Alice-Miranda is in for some tres chic sightseeing, singing, and fashion in Paris
Alice-Miranda and her friends are in Paris with a group of teachers from Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale and the Fayle School for Boys. The students have a very exciting opportunity: to sing at Paris Fashion Week. The amazing city is humming with excitement and outrageous fashion choices--quite often coming from Mr. Lipp, the children's choir conductor. But a couple of France's best known designers are harboring serious secrets, and when Christian Fontaine has some expensive fabric stolen just days before his show, Alice-Miranda and her friends realize there is a darker side to the glitz and glamour of the famous city.
Jacqueline Harvey has spent her working life teaching in girls' boarding schools. She is pleased to say that she has never yet encountered a headmistress like Miss Grimm, but she has come across quite a few girls who remind her a little of Alice-Miranda. Jacqueline has published six novels for young readers. Her first picture book, THE SOUND OF THE SEA, was awarded Honour Book in the 2006 CBC Awards. She is currently working on Alice-Miranda's next adventure.
