Mystery Quiz Books
There were also two Trixie Belden Mystery Quiz books published. These were a lot of fun, though the puzzles and quizzes are not really Trixie related except in the intros. My favorite parts were the minute mysteries, the cartoon mysteries, and the short story in each book.

An excerpt from the short story The Case of Two Winners:
>Trixie took a deep breath and stepped out to look at the car's license plate: E37-142.
I knew it! Now if I can just get a look at the right fender...Trixie was halfway to the car, when a figure suddenly stood up on the other side. It was Jay Miller, a can of spray paint in his hand and a look of pure rage in his eyes.
"What are you doing here?" he roared. He came toward her threateningly.
I can't leave now, Trixie thought, not until I know...She ran forward and around Jay. His arm swung up, and a white mist exploded from the paint can.
"I'll get you, you little snoop," he bellowed.<
Here's one of the cartoon mysteries--due to a need to conserve space, it may be difficult to read all of it.
