A disaster in Winchesterfield village sees Alice-Miranda and her friends in the middle of the action. The devastating result is a family left without a home, but after a suggestion from a surprising place, the girls make big plans to help. It seems a festival is on the cards!At school, there’s tension in the air with the arrival of a new teacher and a tussle for power between some of the existing staff. There are secrets aplenty too – though some are more dangerous than others. Can Alice-Miranda decipher fact from fiction and ensure the festival’s success?

About the author

Jacqueline Harvey

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, Clementine Rose and Kensy and Max 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 adventures, and some exciting new projects too.

                    Hello!
                    I was just wondering how much Alice -Miranda Keeps The Beat costs? I would really like it but I’m not sure if I can afford it and waiting for my birthday almost isn’t an option. It’s all the way in October!!!
                    Thanks!
                    Sincerely Jessica.
