Product Description
 
Alice-Miranda and her friends have been invited to attend the Queen's Colours inaugural leadership program in Scotland and they just might be joined by a few familiar faces from around the globe. There are plenty of skills to be learned and challenges to conquer, and the excitement could be enough to push some over the edge.

Luckily, there is plenty to divert the students' attention including a surprise encounter on Loch Ness. Could it be the region's mythical monster? Little do they know it's the real monster in their midst they should be worried about. In this rollicking adventure, Alice-Miranda must draw upon all her wits to lead her friends to safety while, of course, making a few new friends along the way.Alice-Miranda and her friends have been invited to attend the Queen's Colours inaugural leadership program in Scotland and they just might be joined by a few familiar faces from around the globe.

Jacqueline Harvey worked in schools for many years but has had a passion for storytelling since she was a child.

She is the author of the popular Alice-Miranda and Clementine Rose series, which have sold over one million copies in Australia alone. Her books have received numerous short-listings and awards while her picture book, The Sound of the Sea, was a CBCA Honour Book.

Jacqueline speaks to thousands of young people at schools and festivals around the world, and says the characters in her books are often made up of the best bits of children she's met over the years. While she is not a twin, like Kensy and Max she does have excellent powers of observation and has always thought she'd make a great spy.

Jacqueline lives in Sydney and is currently working on more Kensy and Max, Alice-Miranda and Clementine Rose adventures.
