I read it together with my ten-year-old grandaughter. We had fun in Magda’s island world watching the fictional yet believable characters deal with both life’s easy and tougher challenges.
This island setting is familar to my grandaughter and I. We recognised the charm of the place in Amber’s quietly inserted descriptions. Like all good stories, the tale is universal - something like blaming others solves no conflict, look to your own feelings and needs. Again, it’s quietly inserted, no moralising, no shoulds or ought to’s.

Hi Amber, I bought my daughter your book, 'Magda's Mayne Island Mystery' while we were on Mayne a couple summers ago, and she loved it so much she did a novel study on it for school. She also did an adorable diorama. So, I read the book too, and I just loved it!! Thanks!
