"Mandie and The Windmill's Message" by Lois Gladys Leppard

About this book:

  “Mandie, Celia and Jonathan should have known that when Uncle Ned said there was a big mystery waiting for them in Holland that he meant a BIG mystery. Adventures had followed them at every stop on their summer travel through Europe with Mrs. Taft, Senator Morton and Uncle Ned, and Holland promised to be no exception. But what mystery could the quiet, peaceful land of the windmills possibly bring?
  They won't be there long before they find out. Who's behind the mysterious resetting of the windmill's blades and what message are they sending? Is it a harmless prank or is someone really up to something bad? Are lives in danger?
  Is someone out to destroy the royal family's reputation?”

                                   P.O.V. of Mandie
                                              Set in 1901
                         190 pages (also available in a collection with four other Mandie books.)

Pre Teens-

Early High School Teens-
Older High School Teens-
My personal Rating-
Sometimes I think every young man who comes across Mandie is smitten with her; there’s a couple that aren’t, but most are. It’s the blue eyes and blond hair. ;)

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.
