The English Roses is a story of rivalry and friendship among schoolgirls in contemporary London. Nicole, Amy, Charlotte, and Grace are the very best of friends and do everything together. They are all a little bit jealous of Binah, a beautiful girl in their neighborhood who has a seemingly perfect life. When a feisty, pumpernickel-loving fairy godmother takes them on a magical journey, they learn to their great surprise that Binah’s life is not nearly as enviable as it had seemed. The English Roses is an inspiring story about the importance of compassion and the rewards of friendship. Full of whimsical, colorful illustrations by renowned fashion artist, Jeffrey Fulvimari, the book appeals to readers aged six and up.
