I love Miranda and so will you – Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl

Miranda has a Big Imagination, and always wins Word of the Day at school. When her sister Gemma is taken into hospital, Miranda escapes into her own fantasy land, Magnanimous. With giraffe police, ham sandwich trees and a Crystal-Clear Glass Hospital for Getting-Better Children, Magnanimous grows and grows. As her sister gets worse, things Miranda writes seem to trigger small miracles she has been asking for: her gran stops smoking, horrible Darren Hoey is nice to her

… Can Miranda write a miracle for her sister?

A lovely celebration of the power of the imagination, and of determination, with a strong lead character whose voice shines through the pages of the book, encouraging us all to think more creatively.

Parents In Touch

I defy any reader not to love this positive story and narrator Miranda's trenchant, witty, and vulnerable voice along with it. We love Siobhan Parkinson in these 'ere parts and in Miraculous Miranda, she's given us another little jewel of a middle grade novel.

The Bookbag

Parkinson has a flavour all her own. Miranda is a loveable, flawed, sympathetic narrator. In a sea of mostly mawkish young adult novels about cancer, Parkinson's frank take for younger readers is a breath of fresh Irish air
