The Perfume of Memory

Written by Michelle Nickly

Illustrated by Jean Claverie

In a land of palm trees and flowering vines lives a girl named Yasmin. Like all children in this fragrant land, Yasmin dreams of becoming the Royal Perfume Maker. But the law forbids it. Now only boys may compete for the coveted position, in the contest held every year at the palace. Almost no one can remember a time when it was any other way.

But when the Queen's memory is taken from her by an enemy, Yasmin has the chance to bring it back and to prove that a girl can be anything a boy can be.

This is a take of courage and character, a tale that shows the enormous power of a person who knows - and can remember - what is right.
