What’s the worst thing about reviewing kids’ books? When you find a book so enchanting that you want to ignore your own child to keep reading it!
…It is also the tale of a strong little girl who takes life in her stride and has so much to teach the adults around her. She is one girl representing the spirit of childhood: a breath of fresh air reminding us to enjoy life, embrace happiness and treat others well. Alice-Miranda sticks her nose in everyone’s business and approaches her obstacles without fear, making you wish you could live life in just the same way.
Alice-Miranda is a truly remarkable character: she may be spoilt and precocious, but she is so likeable and inspiring that you forgive her indulgences (like being able to call for her daddy’s helicopter to deliver the household cook to school).
Alice-Miranda at School is a modern story with a touch of the classics about it – just enough to make it feel like a book from your own childhood: adventurous, beautifully written, comfortable and fun.- Megan Blandford, Kids’ Book Review Australia
