I am so excited to be travelling with my best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey to London and other parts of England and Scotland in February to launch my third and fourth adventures, Alice-Miranda Takes the Lead and Alice-Miranda At Sea with the fabulous Random House Children's Publications in the UK. As you can see I was all packed and ready to leave a few days ago and now we are in chilly London. Tomorrow we will be meeting new friends at Charlotte House School and then I'm so thrilled to be visiting Sarum Hall school again on Tuesday as I have lots of friends there already. I will be writing about our travels as often as I can.
When we get home to Australia, my seventh adventure, Alice-Miranda In Paris will launch in March and at the moment we are busy working on the eighth which is called, Alice-Miranda Shines Bright.
Hope you're enjoying a lovely weekend.
Lots of love,
- Jacqueline Harvey
