I am so excited to tell you that Clementine Rose and the Pet Day Disaster will be out on the 1st of January 2013. Clementine and I haven't met yet, but I suspect we might very soon. The cover for the new book is below and I think it's adorable. I wish I had a tea cup pig too - Lavender is so sweet. Clemmie is starting school - at Ellery Prep, where I used to go before heading off to boarding school. It's a lovely place and Miss Critchley the Head Teacher is a very special lady. I hope Clementine loves school as much as I do. You'll have a little bit longer to wait until my next adventure, Alice-Miranda In Paris is out on the 1st March 2013. I loved Paris - it's so beautiful and we had an amazing time seeing the sights, singing and unravelling a mystery or two.
I hope all of you have a wonderful holiday season. Happy Christmas to everyone.
Lots of love,
- Jacqueline Harvey
