The Perfect Flower Girl

Publisher: Allen & Unwin

Sisters Mariam and Amani are very excited about being flower girls at the wedding feast of their Aunt Sarah and her new husband. There are all kinds of preparations, from cooking to visiting the dressmaker - but when the day itself comes, will Amani and her sister be the perfect flower girls?

This joyous picture book about a Lebanese Muslim wedding is very much aimed at little girls, with delicate but vibrant and stylish illustrations, and plenty of pink and sparkle. A glossary of Arabic words is also included for those readers who may not be familiar with the terms.
