Movie Review:

I haven't seen this movie, yet. However, from looking at the preview, I think this movie looks like a mix of Anne of Green Gables and American Girl Movies. I look forward to seeing it on the ION Network this Christmas!!!

  1. Ooh! I think this is based off of the Mandie book series! When I was little Mandie and the Secret Tunnel was one of my favorite books! This looks like a really good movie! I can't wait to see it!!! : )

  2. I grew up reading every MANDIE book. I wish Mrs. Leppard could have finished out the series the way she wanted. I think these are a wonderful tribute to her work and memory. However, I was disappointed with the adaptation of the second installment. Here's hoping this one is better.

  3. Is this going to be on again? I missed it and loved the two before. I was looking forward to seeing it.
