Jacqueline Harvey has combined a successful career in education with her love of a good story. She is the author of 14 novels for younger readers and a picture book, THE SOUND OF THE SEA, which was awarded Honour Book in the 2006 Children’s Book Council Awards. Her bestselling Alice-Miranda series centres on the life of Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kennington-Jones, a perpetually positive and determined seven year old who takes herself off to boarding school because it appeals to her sense of adventure. The first book in the series, Alice-Miranda At School was released in Australia in February 2010 with Alice-Miranda On Holiday, Alice-Miranda Takes the Lead, Alice-Miranda At Sea, Alice-Miranda In New York, Alice-Miranda Shows the Way and Alice-Miranda In Paris following at six month intervals.

Are you dressing up for Book Week?

Hello Friends,

I'm so excited that this week is Book Week and lots of my friends are having special celebrations about books and reading at their schools. My best grown up friend Jacqueline Harvey is going to be talking to some children about my stories too. Are you dressing up for a character parade? My good friends Ruby and Lauren have dressed up as me! They look adorable in their Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale uniforms. I'd love to see your photos from Book Week. You can send them to jacqueline@jacquelineharvey.com.au

Have a great week!
Lots of love,

Alice-Miranda xx
