The action is slower than in some books, but you love the people in the story so much that it hardly matters.

Synopsis

Girls who are fans of Judy Moody, Matilda and Clementine will love Alice-Miranda, the  precocious and endearing heroine whose adventures continue in book #2 of the Alice-Miranda series. 

Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kennington-Jones has survived her first semester at boarding school. Now she's headed home for break—and she's invited Jacinta Headlington-Bear, the school's second-best tantrum thrower, to join her. The two girls are looking forward to a fun mini-vacation. Nothing too eventful! But a cranky boy is causing mischief, a movie star has come to visit, and a stranger is snooping around. Add a naughty pony, a hint of romance, and a dastardly scheme, and Jacinta and Alice-Miranda might have a more exciting time than they ever expected. . . .


From the Hardcover edition.

Alice-Miranda On Holiday is a rollicking modern Enid Blyton type story full of adults being silly (silly adults!), kids eating glorious sounding meals, and (metaphorical) red herrings sprinkled liberally throughout it to keep you guessing as to what’s going on.
