Random House, 2014. ISBN 9780857984104
Highly recommended. With a pastel green striped and spotted cover Alice-Miranda is back with her 2015 diary. What a wonderful Christmas or birthday gift for a young fan. It is the most spectacularly special diary you'll ever use!
Once again, the diary is full of fill-in sections about families, friends, parties, there's 5 things to be grateful for, an opportunity to say thanks and of course delicious recipes. The Easy Rocky Road is a simple recipe this would make a great present for someone special. Friends play an important role in Alice-Miranda's life and a Friend Finder page is included. Games, puzzles, simple French and Japanese phrases and a page to list your goals for 2015, conclude the first section of the diary.
The colourful diary pages are delightful, with a one week spread, quotes from characters, fun coloured designs and images, affirmations and suggestions for living a positive life. The diary ends with pages for notes, a checklist of Alice-Miranda books read and the suggestion of two more to come in 2015.
Thank you Jacqui Harvey for another wonderful diary, a must-have for fans. A delightful present for Alice-Miranda readers from eight years of age.
Rhyllis Bignell (an Alice-Miranda fan too!)
