I remember reading a book when I was about 9 or 10 that I absolutely loved. I believe the main character's name was Mandy or Amanda and she found a little cottage in the woods where she would go and hang out. I used to play in the woods by my house pretending to be this little girl. I'd love to find this book again.

Julie Andrews (yep, from Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music) wrote a children's book called Mandy that I read years and years ago.  And Mandy found a cottage in the woods.  I remember she actually cut the overgrown grass around the cottage with scissors, because that was the only tool she had.  Could this be the book you remember?

Thanks!
