Jacqueline Harvey is a very talented Australian Author and very kind too. She writes the Alice-Miranda Series about a young girl called Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kennington-Jones. She has chocolate curls and brown eyes as big as saucers, but most importantly a heart of gold. Alice-Miranda is very smart for her age as she is only seven and one-quarter years and decided she wanted to go to Boarding School, Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale Academy for Proper Young Ladies. She has such optimism and enthusiasm and is a tiny heroine.
The event was so much fun, I found out so much about Jacqueline and Alice Miranda. She even gave me a few tips. I had only read the first one but I really loved it and it then made me want to read the rest and I knew from that moment I was an Alice-Miranda Fan. On the day I purchased Alice-Miranda takes New York, which I got signed. It was only released in February so it was.. I guess you could say launched at the event.
"Alice-Miranda is in bustling New York City. It's a blur of skyscrapers, hot dog carts, chats with zoo animals and classes at Mrs Kimmel's School for Girls, right next to glorious Central Park. Her family's glamorous department store, Highton's on Fifth, has just been renovated but plans for the fabulous re-opening party are going curiously wrong. Is that why Alice-Miranda's father Hugh seems so worried? And why is her new friend Lucinda so shy about inviting Alice-Miranda home?"
