Meet the Author

Lois Gladys Leppard

Lois began her first Mandie story when she was only 11 years old. But eventually the manuscript was tucked away in a drawer and forgotten. Lois went on to attend Furman University and studied music for several years in New York City where she and her sister sang professionally. Some years ago, Lois was prompted to pull that old manuscript out and began to work on Mandie's story - of her childhood in the South at the turn of the century and her Cherokee heritage. The rest is history - and now the Mandie books series have sales nearing six million copies! Lois writes from her home in South Carolina. Enthusiastic young fans fill her mailbox with their insightful responses to her stories. - Publisher.

Excellent Books
5 stars By Kirrily, Dec 30 2016
I loved reading Mandie books as a girl and it's excellent value to now be able to buy 5 in 1 volumes for my 8yo daughter to read - she's starting to enjoy them just as much as I did. Every individual Mandie story is a great read. I've often gifted Mandie books over the years to friends and nieces and they are always loved by all.

Great Series
5 stars By Bollosm, Nov 03 2016
Hola !
Mandie # 1

by Lois Gladys Leppard 
 
#1 "Mandie": The books in this volume are about 11 year old Mandie who lives in North Carolina, America. These stories are set in 1900  1901.  The character of Mandie is based on the life of the author's mother. She loves to find out the answers to mysteries and all of the books in the series are about solving mysteries. Mysteries: 'Mandie and the Secret Tunnel', What secrets has she not been told about her family? 'Mandie and the Cherokee Legend', What is this legend all about and why does uncle Ned not like to talk about it? 'Mandie and the Ghost Bandits', was it a good idea to unhook the train cars? 'Mandie and the Forbidden Attic', what are the noises Mandie hears in the attic  why won't Miss Prudence let her go up there? 'Mandie and the Trunk's Secret', why was Hilda touching the trunk  why is it locked?! 
So if you are a historical fiction and mystery fan then these books are for you! I recommend this volume to girls and maybe boys aged nine to fourteen. I really enjoyed these books! My sister and I are still reading this series to each other (she's twenty three and I'm fifteen)!

Great books!
5 stars By Emily, Aug 25 2016
I love all of the amandine books and it is great to have a 5 in 1 volume. It is great value. All five books in this set are great. The first, Mandie and the Secret Tunnel, is about Mandie's search for her lost relatives. The third, Mandie and the Ghost Bandits, is about Mandie and her friends adventures when they were kidnapped by bandits on a train. Fantastic books for girls aged 8-14.

Classic
4 stars By Trudy, Nov 30 2015
I purchased these for my daughter in the hopes that it would increase her love of reading. Needless to say she loved them so much that I can barely keep up with buying them all for her!! She loves following Mandie on her adventures and we even got a white cat just like the one Mandie has in the books!
