Amanda is on another adventure (see my review of “Amanda in Arabia: The Perfume Flask” HERE)! This time Amanda is in Spain with her friend, Leah and Leah’s family. In the beginning of the story they are all visiting a museum. Amanda sees a painting of a girl and she thinks the girl looks so very real. Later, Amanda actually sees the girl from the painting! Everywhere Amanda goes she sees the girl and Amanda realizes that she needs help. Amanda and Leah now get involved in a big rescue mission to help save the girl and her little pony from a mean horse dealer.
I really liked the first Amanda book - ”Amanda in Arabia”, and this book was just as awesome! The plot is very good and Amanda is a character everyone will like. I like how I learned a lot about Spain in this book because of the places Amanda goes and the people she meets. I hope I get to go to Spain someday! The cover is pretty cool too. I like the photos.The story is a great adventure and I think boys and girls would like it. I think this is a great book and a clean read except for a couple ”OMG’s”s in it. I recommend this book to kids 8+
Check out the trailer (I love the music)!
Get ready for Amanda’s NEXT adventure when she goes to England! Ms. Foster just blogged about sending “Amanda in England – The Missing Novel” to her publisher and hopefully it will be published this August!
