Alice-Miranda In New York Coming Soon

Hello Friends,
I hope you're having a lovely holiday if you're off school at the moment. My best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey has been very busy helping me put the finishing touches to my latest story, Alice-Miranda In New York which will be released in Australia on 1 February 2012. I had such wonderful time in the Big Apple and I can't wait to share my adventures with you.
Best wishes,
Alice-Miranda xx
PS I will post a draft of the cover as soon as I can.
