“Lively and opinionated, Marya’s first-person narrative is consistently entertaining, and the many attractive grayscale illustrations add another dimension to this transitional chapter book.”

Marya Khan and the Fabulous Jasmine Garden (Marya Khan #2)

Written by Saadia Faruqi
Illustrated by Ani Bushry
Published by Amulet Books

Marya’s school is creating a community garden for students to take care of, and Marya is super excited. Not only will her third-grade class be the first to work on it, but Marya’s mom will be teaching the students all about gardening. Most importantly, one student will be chosen to lead the charge. Marya REALLY wants to be the class leader . . . but so does Alexa, her worst enemy. Cue Operation Be a Leader! Marya plans to work hard to prove she can be in charge, but nothing she does seems to make a difference. Birds keep destroying the plants, and none of Marya’s classmates want to listen to her. Can Marya bring everyone together and make the most beautiful, fabulous garden the school has ever seen?
