Alice-Miranda takes a bite out of the Big Apple!
Alice-Miranda is in bustling New York City. It's a blur of skyscrapers, hot dog carts, chats with zoo animals and classes at Mrs Kimmel's School for Girls, right next to glorious Central Park. Her family's glamorous department store, Highton's on Fifth, has just been renovated but plans for the fabulous re-opening party are going curiously wrong. Is that why Alice-Miranda's father Hugh seems so worried? And why is her new friend Lucinda so shy about inviting Alice-Miranda home?
“Jacqueline Harvey has penned a tightly-woven and detailed plot in her latest Alice-Miranda adventure. Children as young as seven or eight will delight in Alice-Miranda's adventures and her purity of heart, while older readers (10-12) will enjoy the elevated plot threads, language and relationship subtleties. Alice-Miranda in New York is a story of family, friendship and honesty. I just loved touring this spectacular city once again, via the pages of this gorgeous book, and I loved sharing the journey with Alice-Miranda who is, all-in-all, a remarkable little girl.”
