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 plus 2 pp publisher's ads (lists to #10 at back - both 9 and 10 were issued in 1962)
Condition: Near fine (usual toning to the pages, binding beginning to crack between p 24-25, but still straight and sturdy - better condition than usual for this binding.)
