Well, August has been a whirlwind! I’ve visited lots of schools, from the city to Cobbitty and many in between. I’ve had lunch with the stars at Manly for the Children’s Book Council (I sat with the gorgeous students from Manly Village Public School) and launched a new book, Alice-Miranda in the Alps and the new Alice-Miranda Diary for 2016. In between school visits, I finished writing Alice-Miranda to the Rescue (which will be out 1 February 2016). I celebrated the start of Spring by beginning a new book, Clementine Rose and the Special Promise which will be out 1 January 2016. All up it’s been a very busy time. I have LOVED receiving all your pictures of the Alice-Miranda and Clementine Rose dress ups during the month and have created a huge montage here – actually I had to do three because there were so many entries. The winners of the competition have been announced on the newsletter – so if you aren’t signed up, you can just jump into the sun in the top right-hand corner of the home page and do that now and then you can enter any upcoming competitions too (we run one every single month!). I love that there was a whole teaching staff that dressed up as Alice-Miranda in her different outfits – how amazing is that :). Congratulations to all the winners!
