"London Art Chase" by Natalie Grant

About this book:

  “In London Art Chase, the first title in the new Faithgirlz Glimmer Girls series, readers meet 10-year-old twins Mia and Maddie and their adorable little sister, LuLu. All the girls are smart, sassy, and unique in their own way, each with a special little something that adds to great family adventures.
  There is pure excitement in the family as the group heads to London for the first time to watch mom, famous singer Gloria Glimmer, perform. But on a day trip to the National Gallery, Maddie witnesses what she believes to be an art theft and takes her sisters and their beloved and wacky nanny Miss Julia, on a wild and crazy adventure as they follow the supposed thief to his lair. Will the Glimmer Girls save the day? And will Maddie find what makes her shine?”

My personal Rating-
This was a very cute book with even cuter illustrations and good lessons sprinkled in. I did have to wince at the mentions of an American Girl doll and her stories, since that company has promoted something the Bible speaks against. :(
While it felt like it was written for younger girls compared to previous Faithgirlz books, this one was cute and I think Pre-Teens will like it! :)

See y’all on Monday with a new review!

*BFCG may (Read the review to see) recommend this book by this author. It does not mean I recommend all the books by this author.
