With Love from Spain, Melanie Martin Book Review

With Love from Spain, Melanie Martin Book Review - Reviewed by Kidzworld on Dec 27, 2006
( Rating: 5 Star Rating)

If you're looking for a good book to sink your teeth into, why not check out Kidzworld's review of the latest book in Carol Weston's Melanie Martin Series?

Author: Carol Weston

Your fave jet-setter is back for more adventure and this time she's headed to Spain. Melanie Martin and the fam are spending spring break checking out museums, lounging on the beach, taking lots of siestas and meeting up with Mel's mom's old boyfriend, Antonionio. If you think that sounds like trouble, you're right!


La Descripcion (The Overview)

What would happen if on your family vacation, your mom met up with her old flame for some quality catching up? Think it would be weird? Well, Melanie's about to find out! When they first arrive, Melanie starts plotting ways to keep her mom and Antonio apart - but then she meets Miguel, Antonio's son, and her whole perspective changes. Suddenly Antonio doesn't seem so bad since the more time they spend with him, the more time she gets to spend with Miguel. But just how much Antonio time is Mel's dad willing to take?


El Bueno (The Good)

With Love from Spain, Melanie Martin is a great, quick read. The entire book is composed of entries from 11 year-old Melanie Martin's diary. But, before you decide you've had enough of this novel format, just give it a try. You'll be hooked by the end of the first couple of chapters. You're guaranteed to laugh out loud throughout the book and you may even learn a thing or two. Since the book is set in Spain, Melanie flexes her linguistic skills by throwing in as many Spanish words as she can (don't worry, she includes the pronunciation in brackets beside the word). With Love from Spain is funny and interesting - a winning combination.


El Malo (The Bad)

While the phonetics included after all the Spanish words can be useful, they can also be a pain in the butt. Despite those getting on your nerves, the book is good enough that you should be able to put up with 'em. Other than that, With Love from Spain is definitely worth a bit of your free time.


Lonea de Fondo (The Bottom Line)

Joining Melanie Martin and her fam on their spring vacation in Spain is just about as much fun as going to Spain on your own! You'll learn all about famous Spanish artists, explorers and royalty, without feeling like you're stuck in some stuffy history class. In fact, it's more like an exotic adventure park. Pick a copy up - you won't regret it.

    I nervously scratched my skull. After that one incident Ink, I had, feeling immense regret, I had spent a large portion of my time researching such entities like ERROR and Ink, though I had never seen ERROR in person. "I-... I don't know either! That-that is an interesting question!" ​((Papyrus looks at PunMaster for a second. "So, what do you want to do now?" He smiles again, a huge grin that hadn't been seen on his face for a long time.))
