I am so excited that my new adventure Alice-Miranda In Japan has just hit the shops. To celebrate the release, my best grown up friend Jacqueline Harvey and I will be visiting bookshops around Sydney for several different events. I will post more details and the beautiful flyers that go with them soon but for your diary now:

Saturday 1 March 1-2pm a huge celebration of Alice-Miranda In Japan at The Children's Bookshop at Beecroft

There will be lots more happening in March as Jacqueline is touring in Melbourne and Queensland as well as visiting the fabulous Somerset Festival on the Gold Coast. More details soon.

Lots of love,
