Alice-Miranda at School
Can one tiny girl change a very big school?
Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kennington-Jones is waving goodbye to her weeping parents and starting her first day at boarding school. But something is wrong at Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale Academy for Proper Young Ladies. The headmistress, Miss Grimm, hasn’t been seen for ten years. The prize-winning flowers are gone. And a mysterious stranger is camping in the greenhouse.
Alice-Miranda must complete a series of impossible tests.
Can she really beat the meanest, most spoilt girl at school in a solo sailing mission? Could she camp in the forest all on her own for five whole days and nights? Well, of course. This is Alice-Miranda; after all.
Alice-Miranda on Holiday
Mystery and adventure await at Highton Hall
Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kennington-Jones has survived her first term at Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale. And now Jacinta Headlington-Bear, the school’s second best tantrum thrower, is joining Alice-Miranda’s family for long term break. Who would have thought it!
The two girls are looking forwards to a relaxing holiday. But a cranky boy is causing mischief, a movie start has come to visit and a stranger is snooping about. Add a naughty pony, a hint of romance and a dastardly cheme, and Jacinta and Alice-Miranda might have a more exciting time than they were expecting…
Alice-Miranda Takes The Lead
Alice-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 Sykes, and her pushy mother, September. September 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.
Alice-Miranda at Sea
Alice-Miranda is set for a luxurious cruise aboard the royal yacht Octavia, where Aunty Gee is hosting the wedding of Aunt Charlotte and Lawrence Ridley. Even Ambrosia Headlington-Bear has come along, much to her daughter Jacinta’s surprise. Wild weather and rumours of a jewel thief throw the travellers into turmoil, but something else is giving Alice-Miranda one of her strange feelings. Why does the ship’s doctor look so familiar? And who is the shy blond boy hiding in one of the suites. When Alice-Miranda seeks help from an unexpected source, will they manage to set things to rights in time for the celebrations?
Alice-Miranda in New York
Alice-Miranda is in bustling New York City. It’s a blur of skyscrapers, hot dog carts, chats with zoo animals and classes at Mrs Kimmel’s School for Girls, right next to glorious Central Park. Her family’s glamorous department store, Highton’s on Fifth, has been renovated but plans for the fabulous re-opening party are going curiously wrong. Is that why her father Hugh seems so worried? And why is her new friend Lucinda so shy about inviting Alice-Miranda home?
Only Alice-Miranda could solve these and other riddles and still find time to take in the sights, sounds and tastes of the city.
Alice-Miranda Shows The Way
Alice-Miranda has a birthday to celebrate and a village show to look forward to! One of the highlights of the Winchesterfield show is the Queen’s Cup horserace. But Aunty Gee’s prize racehorse, Rockstar, is refusing to leave the stables. That is until Alice-Miranda introduces him to her own naughty pony, Bonaparte.
Preparations for the show are coming along well until a series of thefts rocks the community. Things quickly go from bad to worse when Alice-Miranda’s beloved Bony is horse-napped. Can Alice-Miranda uncover the culprit and get her horse back in time for Rockstar to compete in the race?Read more
