Description

Product Description Join twins Mia and Maddie and their sidekick little sister, LuLu, as they travel the country finding adventure, mystery, and sometimes mischief along the way. Together with their famous mother, singer Gloria Glimmer, and their slightly wacky nanny Miss Twist, the sisters learn lessons about being good friends, telling the truth, and a whole lot more. In A Dolphin Wish a three-night stop in the city of San Diego seems like it might be just the break the girls need—lovely weather and great sights to see. That is until they hear animal handlers at “Watery World” talking about the trouble they’ve been having keeping the animals in their habitats. Mia and her sisters cannot resist a challenge and they talk Miss Twist into another visit to the educational amusement park to search for clues as to what or who is helping the animals escape. From School Library Journal Gr 3–5—This series, written by Grammy-nominated singer Grant, introduces three blonde sisters: 10-year-old twins, Maddie and Mia, and little sister Lulu. In London Art Chase, the girls travel to London for the first time with their famous singing mom, Gloria Glimmer; dad; and zany nanny, Miss Julia Twist. Although the story revolves around all three sisters, Maddie takes center stage. She finds herself on the chase for a famous missing painting. What follows is a fun adventure while the mystery behind the art theft unravels. In A Dolphin Wish, Mia uncovers a mystery of her own when the girls visit an adventure park where the animals are going missing. Grant's background in Christian music is evident here; the girls' faith guides them through their adventures. God and Christianity play major roles in the story. When the girls face a dilemma, it is not only their family but their faith that shapes their choices. The sisters are sweet and innocent. As the slight mysteries unfold, Grant interjects some realistic life lessons about overcoming deceit and coping with everyday family issues. VERDICT Younger middle grade readers, especially those with a Christian faith, will enjoy these appealing and light mysteries filled with sisterly bonding.—Bernice La Porta, Susan E.
