This week I had the pleasure of seeing quite a lot of girls dressed up as me for their Book Week Parade. I was hoping that if you dressed up this year, you could send a photo to my best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey at her email address firstname.lastname@example.org and she could put them here on the blog. My new adventure, Alice-Miranda Shows the Way is now out in the shops. We are still going to have an official launch but we're going to combine it with the launch of a new friend, Clementine Rose, whose first adventure, Clementine Rose and the Surprise Visitor will be out next month. I will post more details as soon as the grown ups make some decisions. I hope you all have a great Book Week. Last week I met lots of new friends at the Abbotsleigh Literary Festival and I can't wait to hear what they think about the books.
Jacqueline Harvey is helping me work on my next adventure, Alice-Miranda in Paris - which will be out in February next year.
Have a lovely weekend - I'd better get going as it's getting close to bedtime.
