    One thought on “Trixie Belden And The Mystery Of The Phantom Grasshopper”

    1. Growing up, I loved reading these books! I liked Trixie Belden much better than the Nancy Drew mysteries, probably because I could relate more easily to Trixie and her friends. The cases they worked on seemed more realistic, and they didn't have an endless supply of money and cars at their disposal to chase after the villains. :) This is a really fun series. The books were out of print for a long time, but I heard that they've released a new edition of most of the books. I'm excited to start col [...]

    2. This is one of my favorites in the series. Partly because it takes place in Sleepyside, but also because I enjoy the lore over Hoppya copper grasshopper weather vane over town hall. This book has a lot of sweet elements in it and is just a good, fun, read.

    3. Of the three Trixie Belden books I read over the past couple of days, this was by far my favorite and -- in my opinion -- the best written of the three.

    4. 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 [...]

    5.

Yes. A slight mention of the time frame of the story - as th [...]

    6. I really did enjoy this book, none of the Kathryn Kenney books have quite gotten five stars from me yet, though. The mystery really was there, and that was the entire focus of the book. I'm glad the mystery was enjoyable for me, even if it was a bit of a strange plot. And Trixie has this sudden obsession with a metal grasshopper sitting on top of town hall - I found that a little weird, but whatever. Four stars out of five. I would read this book again! (And I have actually this is my second tim [...]

    7. 10/2/12: I needed a quick read before picking up a new book that comes out today and a Trixie always fits the bill for that. I picked this one due to its autumn setting. I enjoy the characterizations in this one. All the BWGs working together, Mart and Trixie not bickering but still getting in good-natured jibes at one another, and Trixie and Bobby's relationship is sweet, too. The mystery is pretty good, although the way the BWG's suddenly figured out the songs on the radio signal clue was a li [...]

    8. If I am looking around for a fun, comfort read, there is none better than the Trixie Belden series. In this story the town hall weather vane, Hoppy the Grasshopper, is stolen and it is up to Trixie and her friends to solve the mystery. What I learned from reading this story is that weather vanes were popular in the northeastern part of the United States and to be on the lookout for them on programs such as Antiques Roadshow as examples of folk art. Trixie is back with her best friend Honey and h [...]

    9. When a violent storm blows through Sleepyside, the antique weather vane vanishes, and Trixie Belden sets out to find it and bring it home. Lots of fun with great characters, although the mystery is a bit straight forward.Read my full review at Carstairs Considers.

    10. 10/21/10-10/22/10: Oh, I can't say it enough. I love Trixie Belden!! As I'm reading these, Bobby seems to be taking on a bigger role, probably because he's getting older. He was very important to the mystery in this one and the one before it. Of course Trixie solved the case, but as to how, I'm going to let you figure that out.

    11. Although the description of this book makes it sound ridiculous, Trixie and the Bobwhites are actually looking for an antique grasshopper shaped weather vane. It's not a bad addition to the Trixie Belden Series at all.

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

    13. Bobby Belden is paramount in this plot! woo hoo! baby Belden. He is an adorable character and it is nice to see him growing up.

    14. A solid trixie, though having something new in town (never mentioned before in any 17 previous books) was rather odd. But I guess they do what ideas they could.
