Review - Amanda in Arabia: The Perfume Flask

Title: Amanda in Arabia:The Perfume Flask
Author: Darlene Foster
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Amanda Ross is your average twelve year old Canadian girl. So what is she doing thousands of kilometres from home in the United Arab Emirates? It's her own fault really, she wished for adventure and travel when she blew out those candles on her last birthday cake. Little did she know that a whole different world awaited her on the other side of the globe, one full of intrigue, mystery and folklore. A world with beautiful princesses, mysterious mystics and wonderful friends.

Join Amanda on her first adventure as she discovers the secrets behind The Perfume Flask.

My Review:
Very good. Every once in a while I like to pick up a children's book, and be whisked back to childhood. This was one of those books. Darlene Foster did a great job setting the scene in the UAE for 12 year old Amanda to have  an unique adventure while visiting her Aunt and Uncle. I read this book in one sitting. Definitely recommended for young boys and girls who like to pretend, and want to have an adventure. Would love to read more of Amanda's  journeys abroad.

My Rating:
A Nice Birthday Cake

Thank you for the review Ashton. I am so glad you enjoyed the book and were able to escape back into childhood for awhile. Amanda in Spain - the Girl in The Painting is also available at the same locations. Amanda in England - The Missing Novel is being written as we speak. Amanda plans to do a lot more travelling!
