Reunions and rivalries in the land of the brave!

Reunions and rivalries in the land of the brave!
Alice-Miranda and her friends have been invited to attend the Queen's Colours inaugural leadership program in Scotland and they just might be joined by a few familiar faces from around the globe. There are plenty of skills to be learned and challenges to conquer, and the excitement could be enough to push some over the edge.

Luckily, there is plenty to divert the students' attention including a surprise encounter on Loch Ness. Could it be the region's mythical monster? Little do they know it's the real monster in their midst they should be worried about. In this rollicking adventure, Alice-Miranda must draw upon all her wits to lead her friends to safety while, of course, making a few new friends along the way.

Reviews

It’s easy to see why children adore the characters – brave, spirited Alice-Miranda in particular – created by award winning Australian author, Jacqueline Harvey . . . Recommended for the 9+ reader, fans of Alice-Miranda will love going to Scotland with her latest book, but it can also be read as a stand-alone if your child hasn’t had the thrill of being immersed in one of the previous 16 titles.

Better Reading

What could possibly be more delightful than our favourite BFF immersed in Scotland’s culture and icons? . . . as always, Alice-Miranda’s innate compassion and empathy for others shines through.
