A Guest Review by Dellylu: The English Roses by Madonna

The ladies of Mrs. BG are tickled pink to present a guest review by Dellylu!  

Dellylu says:

I am crazy about Clarice Bean, writing, fashion, books and my best friend. I also like Alice in Wonderland but not nearly as much as my sister (Izzy).  I utterly love using the word utterly.

Dellylu is DeLynne's youngest daughter so, of course, she is an amazingly talented and delightful young lady.  Yes, we are biased but it is true! 

Dellylu is nine and her new blog,  I think...,  is a welcome addition to the blogosphere. She plans to write about  books, games, clothes, school, and other girl stuff.  The pillow she posted of her first sewing project is too cute.

If you have tween girls in your life, please direct them to Dellylu's blog.

Without futher ado, Dellylu's review:

My Grandma sent me a Angus and Robertson gift card for Christmas. I ordered The English Roses by Madonna and with pictures by Jeffrey Fulvimari.

It finally came and when it did I was utterly thrilled. The illustrations are sooo pretty. I also liked the bright colours. This book is so perfect for 9 to 12 year old girls.

This book is about 4 girls who do everything together.
But, there is a new girl named Binah and the English Roses are jealous of her.

Binah is very very beautiful, she is an excellent student and very good at sports,  she is very kind too.
 But Binah is lonely, she has no friends.  The English Roses are avoiding and ignoring her. This book tells a story of how The English Roses become friends with Binah.


  1. Hi Dellylu!!

    Thanks for guest reviewing! I find these sorts of stories about girls very appealing and I love the cover on this book!! Utterly delightful!!

    You are welcome to guest review anytime.


  2. Miss D,
    I'm so glad you wrote this because I've wondered about these books since they were first published. They are so pretty!

    Hi, Dellylu! What a great first review. =)

    You're right that this book is perfect for 9 to 12 year olds. I know a nine-year-old girl who just loves the English Roses.
