TRIXIE BELDEN AND THE HAPPY VALLEY MYSTERY, #9.
Edition: First edition. Glossy or cellophane binding.
Racine, WI: Whitman, (1962.). Hardcover first edition - While not as well known as Nancy Drew, this is many girls' favorite series: Trixie is a real 13 year old girl, with chores, school to attend, a little brother to babysit - but lots of adventures! In the fragile "cello" binding, plaid endpapers. Illustrated by Paul Frame. 282 pp.
Condition: Very good (usual toning to the pages, just a bit of wear to the corners and top of spine) Uncommon in the first edition, especially in this condition.
