Namanya Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith-Kennington-Jones, umurnya baru tujuh seperempat tahun, murid baru di Akademi Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale untuk Perempuan Muda Baik-baik, tapi kelakuan dan cara bicaranya tidak seperti anak tujuh tahun. Setiap melihat orang disekitarnya ada yang bersedih, marah, kesal, dia akan melakukan apapun yang dia bisa untuk membuat orang itu bahagia kembali.. Dia percaya diri, pandai...more

Alice-Miranda at School is a cute story about a spunky girl who’s seven-and-a-quarter, not quite old enough to attend Winchesterfield-Downsfordvale Academy for Proper Young Ladies. This, and her brazen, curious personality, changes the school forever. Finding the state of the school entirely unacceptable, she faces off with the headmistress, Miss Grimm, who hasn’t been seen on campus for ten years, she befriends the second best tantrum thrower of the school, and touches the heart of every staff...more

I am not sure how to write about this book. It is so utterly unbelievable it is more like a fairy tale cloaked in a realistic story. Or maybe it is a parody of British boarding schools. The repetition in the story reminds me of beginning chapter books for emerging readers (grades 2-3) but the bullying seems older and the narrator is a first grader who sounds more mature than most adults. She is a genius but developmentally too advanced for her age. So... let the fairy tale begin...

Once upon a ti...more

Karakter yang diciptakan dengan banyak kelebihan hingga nyaris sempurna sering kali membuat dahi berkerut. Gambaran betapa istimewa dan beruntungnya mereka kerap kali membuat saya tidak dapat menikmati kisah yang tertuang dalam buku tersebut. Bukannya iri tapi lebih karena keberadaan mereka terlalu indah untuk menjadi kenyaatan. Bahkan di buku sekalipun. Namun pengecualian untuk Alice-Miranda At School. Buku yang bercerita tentang anak perempuan yang berusia tujuh tahun di Sekolah Akademi Winche...more

(B&N) Alice-Miranda is a spunky character with the most optimistic outlook on everything. Reading the story, it is impossible to not be happy. Alice can't wait to start boarding school and begins early. Of course, she has to suffer through a bully, a headmistress who has locked herself away from her students due to a tragic event years before, and, of course, three unbelievable tests to prove that she belongs at the boarding school. In the process, Alice learns why Miss Grimm is so mean, def...more

Alice Miranda at School is a manipulatively cute book. It tries to be "cute" and "charming" and "delightful" and "amusing" and "endearing" on almost every single page. It tries to fit a certain mold in its storytelling.

Alice Miranda, our heroine, is seven. She wants to attend a certain boarding school. Even though she's a good six months younger than most of the other beginning students. Eight is usual age, after all. Alice Miranda has to be the most intuitive child on the planet. She can "read...more

A very cute book. Yes Alice-Miranda is totally unbelievable but as the author says, she is a mix of many girls and it is fiction and a children's story to boot. The big bad wolf is unbelievable too . . . I enjoyed this book because it was sweet, well written and like Alice-Miranda made me smile.

Helen Fairfield
Really sweet book (first in a series) for 7+ with a bit more depth than meets the eye. Alice-Miranda starts boarding school and solves all the adults' problems with her endless optimism and good nature.

si Alice-Miranda ini menginggatkanku akan Polly Madasa (kalo ga salah) sama-sama sok dewasa dan suka mencampuri urusan orang lain, tapi lebih suka buku ini karena konfliknya lumayan banyak :))
Anni
saya membaca buku ini dua kali dalam 2 hari. Seandainya kita semua bisa berpikir baik tentang orang lain seperti Alice-Miranda, alangkah damainya hidup ini. Buku yang benar-benar menarik.
Katherine
a refreshingly optimistic main character. A glass-half full kinda gal Alice-Miranda goes through life changing people for the better- and all without becoming annoying!

I read this book a few years ago. It was a present so I decided to give the book ago. I've only read the first one but it is really good.

Found the lead character too annoying to make it an especially fun read. Maybe I'm just too old?

Alice-Miranda Highton-Smith Kennington-Jones is the kind of seven-year-old girl you'd just love to hate - if only you could. Her absolutely genuine, seemingly bottomless kindness to everyone she meets & her apparent immunity to the nastiness of others make you think you'd like to at least get sick from the sweetness, if not retaliate by pulling her hair, but she's just too genuine, & no one can help but fall absolutely in love with her. This is proved over & over at her new boarding...more
