Yesterday afternoon I was very excited to meet ten little girls who had a boarding sleepover with my best grown up friend Jacqueline Harvey. I stopped in with Mr Plumpton to say hello. They were cooking Nana Jones's Apple Pie (from the recipe in the back of my first adventure) and they had spaghetti bolognaise for dinner and then for breakfast Mr Grump came and cooked them bacon and eggs. They even baked a Devil's Food Cake too which looked delicious. I think all of the girls would love to come to boarding school all the time.
Jacqueline Harvey has been very busy lately visiting lots of schools and even talking at Roseville College Speech Night last week. She's been writing Clementine Rose's third adventure, Clementine Rose and the Perfect Present and the little girls at the boarding experience had a sneak peek last night.
Jacqueline said that the girls stayed up way past my bedtime - but they did go to sleep! I wish they could come to my school - they all looked like they would make excellent boarders. Jacqueline is putting the finishing touches to our Paris adventure which will be launched in March next year and we're about to start work on a new story very soon. I hope you enjoy the photographs and I will write again soon.
Lots of love,
