Book Description

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?

About the Author

Jacqueline Harvey has spent her working life teaching in girls' boarding schools. She is pleased to say that she has never yet encountered a headmistress like Miss Grimm, but she has come across quite a few girls who remind her a little of Alice-Miranda. Jacqueline has published six novels for young readers. Her first picture book, The Sound Of The Sea, was awarded Honour Book in the 2006 CBC Awards. She is currently working on Alice-Miranda's next adventure.

Jacqueline Harvey

Jacqueline Harvey’s bestselling Alice-Miranda series began as an idea for a picture book but it soon became apparent that this perpetually positive seven-and-a-quarter-year-old had a lot more to say.

The series has been sold to the United States, United Kingdom, Indonesia and Turkey and has been shortlisted for children’s book awards in Australia. Her first and only picture book, The Sound of the Sea was an Honour Book in the 2006 Children’s Book Council Awards.

Jacqueline has spent most of her working life teaching in girls’ boarding schools and has been a Deputy Head and Director of Development. She is passionate about improving educational outcomes for Indigenous students.

Jacqueline lives in Sydney with her husband Ian and is currently working on Alice-Miranda’s next adventure as well as an exciting spin-off series for younger readers about a sweet little girl called Clementine Rose.
