Audio Versions

German audio tapes

The first ten German Trixie books were released by Europa in audio cassette as the books were being released in the early to mid-1970s.

Additionally, these were all released on vinyl as well, also by Europa.  The covers are very similar to the cassettes.  You can find information about the LPs by visiting the Europa-vinyl site.

Schneider Ton (an affiliated company of Schneider Buch) also released audio cassettes of the first ten books.
