World Book Review: Alice-Miranda in the Alps by Jacqueline Harvey

alice-miranda-in-the-alps-193x300

For the first World Book Review of the new year, I picked a children’s chapter book set in snowy Switzerland. It’s the perfect read for kids living in a wintry climate, especially young skiers or those that love the snow. Alice-Miranda in the Alps (book twelve in the Alice-Miranda series) by Australian author Jacqueline Harvey simply charms readers from beginning to end with its lovely characters, grand old hotels and a glimpse of European society. The ski town of Zermatt, where much of the story takes place, is beautifully described through its history, events and architecture. The setting and the depth of details about this stunning part of the world make this a wonderul children’s book.

Reviewed for the Children’s Book Council of Australia, I can’t give away all the details here, but my full review can be found on the Reading Time website

Absolutely recommended!
