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.
