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. Jacqueline is currently contracted to write 12 Alice-Miranda books. She has a new series for younger readers (5-9 year olds) which launched in Australia in September 2012. Jacqueline is contracted to write eight Clementine-Rose books with Random House Australia. For more information go to www.jacquelineharvey.com.au

Do you like to colour in?

Hello Friends,
Do you like to colour in?  I do - it always has a very calming effect on me.  Mrs Shillingsworth, our housekeeper, loves to colour in with me (although she always pretends that she's only doing it to keep me company when I'm home from school).  So, I am very excited that there will soon be colouring in pages on my best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey's website, www.jacquelineharvey.com.au  Check there over the coming weekend to find them!  There will be all of my book covers as well as this gorgeous cover for Clementine Rose's first adventure that you can print off.
Lots of love,
Alice-Miranda xx

Meet Clementine Rose!

Hello Friends,
I hope you enjoy meeting Clementine Rose in Jacqueline Harvey's first ever Book Trailer.  The clever ladies at Random House Australia made it and it's very sweet.  I especially love the music.  I'm hoping to have one about my stories soon and I'll let you know as soon as it's done.  In the meantime enjoy Clementine Rose and her gorgeous tea cup pig Lavender.  Watch carefully though - there are some cute moves that you might not see the first time through.  Have a wonderful weekend.  I'm going to be very busy helping Jacqueline Harvey with my next adventure, Alice-Miranda In Paris.
Lots of love,
Alice-Miranda xoxox

The real Alice-Miranda?

Hello Friends,

Last week, I had to look twice when these photographs arrived.  I thought it was me!  But this is actually Grace.  She dressed up for her school's Book Week Parade and looks amazing.

If you dressed up, I'd love to feature you on the blog too, so just send the photos to my best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey at her email address jacqueline@jacquelineharvey.com.au

I'm really enjoying hearing what you all think about the new book, Alice-Miranda Shows the Way.  It was such a great adventure - and I love that Bony has a new friend too.

Have a great week at school - happy Spring to all my Australian friends and happy Autumn and Fall to my British and American friends.  I know some of you in England and America are starting school this week, so all the best for a wonderful year.

Loads of love,

Alice-Miranda xoxox
