Jasmine and the missing coin

Pointed to me by livejournal-ist mdmbrightside from the d_princess community.
In the line of Disney Princess books a new Jasmine title was released last January. Amazon has the following summary
“Life at the palace is splendid for Princess Jasmine and Prince Aladdin. With Aladdin’s birthday coming up, Jasmine wants to find him the perfect gift, so she sets off on a Magic Carpet ride with Rajah the tiger. She is determined to track down the coveted camel coin Aladdin is missing from his rare-coin collection. It’s smooth sailing until Magic Carpet suddenly loses its power, leaving Jasmine and Rajah stranded in the desert! Will the pair find the coin and make it back to the palace in time for Aladdin’s birthday?”
It sounds a bit weak but I guess that’s what you can expect when there’s the Disney Princess stam on it.
I love the cover and ordered it from bol.com for that alone according to a reviewer at Amazon the other illustations have a “beautiful and Summer-y” feel on it.

My Best Friend Is Jasmine Review + Free Wallpaper

A few weeks ago I found a omnibus filled with various Disney stories including a story called “My Best Friend is Jasmine” the title didn’t ring a bell at first but the little girl who is Jasmine’s new friend looked familiar. So after coming home I looked around and found the story was also available separate.
I wasn’t interested in the other stories and to spend 18 EURO on one story is kind of expensive so I decided to order it online. Now, three weeks later, it finally was delivered.

Jenna meets Abu after being taken care by Jasmine in the book My Best Friend is Jasmine

My Best Friend is Jasmine is a Disney Princess story by Lisa Ann Marsoli with illustrations from the Disney Storybook Artists published in 2006 by Random House New York.
Jenna is a young street urchin taking care of her little brother and Sister Rafi and Salima. Despite for a meal Jenna stole some apples hanging over a palace wall. As she plucked the apples a parrot landed near her on a branch. Jenna leaned over to pet it losing her balance and ending up on Rajah’s soft back. There she meets Princess Jasmine and her tiger pet. The princess invites the girl and her siblings to stay at the palace for a while. Finally Jenna, Rafi and Salima have a real best friend.

The story is nice and heartwarming for a first read but the simplicity of it makes My Best Friend is Jasmine a onetime read. The illustrations are cute with splendid colors and Jasmine and friends look wonderful on model.
The wallpaper is made for screen resolutions of 1024 by 800 pixels.
