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
I admit, I read this book in elementary school, so I really don't remember anything about it anymore except that I absolutely loved it!
Mandie and her Europe-traveling friends/family are visiting Baroness Geissler's castle in Germany. From one baffling incident to another, no one can quite figure out what's going on.

I quite enjoyed reading this book--What with the secret of that jumping tree, and why the Baroness's son acts so rudely towards Mandie and her friends, plus a surprise visit from that mysterious lady who was on the Queen Victoria ship, who keeps stalking Mandie.

This is recommended for all Christian & Mystery Book
If I was going to skip a book in this series it would be this one. It's not inappropriate but I would read it before I let a child under my care read it. (It deals with an engaged man who is having secret meetings with another woman).
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.
The theory behind the Jumping Juniper was good, but the overall plot itself was just silly. It seamed that Lois Gladys Leppard got writers block and didn't know what to write about.
