Clementine Rose and the Ballet Break-in (#8)
Ballet fever has hit Penberthy Floss! Clementine Rose is over the moon. Her ballet lessons have finally begun, and Clementine's class has been invited to dance at the reopening of the village hall. There is lots to learn, and Clemmie is eager to get onstage and twirl with her friends! But not everything is going to plan. At school there is trouble with Angus and Joshua, and on the day of the big ballet performance, disaster strikes! Will Clementine find a way for the show to go on?
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.
