Happy New Year! I can't believe that it's already 2014. Doesn't time fly. I'm really excited that my best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey will be heading back to The Tea Salon in Westfield Sydney, twice in January and something extra special is happening while she's there. My new adventure, Alice-Miranda in Japan will be available - two weeks early! It's sure to be a lovely morning with lots of yummy cakes and sandwiches. There's tea and coffee for the grownups and milkshakes and other delicious drinks for the children. If you'd like to come along you need to get your parents to book - and do it soon because these things have a habit of selling out very quickly.
Lots of love,
- Jacqueline Harvey
