A world with a beautiful princess, a dangerous desert and wonderful friends. Join Amanda on her first adventure as she discovers the secrets behind The Perfume Flask.

Reviews

"Amanda in Arabia contains a story with an interesting and intricate plot. There are good guys and bad guys; there is a mystery involving danger and intrigue; there are clues to help solve the mystery; and there is a hero. There is A LOT of action packed into this little book! Every morning after reading this book the night before, my daughter would love reporting back to me what had happened in the book. Both she and I were hooked." —Mother Daughter Reviews

"Be prepared to learn a lot about the culture while you follow Amanda on her adventure." —Laura Best, author, Bitter, Sweet 

"What a great way for a young person to learn about a culture and to be inspired to experience other countries themselves." —Irene Butler, author, Trekking the Globe with Mostly Gentle Footsteps
