Hello USA!

Hello Friends, I am so excited I don't think I am going to get much sleep for the next couple of nights. Tomorrow my first adventure, Alice-Miranda At School is being launched in the United States of America! My best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey can't wait to talk to the girls at The Hewitt School and launch my book to lots of new friends. It will be Tuesday 5 April, midnight in Sydney Australia and 10am in New York City. At the moment Jacqueline is busy helping me put the finishing touches to Alice-Miranda At Sea, which is the fourth book and she's also helping me write about my adventures in Manhattan (which is in New York). So, I would love to hear from my new friends in America - please write and tell me what you think about my story. Love and best wishes, Alice-Miranda xx
