Alice Miranda to the Rescue by Jacqueline Harvey
Published by Random House Australia
I have often recommended the Alice Miranda series to girls looking for something to read. The recommendations come from their known popularity and reviews. Finally at number 13 in the series, I have been given one to review and it’s time to acquaint myself with Alice Miranda.
Alice attends the Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale Academy for Proper Young Ladies. In this book it is a new term and Alice Miranda is happy to be back at school. Miss Reedy and Mr Plumpton are engaged and the wedding is fast approaching. The school is in a spin with a surprise and Caprice and Mille are not getting along.
Meanwhile in nearby Winchesterfield, the village is going to host a prestigious dog show. This brings plenty of strangers along and some mayhem is on the way. Time for Alice Miranda to act!
I enjoyed my first Alice Miranda novel and am happy that there is a great fun, light and adventurous series for girls.
The chapters are a good length for a thicker book and I like the cast of characters at the back.
