One of my favorite books as a little girl

"Mandy" by Julie Andrews Edwards is a delightful tale about an orphan who finds an abandoned cottage and tries to make it her own. Mandy's character is easy to love and you are drawn right into the story. Whenever Mandy is hiding from her roommate, you are holding your breath right along with her! There are several hard lessons that Mandy has to learn and I think that once she's set on the right track, she makes a good role model for girls everywhere. I would definitely recommend this book. And if you enjoy this story, you'll probably like The Secret Garden (HarperClassics) by Frances Hodgson Burnett.

College Student's Favorite Book

I'm a Senior in college and I still tell everyone that this is the best book that I have ever read. I remember the first time that I found out about this book. I was in fourth grade and my reading teacher, Ms. Reed, read this story to the whole class. I got lost in the book and couldn't wait until the next day for reading class to find out what happened to Mandy next. I told my mom about the book and she went out and bought it for me. I had finished the book before Ms. Reed finished reading it to us, but I still enjoyed listening to the story. I know that this book sparked my desire to learn and read and to this day I remember that teacher and wish I could thank her for choosing such a wonderful story to get us involved in literature. I love this book!!

I really loved this book!

The book Mandy was given to me on Easter about three years ago. I started reading it and immeadiately loved it. Mandy is about a ten year-old orphan girl who yearns for something she can call her own. Thenn one day she finds it. At the edge of the orphanage there is a high wall. Mandy climbs over it and follows a path till she discovers a wonderful little cottage! The rest of the story is about how she tries so hard to keep the cottage to herself. I loved this story because every kid shares Mandy's feelings at some point in their childhood.I could feel Mandy's feelings as if they were my own as I read the book.

The very best "children's book" I have ever read.

This is one of my top 10 favorite books ever. I first read Mandy when I was 11 or so and I've read it over and over since then. I've given this book to 6 nieces and each one has loved it as well. A young English girl, a secret cottage, different flowers she plants, and odd English foods (to an American) she snacks on all add up to a book one could read over and over. I only wish J.A.Edwards wrote more for this age group. It's a beautiful story you'll never forget. You'll find yourself thinking of people you'd like to give it to - and not necessarily children!

Outstanding book for young girls

As a child, this was a book that I read over and over again. Now that I have a daughter of my own, I want to share this with her. Julie Edwards ( Andrews) is not only a fabulous actress and singer, she is also a terrific author. This is a story about a young orphan girl trying desperately to find her place in the world. She lives in a large girls school but she is very lonely and wants more than anything to have a family of her own. In her daily wanderings, she discovers a little cottage that she decides to make her own. This story is charming and heartwarming in every respect as we travel with Mandy on heradventure to find a place, and a family of her own
