Pretty in pink, Alice-Miranda's 2014 diary is a marvellous Christmas or birthday gift for a young fan. It is the most positively perfect diary you'll ever need!
The diary is brimming with opportunities to fill in sections on About Me, My Faves, add photos to My Family, and think about being grateful. Being a friend is an important quality of Alice-Miranda's and there are guidelines on being a good friend. After the address book and birthday reminders a fabulous recipe section is included. Picnics, lunches and weekend meals are an important part of Alice-Miranda and her friends' life. Nana Jones's Marble Cake and Alice-Miranda's favourite Devil's Food Cake are two of the scrumptious recipes included.
A trivia quiz and 'Who said what' section provide opportunities to test the fan's knowledge, there's even a quiz to find out which Alice-Miranda character you are like. Before the diary starts there's so much to read and record; an extensive academy enrolment form for the WDA, a find-a-word puzzle, a page to record books to read and places to visit. This is a real treasure trove. The diary pages with a one week spread are sprinkled with fun designs, book characters, quotations and some affirmations.
A wonderful present for Alice-Miranda fans from eight years of age.
