by Darlene Foster

118 pages – ages 8+

Published by Central Avenue Publishing on August 6, 2012

Amanda is going on another adventure! This time she is visiting her friend Leah in England. Amanda is having a great time seeing all there is to see in London! While Amanda was visiting a castle in England, she notices a boy running away with a book under his arm. Amanda learns that the book is a rare novel that was stolen! Amanda is determined to find the book, find out why it was stolen and return it. With the help of Leah and a new friend Rylee, Amanda goes off on another adventure around the great country of England.

I am a fan of the Amanda series (see my reviews of Amanda in Spain HERE and Amanda in Arabia HERE) and I think this book was another great adventure! The action in the book is great. Ms. Foster writes very exciting books that are good for all ages to read. I really liked learning about London from this book. I think that’s what I like the most about the Amanda series, you learn about the location the book takes place in. The Amanda character is a great heroine and I think boys as well as girls will really like her. Amanda is a modern girl who a lot of kids can relate to. I can’t wait to read the next adventure Amanda goes on!

    Amanda sounds like the modern day Nancy Drew but all over the world. Mom was Nancy Drew’s #1 fan. Is Nancy Drew a dog…..?

    Love and licks,

    All three of Darlene’s novels are on my summer reading list. I love the video. And I felt right at home, lol–I’ve spent lots of time this winter researching and writing scenes that take place in London and Southampton.

    Great review Erik. It also made me remember my Nancy Drew days. I’m embarassed that I didn’t know Darelee published this series. Will have to read one of her books. They look fun!

    This sounds like a great series. It reminded me of the Toby Taxi tales, where he rides around London solving things while exploring the city. Nice review, Erik. I liked the trailer, also.

    I’ve lived in England, although that was before the London Eye was built. Amanda certainly gets to visit all the best tourist spots during her adventure. Just watching the trailer makes me want to go back! Nice review, Erik.

    Erik, I also love books that help me explore a location. And this is one location I know well. I must get a hold of this series.

    Thanks for this review,, Erik. I have been thinking of putting Amanda on my to read pile and now Amanda in England will move up the priority list a bit. I think the location will prove to be a fun scene in the novel. Location,location location they say in real estate. 🙂

    Very nice! Sounds like a great way to learn about different countries/places. 🙂 It’s my first time to hear about Amanda and her travels. Have you read any of Mitsumasa Anno’s travel books? They might be good companion reading materials.
