Tally and the Angel is a cute story geared for 7-12-year-old children. Eleanor Dixon did an amazing job writing this story. The level of detail allows readers to really visualize the story. The plotline has the elements of fantasy, mystery, adventure, and bravery. The characters are enchanted. This is the story of Tally and her very own Angel. Tally received a pendant after the saddest day (her mom’s death), it has the Angel Jophiel living inside it. One would think that having an angel with you would be awesome, but Tally learns that it is not always the best gift. The adventure that you take with Tally and Angel Jophiel has some twists and turns, ups and downs, and some scary stuff they get into. Will Tally and Angel Jophiel be able to enjoy the adventure? Can Tally and Angel Jophiel stay focused on the positive side of things or will there be some bad things that they cannot overcome? I highly recommend this book as I found it an interesting story.

Tally is a young teenager who just lost her mother. She is given a necklace from her mother with an angel pendant on it. The angel’s name is Jophiel. He is kind of like a guardian angel to Tally as she and her father embark on a trip to India. Tally is excited because she will be homeschooled and gets to travel with her father. She is looking forward to new adventures. She finds herself on a new and dangerous adventure once they are settled in their new city. She and her new friend, Balvan, try to figure out the case of the missing girls. Learn true facts about India as you read about some of the trouble that finds Tally. I liked the characters in the book. Jophiel is a wonderful character because he reminds her to be a good person and if she strays, he tends to get her back on the path.

A sweet tale about a young girl discovering who she is with the help of a guardian angel. Tally is only 13 and after the death of her mother travels with her father to India where the adventure begins. This is a well written paranormal mystery recommended for pre-teens and up. There is decent world building and character development and Tally was very easy to relate to. A very strong start to what looks to be a terrific series.

Tally and the Angel is the first book in a cute middle-grade children’s contemporary series.
Tally is gifted a pendant by her mother, but it is not just any pendant, it has an angel living in it! Tally believes having her very own angel is great and cannot wait to take him on her trip to India with her father.
Once in India, she learns of children being kidnapped in the city of Agra, that they are staying in. With the help of her angel Jophiel and a few friends along the way, she begins to solve the mystery of who is taking the children and what has happened to them.
I think the author did a great job of using words that middle-grade readers could understand and relate to. As an adult, even I was excited to find out how the book concluded and what the answer to the mystery was.
I would highly recommend this book, not only for young middle-grade readers but for adults too. It was a fun book that includes mystery, adventure, friendship, bravery and so much more! The author really makes you feel like you are a part of the adventure and wants you to keep reading to find out what happens.
I cannot wait to read where the next adventure is for Tally and Jophiel!

This was a lovely children’s book and one I would definitely recommend for young readers. The authors writing was really easy to follow and the story was interesting. I could definitely see young readers reading this book and wanting to read more of the series. It definitely got my imagination going! The authors descriptive language could definitely be used as a talking point for readers as well as some of the themes that come up in Tally’s story.

Definitely an enjoyable read and one I would recommend!

I can’t say enough good things about Tally and the Angel by Eleanor Dixon. I ventured way outside my comfort zone when I chose to read this. I’m very glad I did. I got way more than I bargained for. Tally and the Angel is a great story, with strong characters, and excellent descriptions of the places Tally visits. I felt like I was there in India and the Taj Mahal. Eleanor Dixon gives a lot of opportunities for the reader to learn compassion, empathy, choosing between right and wrong, especially for younger readers. I plan to read this to my kids soon, I think they’ll really enjoy it! I can not wait to see where Tally and the Angel go on their next adventure. I highly recommend it for every age!

I enjoyed this fantasy story. This is a well written story about Tally and her Angel. She believes that having an angel with her things couldn’t go wrong. Until she realizes that it doesn’t seem to matter as she finds herself in danger and in a race against time. She took me on a fun, entertaining adventure where she will find courage and strength. She made such a great character. She is relatable and I really enjoyed what she brought to the story. The secondary characters are just as fun and entertaining. They brought the story to life and took me on a fun adventure. This is a great fantasy story that I am happy I picked up. I highly recommend this book.

Tally and the Angel: Book One India is a fun Middle school age children’s story by Eleanor Dixon. This is a wonderful paranormal fantasy, with adventure, mystery, danger, drama, a race against time, bravery, and more.
Tally inherits a necklace that holds a wonderful secret. The necklace is home to an Angel- and you guessed it- adventure awaits. When Tally discovers that children are being stolen, she feels she needs to do something about it. And so the adventure begins. She and her angel guide, Jophiel, find themselves pitted against the ‘bad guys’ in a race against time in order to save the day. I couldn’t help but become invested in the outcome and was rooting for her the whole way through.
This story may be aimed at a younger audience, but it is so charming that I feel it could be enjoyed by all ages!

Thank you, Eleanor Dixon!

A great story with a brave main character! Tally is an adventurous almost 13 year old who is given a special gift from her mother. This gift contains an angel who stays with her at all times. Together they go on adventures while Tally travels with her father. I enjoyed this book more than I thought I would. Tally and her angel go on an epic adventure that kept me engaged and eager to find out more.
