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!

  1. 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…..?

  13. 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. 🙂

  14. 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.
