Look at this terrific series of books written for middle-school aged minds – filled with mystery and wonder, all focused on one young girl who travels the world!
“Amanda” Has The Best Adventures!
Author Darlene Foster is an active voice on social media, and an accomplished writer as well, with a series of novels that share the worldwide adventures of 12 year old Amanda Ross!
This “Wednesday Bookmobile” highlights Foster’s series of novels featuring Amanda!
As Foster’s bio states:
Growing up on a ranch near Medicine Hat, Alberta, Canada, Darlene Foster dreamt of writing, travelling the world, and meeting interesting people. She also believed in making her dreams come true. It’s no surprise she’s now the award-winning author of Amanda Travels, a children’s adventure series featuring a spunky twelve-year-old who loves to travel to unique places. Readers of all ages enjoy following Amanda as she unravels one mystery after another.
Here’s a look at the books in the series:
Amanda In Alberta: The Writing On The Stone”
This will give you an idea of how each adventure unfolds. In this story, Amanda is delighted to show her friend Leah around Alberta during her visit from England.
Amanda showcases all of the unique aspects of life in Alberta, but when she finds a stone with a unique mark on it, she doesn’t think it’s important until everyone seems to want it – including a very ornery cowboy. Is this stone worth ruining Leah’s holiday and placing them both in danger?
The books each combine local history and culture with a mystery that Amanda must solve….here are the other books in the series:
Amanda On The Danube: The Sounds Of Music
Amanda in New Mexico: Ghosts in the Wind
Amanda in Arabia: The Perfume Flask
Amanda in Spain: The Girl in the Painting
Amanda in England: The Missing Novel
Amanda In Holland: Missing In Action
As you can see, Amanda does indeed travel the world. I love this series because it inspires young minds to want to travel and learn local cultures – to explore our incredible world!
