The tiny girl has TWO schools to save in this awfully lovely adventure

Alice-Miranda is thrilled to be back at school, where the girls are preparing a play with the neighbouring boys' school. But it's not all glitter and stage lights: there are rumours of a witch in the woods, and Jacinta and Millie are clashing with a rude new student, Sloane, and her pushy mother, September. September Sykes wants to win her family the fortune she's sure it deserves, but her scheme could end in disaster. When Alice-Miranda learns of the plot, she knows just how to set things right.

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

    It wasn’t until November 2012, that Jacqueline Harvey took the giant step away from a 20 year career in schools as a teacher, Deputy Head of Junior School and most recently, Director of Development, to become a full time writer.

    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, Turkey and Brazil (for Portuguese translation) and has been shortlisted for children’s book awards in Australia.

    The Clementine Rose series for younger readers has followed closely in the footsteps of Alice-Miranda’s success, with the series being sold to the United Kingdom and Brazil. Jacqueline’s first and only picture book, The Sound of the Sea was an Honour Book in the 2006 Children’s Book Council Awards.

    Jacqueline lives in Sydney with her husband Ian and is currently working on more Alice-Miranda and Clementine Rose adventures. She relishes any opportunity to get back into school and work with the children who inspire her writing.  In her spare time she likes to play golf in exotic locations.
