I admit it: I am reviewing these books years after reading them. However, do not even suggest that I'm no longer qualified, that too many years have passed to remember. My battered and faded copies of these books testify to how many times I read them growing up and plots and entire passages are seared in my memory forever.

Snowball always ran away, Mandie always got in trouble, Uncle Ned always rescued her, and Joe and Tommy bristled at each other. I myself prefered Joe, but Tommy's cosmopolitan

Mandie's adventures were always a pleasure to preteen me. I doubt I'd enjoy them now, but I devoured them then! If you're out of high school and/or you enjoy reading classic literature, Mandie is probably not for you. However, if you're between the ages of ten and fifteen, and haven't touched an Austen or a Dickens, you just might have some fun with Mandie, her cat, and all of their friends!

Okay so I wasn't very pleased with this book and I'm so glad I bought it as a Goodwill and only paid fifty cents for it. The book was boring until the last chapter which is the one that gave it the second star. Without that chapter it would be a one star book.

The book starts off with Mandie and Celia having to solve the mystery of why the bells at the church are ringing the wrong number of times. Most of the locals think it is a bad omen especially when the flu breaks out and a big snowstorm com

This book was pretty good, but in my opinion, not the best in the series. I appreciate how this book had some action, but on the other hand, I didn't really like the beginning because it wasn't that intriguing for me. Once I got more towards the middle though, things became more interesting. More action happened and more characters came in and that caused the book to have a more exciting plot as you find out the importance of the characters. The story unveils itself more towards the end, which c ...more

The Mandie books are fun Christian mysteries for children, but I still love reading them. Even though she doesn't age very quickly and seems to get far too many breaks from school during the year, she's a lot of fun.
