Sneak Peek at my next adventure - Alice-Miranda In Japan

Hello Friends,

I couldn't wait to share the beautiful new cover for my next adventure, Alice-Miranda in Japan which will be released in Australia 1 February 2014.  I think it's gorgeous.  We had such a great time and what a mystery to solve!

Have you got your diary for next year?  I'm excited to find out who's going to be in my class - there's an enrolment form inside and lots of girls have been signing up and sending their forms to my best grown up friend Jacqueline Harvey on her email address Jacqueline@jacquelineharvey.com.au
Classes will be on the blog and Jacqueline's website in time for school to go back in January 2014.

I'm very excited to be heading to Singapore tomorrow where I'll be meeting lots of new friends over the next 10 days.  Then we're off to England so that I can introduce Clementine Rose!  We're going to loads of lovely schools in London and then we're going over to Lancashire, Shropshire and Manchester.  I can't wait - although I think it's going to be a lot colder in the UK than it is in Sydney at the moment.  I love the English cover of Clementine's first adventure - it's different colours to the Australian one but the second book is almost exactly the same.

Happy reading everyone.

Lots of love,
Alice-Miranda xxx
