adventure, this time to Cobbett's Island, where they learn about sailing and island life, and this was not only the Bobwhites introduction to Clam Bakes, but also mine. Ever since I was little I have wanted to live on the East Coast, but I don't know why or when this fascination started. I am starting to wonder now if it was island life and clam bakes from this book that fueled this interest.The crime in this book is more minor than most books, the Bobwhite [...]

    3. Another trip for the Bob Whites! They go visit some island and solve a mystery, big surprise. Trixie buys a new blue bathing suit and Jim comments on its color! He LOOKED at her body in a bathing suit -- that's about as sexually explicit as the Trixies ever get. If you want more than that, you have to head for the fanfiction. (Speaking of which, it's hilarious the need the Trixie fanfic authors have to pair everyone up -- and since Dan didn't have a designated Bob White girlfriend (other than Ha [...]

    4. Okay. So I didn't really like this book. First of all, the mystery. I've never been a fan of treasure-hunt type mysteries. Like, ever. I just think they're boring and cliche. Come up with something different, please. The part about Slim was good, though. It was funny imagining Jim swaggering up and going "Yeah, Trixie's the boss of this gang." Haha! I also didn't like how there were so many parts just about sailing. Okay, yeah, I like sailboats, but I'm reading this book for enjoyment, not to le [...]

    5. I do not remember the first time I read this book. I had to do extra chores and such around the house to be able to "earn" these books, or the money to BUY them. I was always sad when I could only afford one because I DEVOURED these!! Looking forward to re-reading this now!~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~RE-READ~ December 14, 2013FUN re-read. I enjoyed this one a lot. Lots of neat stuff about sailing and a grand adventure fo [...]

    6. The BWotG (minus Dan. AGAIN *angry face*) are vacationing at the beach when Trixie finds a letter. This isn't one of the best/strongest stories, but it does have an actual mystery, Trixie and Jim going undercover for an hour, and lots of sailing.Recommended 10/11+ for scary situations.

    7. Book 13. Another book minus Dan but Trixie seems so much older in this one. At the time I thought it was just maturity after a trip to NY haha. She and Jim start to "notice" each other in this book and I remember my loyalties swaying a bit from Dan to Jim at the book's end *gasp*.

    8. 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 [...]

    9. These were my favorite childhood books, I still collect them as I adored them so much. When I was younger I thought that just Julie Campbell and Kathryn Kenny were the authors. It wasn't until I was in my 20s and really dug into the history of this series that I learned that the KK name was a pseudonym for the publishing company and that multiple people completed the series.Now that I know that and I'm re-reading these, it was most evident (so far) on this book. It wasn't right and it was not on [...]

    10. 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? – 1964.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 [...]

    11. "When the Bob-Whites arrive on Cobbett’s Island for vacation, Trixie finds a mysterious letter. Many years ago, a fortune was hidden. But the clues in the letter are hard for Trixie to understand. What does “start sailing” mean? Is this a treasure hunt on land . . . or on sea?"Honey and Jim have invited the Bob-Whites to a vacation on Cobbett's Island. When Trixie announces she just wants to relax, none of her friends believe her - Trixie relax? Yeah, right! The gang arrives on Cobbett's I [...]

    12. Trixie Belden and the Mystery on Cobbett's Island is book number thirteen 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, Trixie and Honey find a treasure map that has almost undecipherable sentences and illustrations on it. In her search for the treasure, Trixie goes on a boat ride and sees that all of the light bulbs on the buoys are smashed. Sh [...]

    13. The Bob-Whites go to Cobbett's Island thanks to Honey's family, and while there, they uncover a mysterious letter, make friends with a boy who teaches them to sail, find a long lost treasure and help a young man attain his dreaml in a weeks work for the Bob-Whites of the Glen. Trixie for once manages to avoid getting into too many scrapes on her own, and doesn't go off on as much of a 'gumshoe detective' mission as usual. As much as I love the Trixie Belden series, the adventures can sometimes s [...]

    14. This book is amazing, as all of the Trixie Belden books are. Again, Trixie, Honey and all of their friends try their hardest to solve another mystery. The mystery on Cobbett's Island starts when Trixie finds a message hidden in an old book while the Bob-Whites of the Glen are on holiday. With the help of a new friend, they try their best to solve the mystery that the message unfolds while helping many others along the way.The book did get a little boring int the middle, but I guess all books do. [...]

    15. 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 [...]

    16. The gang (except for poor Dan, as Trixie puts it, "Oh, jeepers! What's wrong? He's our newest member and it's not fair for him to miss out on the fun again") heads for the Wheelers' vacation home on Cobbett's Island for some fun by the sea. While browsing through some books, they discover an old letter that indicates somewhere hidden is a chart that will lead to a small fortune meant for someone called "little Ed".

    17. Trixie isn't looking for a mystery when she and her friends head to Cobbett's Island. However, their first night there, they find a letter that suggests there is a treasure nearby. With their new friend Peter, can they find it? This is my second favorite book in the series. The characters are wonderful and the plot is very well done.Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.

    18. This was a fun book, and gave an introduction to sailing. Of course, it made Trixie and her friends out to be some kind of superheroes, as always, but that's what was fun about these books when I was a kid. Sept 2013 another fun re-read lessons about sailing, kids helping others, all combine to make this a fun book.

    19. The thirteenth book in the Trixie Belden series. This was probably their most enjoyable “out of town” adventure to date. There was a good cast of additional characters and a cracker little mystery to go along with it.It had its usual “everyone making fun of Trixie” stuff, but aside from that this was thoroughly fun reading.

    20. Ha! Found this at Powell's in Portland and was sure it was one I didn't have. I have been slowly replacing these since I lost all my books from childhood in a house fire. This is so very wholesome, but they do encounter a rebel teenager with a gun in the end. Luckily Trixie outwits him and they get the gun away. Nice work Trixie!

    21. I read all of the Trixie Belden mysteries many times as a child, but I didn't remember The Mystery on Cobbett's Island as well as some of the others. I was therefore pleasantly surprised when I recently re-read it to find it a really solid Trixie Belden with a well-done plot and many of the best elements that make me love these books.

    22. I read so many Trixie Belden books when I was in middle school. It was so much fun to read this one (again, I assume, though I didn't have any memory of the plot) as an adult. The mystery was pretty well done, and the characters, while not super complex, are endearing. I think I will have to pick up a couple more from the series to enjoy.

    23. The Bob White's are visiting Cobbett's Island on vacation, they are planning on sailing, clambakes, swimming and lots of fun, but Trixie finds a mystery involving cash hidden away years ago. Trixie engages the Bob White's in the search for the money, along with new friend Peter.

    24. I did not WANT to learn about sailing. But that was a good part about how Trixie and Jim have to dress up in bad-girl/bad-boy drag in order to have a date that doesn't include everyone else. Also the part where Honey has a questionable dream about Brian.

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

    26. 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!
