Amelia Fang and the Half-Moon Holiday


Amelia Fang is rather apprehensive about her first holiday from home. However being with her friends Florence, Grimaldi, Prince Tangine and the other Rainbow Rangers, helps a little. Furthermore, the prospect of exploring somewhere unknown, like Sugarplum Island, is a lure!

However, as Amelia negotiates her boat toward their destination, she is aware of a shadowy figure beneath the waves. When the Ranger troop learn they’ll be foraging for food, Prince Tangine is horrified- no maid service? His need to eat leads him to skip off from camp leaders, Ricky and Graham,  on a hunt for a shop or cafe. Of course, Amelia is compelled to follow her headstrong princely friend! What they discover is so delicious as to be too good to be true! This is where their problems begin… There may be a bee-wildering royal helper and a sofa thoughtful royal slug, but Amelia and her three friends have a tiny, yet momentous problem. What could be the answer? Might it have anything to do with what lies under the seas around Sugarplum Island?

Amelia Fang and the Half-Moon Holiday is the fourth title of an exceptionally creative, satisfying and howlingly funny series. We are so happy to recommend this book, and its predecessors, to our readers.

Amelia Fang and the Half-Moon Holiday

Laura Ellen Anderson


Grab your pumpkin rucksacks! We’re off! It’s Amelia Fang and the Half-Moon Holiday. Ricky and Graham have created a Rainbow Ranger club in Nocturnia to which Amelia and her friends belong. Over the holiday week, they’ll stay on Sugarplum Island. Furthermore, Ricky advises them to ‘prepare for awesome activities and a chance to win themselves a BUNCH of Rainbow Ranger BADGES‘! Amelia’s apprehension at being away from home during a holiday for the first time, eases.
However, Ricky and Graham and none of the troop can predict what lies ahead! While Grimaldi is anxious about sailing to the island, once there nothing goes to plan. Additionally, the group is dismayed when they learn food foraging is one of their  activities. Prince Tangine is horrified at the lack of catering service! His hunger pangs lead him to wander off against better advice, determined to find a shop or café. What he discovers is beyond anyone’s imagining, and thereafter, leads to a huge amount of tiny trouble for Tangine, Amelia, Florence and Grimaldi. Could their predicament have anything to do with the shadowy figure that Amelia feels beneath the waves of her island boat?
Amelia Fang and the Memory Thief captivates and amuses us. We are reminded of characters introduced in Amelia Fang and the Unicorn Lords, Laura Ellen Anderson’s second book. We love the imagination, glorious images and ghoulishly good fun. Further, we have a happy familiarity with the characters, behaviour and setting in this fourth outing. Welcome Amelia Fang and the Half-Moon Holiday!
