Mayne Island Skeletons – Review by Leanne Dyck

Standard

Mayne Island Skeletons is not only a fun read for children 9 to 12 years of age but it also teaches many valuable lessons—such as how to be a good friend.

 

Mary Magdalene Sommers’ mother is attentive and reliable; whereas, Brent Green is the son of a neglectful parent. Despite these differences Magda values Brent’s friendship. She continues to believe in his good character even in the face of negative public opinion. In fact, she works tirelessly to prove his innocence and to secure his safety.

 

Through Magda’s example children are empowered to solve their own mysteries and resolve their own problems.

 

Thank you Amber Harvey for this uplifting read.

Mayne Island Skeletons reviewed: “We can ,,, taste the blackberries”

Standard

Magda’s curiosity and loyalty lead her into investigations set on her Mayne Island home.  We can smell the Gulf Island fir-scented mornings and taste the blackberries as she navigates daily life as well as the calls to adventure that stretch her courage.  I have read three Magda books with great pleasure and can’t wait for the next ones.

Kathryn Poulin reviews Mayne Island Skeletons on MysteriesEtc

Standard

I don’t normally review children’s books however Mayne Island is very close to where I live so I knew I would find the book very interesting.  The story brings me back to my childhood when I loved reading the Enid Blyton mysteries and the wonderful adventures the children in her stories had.

Harvey’s adventure starring Magda her preteen sleuth is a great book for children to read.  I love the location, Mayne Island, and I love the writing style of the author.  The children in the book are active, they are not glued to electronics.  They are inquisitive and mostly they show great character traits as they show the value of friendship.

Highly recommend this great read for preteens!
