Move over, Matilda, and step aside, Madeline, there's a new charming miniature heroine about to make her mark.

Can one tiny girl change a very big school? Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kennington-Jones is waving goodbye to her weeping parents and starting her first day at boarding school. But something is wrong at Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale Academy for Proper Young Ladies. The headmistress, Miss Grimm, hasn't been seen for ten years. The prize-winning flowers are gone. And a mysterious stranger is camping in the greenhouse. Alice-Miranda must complete a series of impossible tests. Can she really beat the meanest, most spoilt girl at school in a solo sailing mission? Could she camp in the forest all on her own for five whole days and nights? Well, of course. This is Alice-Miranda, after all.

Reviews

Alice-Miranda has a beguiling ability to enchant those around her and an enthusiasm for helping people in need. This new series, with its sprightly, resilient heroine, who is sweet without being cloying, offers readers a lively blend of humour and intrigue.

Kirkus Reviews

Alice-Miranda's optimism and determination is infectious. An immediately lovable character that young girls are going to want to be or be with.

Deborah Abela

I loved this book so much. It's amazing that a seven-year-old girl can change a whole school! I like Alice-Miranda because she is brave and kind.
