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,
- Jacqueline Harvey
