Children's Literature - Justina Engebretson
Set sail for a grand adventure aboard the Royal Yacht Octavia, where Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kennington-Jones and her family and close friends have been invited to attend Aunt Charlotte and Lawrence’s wedding. Soon after boarding the grand ship, Alice-Miranda gets one of her strange feelings. Something is not right. The ship’s kitchen is much too quiet. Dr. Lush is secretly looking for a missing woman, and Alice-Miranda stumbles upon a very shy boy named Neville, who refuses to let go of his trumpet case. Then, Lady Adams jewels go missing, as well as several others. Will Alice-Miranda be able to unravel the mysteries in time to save the wedding and maybe even the Queen’s life? Full of humor and intrigue, book four of the “Alice-Miranda” series is sure to capture the interest of elementary-aged children, both boys and girls and those who are already fans of the series. Alice-Miranda is a charming, precocious young lady, with a proper British vocabulary that will delight readers young and old. The plot is action driven, packed with all the mysteries that accompany stowaways, mistaken identities, and suspicious characters. Overall, this book is a delightfully entertaining read.
