While Ben and I were shopping at our favorite thrift store I spotted a few books from the Trixie Belden Series. This brought back memories of sharing a bedroom with Regina, she was an avid Trixie Belden reader and had quite a few of her books.
I texted my sister and told her of my find. Yes, it is so much easier to text than to call. We then had a short debate on the merits of Nancy Drew vs Trixie Belden and who is the better female sleuth.
Spiffy pants suits
to quote my sister..
"Trixie had a red head boyfriend and work jeans and t-shirts. Clearly the superior sleuth.
Here is what I have against Trixie. First off the name alone. Trixie. Obviously her parents did not love her enough to give her a real name. Instead they named her after their Cocker Spaniel. Secondly, you cannot get taken seriously as a sleuth dressing as a slob, just look at Columbo. No one ever took him seriously. And last of all no one messes with Nancy. Don't let the pantsuits fool you. She is one tough chick.
So I ask you, dear reader, who is the best sleuth?
