Dear Mrs Harvey,
This is so exciting!!!
I can’t wait to see the movie!!!
Do you know when the Alice-Miranda Activity book & journal will be released?
I can’t wait to get them both! 🙂

Hi Jacqueline,
As soon as I received the email from you about the movie, I begged my Mum to buy tickets. I will see you on Saturday 16 November 2019 at Chermside. I can’t wait. I am going to bring my book I won (AM keeps the beat)
From Lucy

September 14, 2019 at 11:06 am



Hi Jacqueline, I have two questions. 1. Is all those books listed above going to be available, even the movie script? 2. In the picture above of Am friends forever, with the four horses, I can recognise AM and Millie but who are the people behind them on the horses, is it possible Lucinda?

Sorry for the annoying questions I just really wanted to know.
From Lexi

September 14, 2019 at 10:50 pm



    I’m pretty the other two Jacinta and Lucas, all though I can’t say for certain.

    September 15, 2019 at 8:40 pm



    Sorry what I meant to say was “is it possibly Lucinta(as in Lucas and Jacinta)” not lucinda

    September 17, 2019 at 5:39 pm



      Doesn’t Jacinta hate horses? I do love lucinda, though, I love the character development and their relationship growth! Can’t wait for AM 19!

      September 21, 2019 at 9:29 pm

        Jacqueline Harvey


        You’re right – she’s not a fan but for the movie she’s not quite as vocally opposed to them as in the books. The screenwriters have taken some poetic licence with the script and so it is a little different to the way I tell the stories – but still lots of fun. Hope that you get to see it :).

        September 22, 2019 at 12:05 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Yes all of those books are currently available even the movie script. You can buy them in bookshops all over Australia or online on shops like Booktopia. The people on the horses are Jacinta and Lucas. Jacinta likes horses in the movie (the production company changed it but I’m fine with that).

    December 4, 2019 at 10:14 am



Wow! That is so cool! The movie looks AMAZING.
I can’t believe this is happening! Is it comeing to New Zealand any time soon? Because if it is I’ll definitely go and see it.
Also,congratulations on getting a movie based of your own book. How cool is that!?
Once again,it looks AMAZING. I can’t wait to see it.

September 16, 2019 at 2:46 pm



    OMG that is sooooo cooollll congrats!
    Who are the main characters?
    You are sooo luckkkyyyy

    October 7, 2019 at 9:33 am

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hi Kyla,

    The movie was on in some cinemas on the North Island when it was on at the cinemas in Australia but I’m not sure if they are getting it on subscription television like we have STAN in Australia – I will do some investigating. Hope you get to see it soon.

    Best wishes,

Sarah Tucker


Hello Jacqueline

I’m so excited about seeing the movie. I’m such a big Alice-Miranda fan and I have every book that you’ve made of the Alice-Miranda series. My sister loves Alice-Miranda and she’s excited about the movie too! Are you gonna make a DVD of the movie too?

I can’t wait!

September 17, 2019 at 1:13 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hi Sarah,

    I’m not sure about the DVD situation as I don’t have all the knowledge about the movie. The production company will let me know what’s happening. Hope that you get to see it.

    Best wishes,

    September 22, 2019 at 12:09 pm



Any news on AM 19?

September 20, 2019 at 12:43 pm



Hi Jacqueline!
Congratulations on having a full blown movie in production for your books! I’ll be sure to watch it when it comes out. Also, happy very early 10th AMiversary! (Works better then AMHSKJversary) I saw a new variant cover for Alice-Miranda at school and suddenly remembered. In fact if you look at it a certain way, you’ll realize it’s been an entire decade of you and your writing bringing smiles to children’s faces- and that’s important.

note: I also know about the count of the sea and your code name books, but from what I’ve read it seems your first AM book was where your career kicked off!

Out of curiosity, what’s in store for AM 19? I saw a comment to which you replied that it could be in Australia. If not, then could you drop a hint on it? I’m all ears.

I also saw the new cover for kensy and max: free fall. It looks so pretty! Please give Anne Yi a hug from me and tell her that she’s really good at what she’s doing. I feel like illustrators for books and book covers deserved to be recognized as much as the writer because they bring characters to life too.

p.s: I’m the same Jess that recently posted a loooooong comment which you put on your Facebook (thank you ilysm)

September 20, 2019 at 4:57 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Thanks Jess! There is a beautiful 10th Anniversary edition of AM At School coming out next year – I can’t believe that it’s been ten years – it seems like a moment ago. I am thinking about AM 19 and I can feel an Aussie adventure about to happen – so stay tuned. Anne Yi is amazing – such a talented lady and I’m so thrilled we work together. You are right in saying that AM was when my career properly took flight.

    Best wishes,

    September 22, 2019 at 12:07 pm



      Wait, I saw the cover for book 4 and it was called Out of Sight. Is Free Fall book 5 or 4? I am so confused right now.

      November 1, 2019 at 1:32 pm

        Jacqueline Harvey


        Free Fall is Number 5 – Out of Sight is out now and is number 4.

        November 3, 2019 at 4:13 pm



          I just found it in the library!
          Then got told it was in a different library

          November 5, 2019 at 2:09 pm

          Eliana Midgley


          Dear Jacqueline Harvey,

          I’v read all the Alice-Miranda, Clementine Rose (except the new one) and Kensy and Max books, got Kensy and Max No: 1, 2 and 4 in audio book and watched Alice-Miranda Friends Forever. Whens the new Kensy and Max and Alice-Miranda book coming out? I read that your hoping Kensy and Max Freefall ( No: 5) is coming out in June.

          February 15, 2020 at 9:42 am

          Jacqueline Harvey


          Hi Eliana,
          Kensy and Max: Freefall has been released this month and Alice-Miranda in the Outback will be released in June. I hope you enjoyed the movie and the books 🙂
          Best wishes,

          March 16, 2020 at 1:34 pm



      I really Want all of of he Kensy and Max books

      November 6, 2019 at 5:39 am

I am so excited. I am from Australia and can’t wait for AMHSKJ 19.
I recently saw the book four of kensy and max.
I can’t wait to read it.
Anything With Lucinta whoops I mean Lucinda
please answer

September 24, 2019 at 4:11 pm



    Please reply ms Harvey you and robin Stevens are the best authors ever!
    Any chance you could include a murder in AM book 20.
    Please to this post and my other one!

    October 23, 2019 at 10:48 am

      Jacqueline Harvey


      Hi Stella,

      Thank you for your kind words. I’m not sure about a murder in AM but I certainly have some dastardly things happening in the next Kensy and Max book which I’m writing at the moment!

      Best wishes,

      October 23, 2019 at 11:10 am



        I recently saw your answer. I have watched the Alice Miranda movie twice because it was so good, it’s really different from the book and I thought that was awesome


        P.s when I saw you had replied to me I was screaming my head off I’ve never spoken to someone so important

        January 29, 2020 at 2:43 pm



Do they have this movie in Singapore?

September 25, 2019 at 10:36 pm



P.S. I looooove Alice-Miranda books

September 25, 2019 at 10:46 pm



Hi Jacqueline I am Ariel. I am a big fan of yours

XOXO Loves and kisses,Ariel

    Thanks Ariel – I love Singapore – it’s such a great place (but a bit hot for me at times). Where do you go to school?

    Best wishes,

    October 23, 2019 at 11:45 am



Hi Jacqueline!

I’ve loved reading your books for a while now! I’d say my favourite character is Jacinta because she’s a lot like me (and every Lucinta moment was adorable!!!). I also love Chessie as she’s super sweet.

Just a few questions:
How old is Sep?
Who’s the boy in the picture with AM, Millie and Jacinta?
Are there any new characters joining the gang in the movie?

October 5, 2019 at 8:44 am

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hi Stephanie,

    Sep is the same age as Lucas who is a little bit older than Jacinta (about 18 months). I think the boy you’re referring to is Lucas. There aren’t really any new characters in the movie from what I can remember.

    That’s great you enjoy the books – thank you!


    December 4, 2019 at 9:59 am



I can not wait to seee the movie. Will definitely go as soon as it’s out

Kyla, want to go with me when it’s out? I know you want go. Happy late birthday present for you and happy early birthday for me

October 7, 2019 at 9:36 am

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Woohoo! Hope I might see you at one of the special screenings.

      YOU inspired me to write a series. The series is called the Human Invasion. We are writing the third and second books at the moment.
      Only 3 of us are writing and I am one of them. Kyla is drawing the cover. We are only children!

      October 29, 2019 at 5:14 am



Hi Jacqueline!

I’ve read your books for a while and are loving them!

One question:
How old is Chessie, Caprice and Sep?

October 7, 2019 at 3:00 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hi Stephanie,

    Thank you for your kind words. It depends where you are up to as to the ages of the others. Basically when the books begin AM is 7 and a quarter and Millie is ten – so almost three years older than AM. I am pretty sure that Sep is a year older than his sister Sloane (who is also 10 at the start). Caprice and Chessie are the same age as Millie throughout and Jacinta is a year older than them. Now I’m confusing myself!

    Best wishes,

    October 23, 2019 at 11:35 am



Mrs Harvey,
I am so excited! I have been waiting for this for ages. I adore all your books because the sense of mystery in them all is thrilling! I came to the Kensy and Max Book 2 book launch and my parents said no more but i convinced them to let me come to this! I am always waiting for another one of your books!

Hello Mrs.Harvey!
I’m Sara, a HUGE fan of your books! I am so excited for the movie!! I just wanted to ask whether this movie will be available to other countries other than Australia when it comes out? It’s because I am from New Zealand and I really want to see this movie when it releases. Thanks!
Best wishes!
Sara 🙂

October 12, 2019 at 10:00 am

    Hi Sara,

    I am fairly certain AM is going to NZ in the cinemas too but I will investigate more.

Thank you Elia – I so appreciate your support and that’s very kind to tell your friends. I’m thrilled that you enjoy the books and hopefully you’ll get to read Kensy and Max now too.

Best wishes,

Jacqueline Harvey


Hi Jessica,

Thanks for your wonderful words! I am excited about the movie too. Where do you live? Hopefully you will get the movie as well but if you let me know where you are I can investigate. Alice-Miranda Keeps the Beat is all about the teachers at school being in a strange fight and a huge drama in the village. There is a new teacher – not sure if you should trust her or not and AM and her friends decide to do something amazing to help a family in desperate need.

Baby Aggie is cuteness personified!

Hi Snix,

Thank you for your gorgeous words. I’m so thrilled that you enjoy the stories – that makes me want to keep writing them forever! I love that you see yourself in Sloane in the trailer. I would love to visit Pakistan – it sounds like an incredible country so you never know.

Best wishes,

October 23, 2019 at 11:16 am



Dear Jacqueline,
The Alice-Miranda movie is here at last! I just can’t wait to see it.
The trailer’s amazing, watching it made me hang out for it even more! The animation and all the voices of the characters are fantastic, and just as I envisioned them when reading the books.
I have tickets booked for November, and I’m really looking forward to seeing how it incorporates the books in the series.
Can’t wait!
Love Meera

I know I keep asking, and you’re probably sick of me by now… but is there any more news on AM 19?

October 25, 2019 at 8:09 pm



    Yeah, I’m pretty curious to know too. An Aussie adventure, finally! I can tell Mrs. Harvey is going to have fun with
    this <3

    October 26, 2019 at 4:02 am

      It’s called Alice-Miranda in the Outback but I haven’t started it yet. Soon! Lots of mystery and adventure as always.

        When you were at the scribblers fest in Clarmont, Western suburbs, Perth, 2019 you said that their was another book coming out but I couldn’t remember what the title was.

        March 27, 2020 at 10:28 am



Dear Ms. Harvey,
It’s absolutely great the movie is coming out! The trailer is positively amazing! Congratulations for being short-listed for the younger readers YABBA awards. It was a close call and i still think you should have won, although i have not read any of Ms Wang’s books, i’m sure she’s a brilliant writer just like you. It was wonderful to meet you in person and i hope we get to meet again. Please give Ms. Murrell my regards. And congratulations on the movie as well! Quick question, will there be a movie on every one of the Alice-Miranda books? Could you also perhaps make a children’s Tv show for the Clementine-Rose series? I’ve just gotten my sister into reading them and she loves it!

October 30, 2019 at 7:32 pm



Will my daughter and I need to get any tickets if we would like to meet-and-sign? We are planning a trip to Miranda on the 10th, travelling from Birrong. We plan to watch the movie at Burwood.

November 3, 2019 at 1:48 am

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hi Linn,

    I don’t believe that you will need tickets to meet me for the book signing. I will check with my publisher tomorrow but I can’t imagine so as it will be outside in the theatre foyer.

    Best wishes and looking forward to meeting you.

Hi Jacqueline,
Just wondering if there is only one day of the screening am friends forever, cuz my friend said there was three then my bff told me there was one. I need to do a flower basket dance on the day that am friends forever comes out in SA, so I might miss it…

November 4, 2019 at 9:46 pm



Hi ms. Harvey,
I am 11 and 3 quarters years old. I’ve read ALL OF YOUR ABSOLUTELY BRILLIANT BOOKS and I am IN LOVE with them, especially Alice- Miranda. I am your biggest ever fan! I can tell from just how you write and look that you are just as wonderful as your books! I’m so excited to watch Alice- Miranda friends forever! You know, I look quite a bit like Sloane Sykes from this trailer. I was thinking about your next Alice- Miranda book, book 19. Please could you add a few more Lucinta moments? Ummm… I want to suggest something, but it’s completely up to you if you don’t want to! It’s this: I really would like Alice- Miranda to go to Pakistan, because it is my parents country and I really love it. It’s very beautiful. It also has quite a few interesting landmarks and icons! But if you don’t want to, it’s completely fine!
Love from Mahum

November 5, 2019 at 5:10 pm

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hello – I hope that you’ve been able to watch the movie. I’m going to be at the Blacktown Drive In in Sydney this Saturday night for a special screening. Pakistan sounds like an amazing country and I would love to go there one day. The next Alice-Miranda book is going to be set in Australia in the outback :).

Dear Jacqueline,
I have seen Kensy and Max free-fall on the shelf’s is the book shops in Perth but it always says that they are just for viewing but that might just be in the Western suburbs although it is the subiaco library but it’s closed. i can’t wait for Christmas when mum said she’ll buy it for me!

March 27, 2020 at 10:22 am

Hi Jacqueline

I got Kensy and Max Freefall for my birthday and just finished it . Did they find out who was trying ti kill them? I couldn’t tell.

To Jacqueline Harvey,

Hi’m so excited to see the movie! Will it be able to be purchased on DvD? If so, when will, that come out?

I’m so excited to read book 19, AMHSKJ in the Outback. Will I be able to purchase it at Dymocks ?

If you’re going to make more movies, maybe you could make one for each book? I’d buy all of them and still continue to read the Alice Miranda series a thousand times over. I’m on my twelfth time of reading it!

September 6, 2020 at 8:02 am

    Jacqueline Harvey


    Hi Kiara,

    The Alice-Miranda movie is available on STAN and 9NOW. I hope you enjoy Alice-Miranda in the Outback!

    There is a new animated movie in the making, however, it has been delayed due to the current circumstances.

    Happy reading,
