Happy Publication Day to Clementine Rose and the Seaside Escape

Hello Friends,

Hope you're all having a fantastic time at school this term.  I can't believe it's almost Easter.  I'm so excited that my best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey has a new book out tomorrow.  It's called Clementine Rose and the Seaside Escape and it's a gorgeous adventure and guess what?  I was at the seaside too with Millie and Jacinta and we met Clementine Rose and her little piggy Lavender and her new friends Freddy and his big sister Della.  She's a bit of a handful.  I think she might give Alethea a run for her money but you'll have to read the story to find out what happens.

I hope you love it as much as I do.

Lots of love,
Alice-Miranda xx
