I enjoyed the book “The English Roses” by Madonna because of the illustrations, point of view, and characters. This book is modern fantasy because it is an impossible story that was written with a identifiable author. The illustrations of this book are pleasing to look at and are very trendy. The illustrator, Jeffery Fulrimari, did an amazing job giving each of the main characters a distinctive look with clothes that reflected their personality. The illustrations bring out each girls differences that you would not understand by only reading the text. The point of view is different than most stories because the reader do not know who is telling the story until the very end. The story is written in third person and on the last page you find out the character telling the story was a mouse. The characters are also very believable in the way that the four girls in the clique grew through out the story and realize, through their fairy god mother, that Binah, the prettiest girl in school, was lonely and needed a friend. Even though this story was fantasy, it seemed very real that the girls had a fairy god mother show them a day in the life of Binah and how she really needed a friend. It also felt real when the fairy god mother made the girls invisible and watched Binah do all the chores in her house. It is very easy for girls to be jealous of others and to make judgement on girls based on appearance. The story’s message was that people need to include everyone, to be kind, and everything is not as it seems. ( )

Written by Madonna, this book is the story of a click of girls and their perception of another girl. The book has a surprisingly strong story line and delivers a message without being too teachy while doing it. I enjoyed this book and so did my daughters. ( )
