A touching new tale of hope and miracles from the award-winning Siobhan Parkinson.

I love Miranda and so will you - Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl

Miranda has a Big Imagination, and always wins Word of the Day at school. When her sister Gemma is taken into hospital, Miranda escapes into her own fantasy land, Magnanimous. With giraffe police, ham sandwich trees and a Crystal-Clear Glass Hospital for Getting-Better Children, Magnanimous grows and grows. As her sister gets worse, things Miranda writes seem to trigger small miracles she has been asking for: her gran stops smoking, horrible Darren Hoey is nice to her ... Can Miranda write a miracle for her sister?

Industry Reviews

I love Miranda and so will you

What a lovely book! Siobhan Parkinson's Miraculous Miranda is a feel-good and funny novel - Bookwitch

A lovely celebration of the power of the imagination, and of determination, with a strong lead character whose voice shines through the pages of the book, encouraging us all to think more creatively - Parents in Touch

...there is no shortage of empathy here; Parkinson writes to rather than at children, alongside rather than for them. - Irish Times

I defy any reader not to love this positive story and narrator Miranda's trenchant, witty, and vulnerable voice along with it. We love Siobhan Parkinson in these 'ere parts and in Miraculous Miranda, she's given us another little jewel of a middle grade novel. - The Bookbag
