Description from the publisher:
Nine-year-old Rose is determined to change her dad's mind about two Saudi Arabian police officers, Fahd and Abdul, staying at Grandma's house while visiting Arizona. Rose and Grandma help the officers with English lessons while the officers share with them their culture and Islamic religion. The officers' kind ways and good manners soon win over the hearts of many, but not Rose's dad. She creates one plan after another, refusing to become discouraged when her plans backfire and get her into trouble with her dad. Instead, Rose designs an ingenious new plan. Its success or failure will have a lasting effect on Rose, her family and new friends.
Islamic Rose Books include original recipes, interesting facts about places Rose, her family and friends visit and a glossary of Islamic words and definitions. www.widad-lld.com
