    Me and my sister love Jonathan, so the books in this series with him get four stars instead of three! ;) But seriously, who likes Joe anyway? He's a bit strange and why would (view spoiler)[Mandie promise him when they're so YOUNG that she'd marry him someday?! (hide spoiler)]So, Joe or Jonathan? ;)

    I'm gonna put here my review of the series in general. Grin. Chocolate cake. Remark. Foot stomp. If you have read these books, you are VERY familiar with these words. I liked this and #15, the first ones i read. Below my age group, but nice. I thought it was creative, fun to read, and i was entertained.But it was the same book after book after book. Grin. Chocolate cake. Remark. Foot stomp.The formula was Mandie meets up with friends, find a mystery, disobey, repent (but not really!) grin, chocolate cake, remark, foot stomp (do you get me now?)There were basically four types of people: Mandie, adults, friends, and others. And they were all cardboard.Let us start with Mandie. Rags to riches girl, but acts as a little rich girl. She's stubborn (which is good! REMARKS the author.)and forces her friends to accompany her. She grins, demands chocolate cake, remarks, and stomps her foot.Friends: they are loyal little minions. They follow Mandie everywhere even if they don't want to. (The boys all love Mandie too) They grin, eat chocolate cake, remark, and tolerate all foot stomping.Adults: these are just obstacles and finances. To be disobeyed and get forgiveness from, to save and get advise from. They grin and remark. Others: Props. They make chocolate cake. There you go. For the entertainment of my sick pajama muscle tank sister. EDIT: I FORGOT SNOWBALL! YOU CANNOT FORGET SNOWBALL! MANDIE WILL NOT FORGIVE YOU FORGETFULNESS OF HER NASTY LITTLE KITTEN. that was mean.

    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 preferred Joe, but Tommy's cosmopolitan airs nearly tipped the balance a time or two. I recall- fondly and as though it were yesterday- my glee when Mandie went off to Europe, my disgust at the new baby, my delight in Mandie's wardrobe of sky blue frocks, my puzzlement at all her near escapes and handy school vacations, my terror during the daring midnight adventures. Ah me, to be young and silly again...If I had written goodreads reviews at the age of eleven, all Mandie books would've received automatic five-star ratings and gushing descriptions. As an adult, I will honestly give them all three stars, except for my special pets. And if I ever have a little girl, I will buy her the entire set. Oh, and did you know there are more than forty books in the series by now? And I'm guessing Mandie never grows up, either.

    This book was really good. I could tell that since the author first began this series, she has improved a lot. She has learned more techniques that help her succeed in her writing. Although an old time story, she makes it so that her readers can still understand it and so that we can relate to it also. This author, although with us no more, has succeeded in the way she teaches her readers throughout an amazing story. These books are very intriguing, and although they are a bit easy, they are great books to read for fun and to learn a little to. This book is a critical book in the series that has a key event that will play apart in the next few books and I think that Lois introduced it astonishingly.

    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.

    Things I'm noticing ans I re-read these books:(1) Mandie is really a very, very naughty child.(2) I just find this interesting. Through the series Leppard (sub-consciously I'm sure) changes the spellings of some character's names and the gender of Mandie's cat Snowball.

    The book was so interesting that I couldn't put it down! The mysteries and adventures that Mandie seems to walk into, all the time, are just so exciting. It's really hard to stop reading.

    Cute. All the Mandie books are just very cute and suitable for little girls who like old-fashioned adventure.

    I remember loving the Mandie books when I was younger. Today I picked one up for a light read and enjoyed it for that reason.
