5.0 out of 5 stars At Last a new GIRL Hero -- Intermediate Level WINNER!, Oct. 9 2003

(REAL NAME)   
This review is from: El Dorado Adventure (Paperback)
It's about time that a new female hero hits the fiction shelves. Not since "Matilda" and "the Witch of Blackbird Pond" did intermediate level fiction offer the 50% of its readers, who happen to be girls, a role model to emulate.
No less spellbinding than "Shiloh" or "My Side of the Mountain", "The El Dorado Adventure" is loaded with gripping cliff-hanger moments and action packed survival fever. A page turner you won't put down. Recommened for 4th through 7th grade reading. A winner on my book list!*****

5.0 out of 5 stars A high point in the series!, Oct. 24 1999
By 
Gen (Washington) - See all my reviews
This book is one of the high points in the Vesper Holly series, and I hope it becomes available again soon. Though not *quite* as good as the Jedara adventure, it still sparkles, and you get more insight into Helvetius. (Who I think is a fascinating bad guy, and who makes or breaks a book.) Vesper gets to be incredible and brave - but she also she admits she's wrong. It's a nice treat.

4.0 out of 5 stars Vesper Holly strikes again!, July 3 1998
By A Customer
Alexander's Vesper Holly books combine the best of adventure and humor. Evil villains, wild chases and a wonderfully comic style make this a treat for anyone over the age of 10 or so. A great role model for girls, Vesper takes no guff from anyone. These will also be enjoyed by fans of Elizabeth Peter's (adult) books starring Amelia Peabody.
