BOOK REVIEW

THE MYSTERY AT BOB-WHITE CAVE
TRIXIE BELDEN #11 - KATHRYN KENNY

Trixie just couldn't wait for the rain to stop.  Why?  She and her friends were at her Uncle Andrew's fishing lodge in the Ozark Mountains.  Trixie and her friends had a club called "The Bob-Whites.  They liked working on special projects to try and help where needed.

Trixie picked up a magazine and started to read an article that caught her eye.  It was an article about a certain type of fish found in underground caves.  The fish were trapped by shifting earth and couldn't escape to the outside.  It was dark inside and through many generations their eyes became mounds of flesh, then disappeared.  The article went on to state that scientists wanted to do an extensive study of these fish to determine the effect of the environment on blindness and how nature can help the animals adjust to blindness.  What really caught Trixie's eye was the fact that the magazine was willing to pay $500 for live specimens of cave fish.

Mrs. Moore, Andrew's housekeeper, warned Trixie that exploring caves could be very dangerous.  She also stated that some caves have sinkholes in them.  She told Trixie to wait and discuss this with her uncle.

As soon as the weather improved, Trixie and her friends were on their way to find the cavefish.  Do they succeed?  Are they in danger?

If you have read any of the Trixie Belden books, we know that she is determined when she wants to do something.  This book is no different.  It is a very entertaining book for young readers 8-12 (I, as an adult, enjoyed it also).  Trixie Belden books are always loaded with a kind of suspense that will keep the reader interested.  Any young reader who is a fan of mystery and suspense will love this book.  It is highly recommended.
