Novel way to spend the morn­ing

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SCHOOLS -

MALT­MAN’S Green School wel­comed chil­dren’s au­thor Jac­que­line Har­vey on Mon­day af­ter­noon (Septem­ber 28).

The Aus­tralian au­thor has writ­ten many nov­els for younger read­ers and a pic­ture book, The Sound of the Sea, which was awarded Hon­our Book in the 2006 Aus­tralian Chil­dren’s Book Coun­cil Awards.

She has also taught in in­fant and pri­mary schools, and was deputy head of an in­de­pen­dent day and board­ing school for girls in Syd­ney, Aus­tralia, for seven and a half years be­fore tak­ing up the po­si­tion of di­rec­tor of de­vel­op­ment there.

In late 2012 she be­came a full time writer and speaker and now writes the pop­u­lar Alice-Mi­randa books, with its re­cently launched spin off se­ries about a girl called Cle­men­tine Rose.

The Chor­ley­wood Bookshop ar­ranged school vis­its with Jac­que­line dur­ing her 2013 UK tour and is also re­spon­si­ble for ac­com­pa­ny­ing her school vis­its this time.

The girls were de­lighted be­cause she stayed be­hind to sell and sign copies of her books.
