Novel way to spend the morning
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.
