I am so excited that my best grown up friend, Jacqueline Harvey's latest book, Clementine Rose and the Farm Fiasco is now in shops around Australia. I love the cover - it's so pretty. I just met Clementine Rose at the beach while Millie, Jacinta and I were on holiday with Millie's mum and dad at their caravan. You'll be able to read all about that in the adventure Jacqueline Harvey and I are writing at the moment. It's called Alice-Miranda In Japan. It will be out next year in March. Before that I'm so excited that Alice-Miranda Shines Bright and the Alice-Miranda Diary for 2014 will be in shops 1 September.
Have a great week - I promise to write a longer blog about our wonderful time in Adelaide soon. I had a lovely email during the week from a friend called Violette-Rose and I'm planning to try and use some of her ideas for some posts. So, pop back again soon.
Lots of love,
- Jacqueline Harvey
