COMING SOON Alice-Miranda At Sea

Hello Friends,

It's been a really busy week. I'm very excited that my new book Alice-Miranda At Sea will soon be launched - quite literally as we are holding the launch on a boat on Sydney Harbour on Saturday 6 August. There will be more details about that as soon as the official invitation is ready. This week my best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey sent the manuscript for my fifth adventure, Alice-Miranda Takes Manhattan to my special friend Linsay Knight at Random House. I can't tell you too much yet but we had a lot of fun in New York and you won't believe some of the people I met!

I think it's almost time for bed - it has been a rather exhausting week.

Have a great weekend and I'll see you all soon.

Hello Friends

Hello Everyone,

I am so excited. Aunt Charlotte's wedding is fast approaching and I'm going to be a flower girl. I can't tell you where the wedding will be yet because it's a secret. Poor Uncle Lawrence is always being photographed by the paparazzi and I'm sure that he and Aunt Charlotte would prefer to have their wedding as a private family affair. I do know that Aunt Charlotte and Uncle Lawrence are inviting Millie and Jacinta and Sep too. Of course Lucas will be there because Uncle Lawrence is his father. I can't wait. Have a wonderful week and I'll give you some more details as soon as I can.

Love and best wishes,
Alice-Miranda xxx
