AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When Alice-Miranda, Millie and Jacinta all get a chance to travel to Japan to make the most of the last few weeks of school holidays, they are in for a fascinating treat. The Highton-Smith-Kennington-Jones housekeeper has been invited to present a paper at an important innovation conference in Tokyo on her Just Add Water (JAW) food creation but she is even more interested in her newest invention, and vows to try it out while overseas.

'Alice-Miranda gets embroiled in an elaborate missing persons hunt when she is given a gift from her father that confuses the would-be trackers. Things come to a head when the tourists get an invitation to attend dinner at the Royal Palace in Tokyo, and the plans of a jealous sister begin to unravel, with startling consequences.' (Publisher's blurb)
