From the Inside Flap
The Bob-Whites are off to the Ozarks to spend some time with the Beldens' Uncle Andrew. Trixie can't wait to explore some dark, damp, and most of all, mysterious caves, because she has another scheme up her sleeve. A national magazine is offering a reward to anyone who can find three "ghost cave fish." Nothing will stop Trixie from finding them—not bats or wild cats or even a real ghost!

This book always raises a wishy-washy response to me. I thought a mystery surrounding a cave would be cool as a kid, so I had high hopes. The story starts off rather slowly, with lots of talk about ghosts that doesn't seem to lead anywhere. Frankly, this makes the locals come off as stereotypically superstitious, which does bug me for some reason. Trixie and Honey seem to have reverted to their personalities from the beginning of book one, and they're just as annoying now as they were then.
However, the story picks up in the second half of the book. I would still call the plot an adventure with mystery elements, but it really begins to move and is actually quite fun.
This isn't the strongest entry in the series, but is rather fun over all. It's still a thrill to see Random House re-releasing these books and keeping them just as I remember them from 20 years ago.
This particular book happens to be one of my favorites. Trixie, Jim, Honey, Brian, and Mart journey to the Ozark mountains to stay with the Belden's Uncle Andrew (The Happy Valley Mystery). While there, they learn how to spelunk, catch a thief, and of course do something to help the less fortunate. 5 stars and a definite must-read for Bob-White fans.
