It's time for a wedding at Penberthy House! Clementine Rose is thrilled! There s a giant tent in the back garden and guests arriving by the car load. A wedding at Penberthy House is just the thing her mother needs to help pay for the much needed new roof. But amid the excitement Uncle Digby falls ill, an invitation goes astray and, to everyone s horror, Aunt Violet is left in charge. All those beautifully wrapped parcels give Clementine a great idea but will she find the perfect present in time?
Jacqueline Harvey's bestselling Alice-Miranda series began as an idea for a picture book but it soon became apparent that this perpetually positive seven-and-a-quarter-year-old had a lot more to say. The series has been sold to the United States, United Kingdom, Indonesia and Turkey and has been shortlisted for children's book awards in Australia. Her first and only picture book, The Sound of the Sea was an Honour Book in the 2006 Children's Book Council Awards. Jacqueline has spent most of her working life teaching in girls' boarding schools and has been a Deputy Head and Director of Development. She is passionate about improving educational outcomes for Indigenous students. Jacqueline lives in Sydney with her husband Ian and is currently working on more Alice-Miranda and Clementine Rose adventures.
