“Reviewed By K.C. Finn for Readers’ Favorite

Stranger in the Mushroom Patch is a work of fiction in the fantasy adventure subgenre, and it serves as the fourth book in the Mischief series. It is aimed at younger readers and was penned by author Amanda M. Thrasher. This novel continues the adventures of Lilly, Boris, and Jack as a game of slimy moss bomb leads them to an encounter with a human child, with whom they find some surprising common ground. Tasked with returning the child to their own kind, the group of friends must go on another fun-filled adventure to reunite their new friend with her family before the humans come looking for her.

This was a delightful adventure pitched perfectly at its young audience, with whimsical characters on a fun and exciting quest after making an unusual new friend. Like all good children’s authors, Amanda M. Thrasher has some important values she wants to share with the next generation of readers, and her characters lead by example to demonstrate the importance of friendship and being kind to the people you meet. These themes are delivered well and it never feels like morals are being forced on the reader. Instead, the author tells an excellent story with characters who embody those values. I was particularly fond of the elders who balance their protective nature with the knowledge with which they must equip the young to look after themselves, an elegant metaphor for the trust that develops in the parent and child relationship. Overall, Stranger in the Mushroom Patch is a worthy continuation of an already excellent series of children’s books, and I recommend it highly.”
