Alice-Miranda At Sea.


This is Alice-Miranda.And Millie, Jacinta, Sep and Lucas. Who are these kids? Where are they from? Yes, this is Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kentington-Jones. From the book series Alice-Miranda.

Remember when I wrote a post about CAFE and Daily 5, and about reading strategies.Well, my reading strategy is ‘Predict and Confirm meaning.’ Predict and confirm’ meaning means try to predict a part of the book and then when you get to it, confirm the answer if it’s right or not.

Now back to Alice-Miranda. So far the book has been fantastic and exciting.Alice-Miranda and friends have so far seen and played with Lucas and Sep, two nice boys and,   Lucas a good cousin to Alice-Miranda. Their little gang have explored the ship together, searching for Jacinta’s parents. On the way they meet The head chef, Vladimir   who was very scary, hated children and was really strict indeed.They have also met Neville, a shy, young little child who wants to get to America, to see his parents.

 My predictions are that they have a BBQ on the royal deck, meet and talk to Jacnta’s parents and meet and play with Neville again. If you like the sound of the book, you can go to Alice-Miranda’s website or the author’s website:

    Hi Josie,
    I really enjoy the Alice Miranda books, even though I have never really read the series I have snuck into honeys book and read some of the text from her book every now and then.
    I think Alice mMranda is very independent and very mature.
    what do you think of her????
    From Jo 🙂 :p

    Dear Josie,

    Great review for Alice-Miranda books. I think I will have to take one home over the summer holidays and read one.

    You are doing such a fantastic job at your predict and confirm strategy and love to see you posting about it here. I know you said that Neville was introduced in the book early on, why do you think he will make a reappearance? Do you think anything exciting will happen when he does?

    What do you think will be the huge tension scene in the book? What could it possibly be building up to?

    I look forward to your confirming and finding out what happens myself.
    Yours in blogging,
    Mrs Murphy

      Hi Mrs Murphy,
      I defently will bring one at summer, I will read it with my hearts content! 😀
      I don’t know what the huge tension will be, but that makes it a bit more exciting!
      I have read two whole books so far, Alice-Miranda at school(1) and Alice-Miranda at Hoildays(2).
      My favourite is Alice-Miranda at Hoildays, you meet so many charaters and settings!
      I think that when they meet Neville Jacnta will be surprised because I just found out that Neville’s last name is Helington-Bear, the same as Jacinta!
      Alice-Miranda is probaly my favourite seris!
      What’s yours?
      From your class mate,
      Josie. 😀

      Hi Jessica,
      That’s fine, you don’t have to like the same book and have the same goal as someone else!:)
      I think I’m up to page 110, at least.I think I’m up to the back fill or probably the plot devloment.
      My goal is predict and Confirm meaning.
      ‘We can be heraos Criss Cross’ sounds intresting, what’s it about? I have read a little bit of Tashi at home, it’s a good story but it’s not a good fit book!
      Which book do you like reading the most?
      From your class mate,
      Josie 😀

    Hi Jessica,
    We can be Heros sounds so cool, what’s it about?

    Dear Josie,

    I just came across your blog and I wanted to say thank you for your very kind words about Alice-Miranda. I love writing her adventures and it’s great to hear from the readers. I’ve just finished writing Alice-Miranda In Paris which is her 7th adventure and am currently working on a new series about a little girl called Clementine Rose. I hope you have lots of time to read in the holidays – there are so many wonderful books!

    Have a fantastic Christmas and an amazing 2013.

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline Harvey 🙂

      Hi Jacqueline,
      Thanks sooooooooooooo much for commenting on my blog! I want to be an author when I older, so this is so exciting!!!! 😀
      Alice-Miranda In Paris soundds exciting, it sounds like a great book in the series. I have finished Alice-Miranda at sea, and for Christmas I want the fifth. My favourite Alice-Miranda would be the second, Alice-Miranda on Holidays. What’s your’s?
      Clementine Rose sounds like a great book, and name. I absolutely love the names that you come up with for your books, they are so cute and kind’a repesent.
      What’s Clementine Rose about?
      From your friend,
      Josie. 😀
      PS. You don’t have to tell me what Clenmetine Rose is about incase you want it a surprise.

      Dear Jacqueline Harvey,

      There was great excitement in our class this morning when we found out that a REAL author had contacted one of our students. You have made not only her day, but many others in our grade! We really appreciate you taking the time out of your busy writing to write to some of your avid Alice-Miranda readers.

      Your books keep many of our students very engaged in reading and they love going through the twists and turns that her adventures take. We look forward to your next books and will have to order them for our school library.

      We would love to hear if you have any advice for our young writers? We have many that do aspire to be authors!

      Thanks again for taking the time to write to us.
      Mrs Murphy

    Dear Mrs Murphy, Josie and Classmates,

    It is a pleasure talking to you. I understand that many of you are aspiring writers. Today must be the last day of term so for the holidays, here’s some advice to get your stories going. Keep a notebook handy and write down things that make you laugh, reflections on places you go, descriptions of interesting people or events. I always have notebooks with me and if I didn’t write things down I would never remember. Ask ‘what if?’ a lot. You can always get a story from that. So what if you had walked into the classroom this morning and Mrs Murphy had transformed into Santa Claus and she said that she had to go – but she needed some help – what next? or what if you left home this morning and said goodbye to your parents and everything was normal but when you walked home in the afternoon there was a big For Sale sign in your yard and across the middle it said SOLD and when you went to go inside the locks had changed and everything was gone! Anyway, just some ideas to get you started. I hope that you are enjoying Alice-Miranda and my new series Clementine Rose. Have a great holiday and a fantastic Christmas. Josie asked me which of the Alice-Miranda books was my favourite – that’s too hard to answer as I love them all for different reasons. You can find out all about Clementine Rose at

    Best wishes,
    Jacqueline Harvey 🙂

      Hi Jacquline,
      Thanks for all that advice. You can have alot of idea’s from just writing on a notebook. I never thought about that before.
      Thanks for that website address, I’ll check it out after I write this comment. Clementine Rose sounds so exciting, like Alice-Miranda
      Do you like my teacher Mrs Murphy? That replyed to you? I sure do! If she replys to you again, don’t be afrad to reply back. Oh, and when we get in our classes next year, you might have ALOT of people replying to you, so be readdy
      We hope you have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
      Has the questuin ‘What if’ helped you to make a story, a real one?
      From your friend,
      Josie. 😀
