I loved it Dec 13, 2006
In Mandie and the Washington Nightmare Mandie is going to visit the White House. The mystery had a pretty goofy ending but besides that it was really good.You probably think I'm dumb but I actually liked the parts when Mandie was kind of mean to Celia it made it more interesting.
A good book! Nov 28, 2005

Great book Mar 16, 2005
This is another great book. I would tell you all about it but others have done that. One part that I think is weird is that Uncle Ned seems to know everybody, up to the residents of the White House, and Mandie has no clue why, or where, or when. Highly recommended.
Mandie and the Washington Nightmare not as good..... Oct 9, 2004
I really like some of the Mandie books, but this one didn't seem very good. The main problem I had with it was the ending, it was kind of goofy and really abrubt. I've read better. Still, the Mandie series is good!
Really Interesting Book Dec 4, 2003
Mandie has been invited to visit President McKinley, and she couldn't be more excited. But since her mother is going to have a baby, neither she nor Mandie's uncle can take her. Mandie has just about given up when her Grandmother Taft agrees to take her. Finally, Mandie is on her way! But (get this) George Washington has been seen around the White House, and on top of that, Mandie and her friends overhear what they think to be a threat against the President. But Mandie solves the mystery in the most unexpected way.
I think the parts about George Washington and the 'threat' is very funny. But I don't understand why Mandie and Celia are afraid of elevators. But I guess in those days you couldn't be certain of anything. Finally, Mandie and Celia have a spat. It may seem petty, but I sympathize with Celia. After all, Mandie did say that Celia could tell. But it turns out all right in the end. This book is very good on the whole and I recommend it.
