Review by: Krystian Pasich on Oct. 28, 2013 :
The book tells the story about brave rose Amadeus trying to find a cure for her friend Anastasia. While reading the book children can learn that no matter how hard your task can be you shouldn't give up. This situations have reflection in real life all the time. At school children may have problems with understanding some lectures but when they keep trying without giving up they'll reach their goal. When you learn to work hard saying "you can be anyone you want" is starting to be a real thing.

Review by: Przemyslaw Pasich on Oct. 27, 2013 :
The book is really worth reading! Even though it ostensibly seems to be a lighthearted tale about the adventures of a flower, just like 'The Little Prince', it teaches us some everlasting truths and moral values. I believe that not only children but also their parents will find this book interesting . I wholeheartedly recommend it to those who are looking for a profound thought-provoking and compelling book.
