The tiny girl has TWO schools to save in this awfully lovely adventure

The tiny girl has TWO schools to save in this awfully lovely adventureAlice-Miranda is thrilled to be back at school, where the girls are preparing a play with the neighbouring boys' school. But it's not all glitter and stage lights: there are rumours of a witch in the woods, and Jacinta and Millie are clashing with a rude new student, Sloane, and her pushy mother, September. September Sykes wants to win her family the fortune she's sure it deserves, but her scheme could end in disaster. When Alice-Miranda learns of the plot, she knows just how to set things right.

Reviews

A nicely complex plot involving odd rules at neighbouring boy's school, Fayle, rumours of a witch in the forest, and the greedy scheming of September Sykes, make for an enjoyable and entertaining school story with a difference.

[The] third Alice Miranda title is as fun and amusing as the first two, thanks largely to the irrepressible protagonist, Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kennington-Jones, a spunky seven-and-three-quarter-year-old with a taste for adventure. A modern take on the classic boarding-school narrative that offers a lot of fun and adventure to younger readers
