I was so excited to get an email from Isabella who lives in Stockholm, Sweden. She dressed up as me on the cover of Alice-Miranda At Sea for her school's book day - and she looks amazing. I've never been to Sweden but I'd love to visit. Isabella also sent me a picture of her reading the book during the mid term break - and this time she was in Dubai! I've never been there either but it sounds like a really interesting place. I think Isabella must travel as much as I do :). I love seeing photos of readers from around the world - so please send them to my best grown up friend Jacqueline Harvey and we can add them to my blog (of course make sure that you ask your parents first).
Yesterday I did a little spot for a television show - I will post a link as soon as I have the details about when it will go to air.
Have a great week.
Lots of love,
PS I hope to see lots of you at my launch for Alice-Miranda In Paris this Saturday - click the link for bookings.
