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.

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 love this book because Mandie disobeys her mother and goes into danger with her friend,Joe, but than good comes out of it because when they become kidnapped the people who were stealing from the ruby mine became Christians!! ( Read the Rest,it's the Best! )

Mandie was wondering around an old house and found a brand-new ball gown on the wall. Only to find later that it had disapeared.

Mandie's mysteries have been good, though maybe a little to much the same?
