The English Roses is a story of rivalry and friendship among schoolgirls in contemporary London. Four little girls-Nicole Amy Charlotte and Grace-are eleven years old and the very best of friends.

However 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. Author: Madonna. Publisher: Viking Childrens Books. Pages: 48.

Reviews

"The story explores several issues, among them the idea that one can be envied or pitied and the emotional deprivation that often motivates overcompensation in both children and adults...Forget Madonna's wild ways. She offers a vital message for girls. Judge the book, not the author."Deirdre Donahue, USA Today"
