Overview

Amanda Ross is visiting England and taking in all the sights. She gets lost in the maze at Hampton Court, does some shopping at Harrods, meets the ravens in the Tower of London, explores Windsor Castle, and rides the London Eye. When she discovers a vintage book is missing from a collection, she is determined to find out who stole it. Amanda befriends a pair of tough teenagers from the streets of London, an elderly bookshop owner, and a big, friendly, clever, Maine Coon cat named Rupert. Follow Amanda through cobblestone streets, medieval castles, and underground tunnels in her quest to find the missing novel!

Reviews

"Amanda in England: The Missing Novel is a delightful romp through modern-day London. I highly recommend it for readers in late elementary school or for anyone who loves solving playful mysteries that do not reveal their secrets easily." —Long and Short Reviews, Book of the Month

"Be prepared to learn a lot about the culture while you follow Amanda on her adventure." —Laura Best, author, Bitter, Sweet

"What a great way for a young person to learn about a culture and to be inspired to experience other countries themselves." —Irene Butler, author, Trekking the Globe with Mostly Gentle Footsteps
