I did not like this book as much as the other two previous books It was boring I was disappointed when they all got captured again in the beginning like they did in the second book The rest of the book they were just searching for the gold, again I was hoping that they would do something new, but they did not so it took me a little longer to get through this book. Mandie and the Ghost Bandits is the third book in Lois Gladys Leppard s Mandie series There are twenty four in all The reader of Ms Leppard s books should bear in mind that these volumes were 1 written for preteens, for girls in particular, 2 based on her grandmother s experiences growing up in the first few years of the Twentieth Century, and 3 characterized by a dated writing style They are, however, entertaining, and they bear witness to a strong faith.The dramatic question that moves Mandie and the Ghost Bandits forward is whether Mandie and her friends will find the gold they discovered in a cave and the bandits who stole it During the course of pursuing that goal, the eleven year old lead character learns important lessons about herself and others Her faith in God s Providence and her obedience to His commands are rewarded with blessing upon blessing Mandie is pure hearted, loving, loyal, and very likeable, even if she is sometimes a bit preachy Parents of upper elementary age children will find Leppard s books suitable for good, family friendly reading Each volume is short less than 150 pages , highly readable, and easy to carry around.

This one wasn t as great as the first two, but just barely Mandie starts to develop as a character and the interactions between her and her friends become real The adventure is fun and carries the plot along at a decent pace It might affront some with the intermingling of religion into the book, to the point it almost becomes a plot crutch, but it isn t horribly aggressive or egregious Probably 2nd to 6th grader girls are the target audience and I see no reason why this wouldn t appeal to them. For goodness sake, I would hate to be the parents of any of these kids the way they disappear for days on end and wind up in dangerous situations Mandie and her friends are on a train taking the Cherokee gold to the big city, only someone has gotten wise to the plan and made off with the gold and with Uncle Ned A derailment, a long wandering in the wilderness keeps the pace moving quickly Again, I get a little fed up with the preachiness aspect, but I like the characters despite all of that and am glad to see some flaws surfacing in the perfect Mandie now and again Overall this is not my favorite of the series, but it s worth reading, especially for the sake of continuity as you go forward in the series.
