The Mandie Collection, Volume 1 Reviews

    I read the Mandie Books while in 5th and 6th grade. Mandie is a strong, independent girl with a series of friends and family who solves mysteries. I would liken her to Nancy Drew but with more heart. The stories also seek to have a moral or value to be learned. Her inquistive cat Snowball, best friends Celia and Jonathan make the stories that much ore interesting...Having said how much I enjoyed these stories as a child, I must say that trying to reread them as an adult was a mistake. The dialogue and situations are clearly meant only for the enjoyment of younger readers and I was mildy offended by Uncle Cal's character of the "Negro man"...very reminiscent of Uncle Remus and the racism that exists within that world.

    I loved the Mandie series when I was a little girl. I found this collection of the first few books when I was at the library, so I picked it up for nostalgia. I was a little sad that I did, though, because it wasn't nearly as good as I remembered it being! There was so much cliche and it was over the top silly and impractical in some places. I can't enjoy it anymore. But, I suppose it's not meant for readers over 12 or 13, is it? Still, since I loved the stories so much once upon a time, I'll give it an "I liked it" vote!

    I have the first 25 volumes of this series and highly recommend it to any young christian girl who thirsts for adventure. As a warning...I did get bored because Mandie wasn't growing up as fast as I was (they were new when I was a kid). Mainly for tween readers.

    Every girl should read this series. Especially, every Christian girl. When I was younger, I adored this series. It's right up there with Laura Ingles Wilder's classic series: Little House on the Prairie.

    While I enjoyed them as a child I found these books to be dated in their terminology for instance referring to a deaf and mute girl found in an attic as "retarded." I also found them to be unnecessarily melodramatic.

    Lovely!Give fascinating stories for girls, full of adventure and fun but also about learning to trust God in every situation. I recommend them highly! (I'm 70, and I loved them!)

    I would rate this book 3.5 if I could. My favourite two books of this collection are: 'Mandie and the Forbidden Attic' and 'Mandie and the Trunk's Secret;' both of them are when she is in the school.

    3.5 starsGood, fun and endearing stories. I read them as a girl, and no doubt my future daughters will read them too.I was disappointed that the edition I had contained at least four typos, but that is the only downside :)

    A great series for kids nine to twelve. It gets kind of boring around the sixth book, but I think it's cool how long the series lasts. Great stories Leppard!
