Alice-Miranda and her friends are going on a very big adventure which will take them far away from home. They’ve been selected to attend the inaugural youth leadership program called the Queen’s Colours, in Scotland – exciting! This is for all the brightest and best students from around the world and readers will enjoy catching up with many favourite characters from previous Alice-Miranda titles.
The week-long program includes lots of fun challenges, physical and mental, along with all the compromises that come with mixing with some rather difficult personalities! However, Alice-Miranda is determined to make sure that she enjoys her time in Scotland and that everyone else does too.
Jacqueline Harvey worked in schools for many years but has had a passion for storytelling since she was a child. She is the author of the popular Alice-Miranda and Clementine Rose series, which have sold over one million copies in Australia alone. Her books have received numerous short-listings and awards while her picture book, The Sound of the Sea, was a CBCA Honour Book.
Jacqueline speaks to thousands of young people at schools and festivals around the world, and says the characters in her books are often made up of the best bits of children she’s met over the years. While she is not a twin, like Kensy and Max she does have excellent powers of observation and has always thought she’d make a great spy.
Jacqueline lives in Sydney and is currently working on more Kensy and Max, Alice-Miranda and Clementine Rose adventures.
