A touching new tale of hope and miracles from the award-winning Siobhan Parkinson.

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?

We are Rated Excellent on Trustpilot
Here's what you say about us...

Siobhn Parkinson is a novelist and one of Ireland's best-known writers for children. In 2010 she was appointed Ireland's first Children's Laureate and has written dozens of novels for children, young people and even a couple for adults. Her most recent are Bruised and its companion novel, Heart Shaped, for young teenagers. She is also a translator (from German) and she runs Little Island, a small children's publishing house. She lives in Dublin with a nice husband and a large computer. She is visually impaired, so she 'reads' mostly audiobooks.

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.

...there is no shortage of empathy here; Parkinson writes to rather than at children, alongside rather than for them.
Irish Times - Claire Hennessy

Full of thought-provoking and touching little moments, it's a feel good book with a difference.
Read it Daddy - Phil May

Miranda is a gorgeous character with a magnificent turn of phrase
Inis

What a lovely book! Siobhn Parkinson's Miraculous Miranda is a feel-good and funny novel
Bookwitch

Miranda is such a vibrant heroine ... Parkinson writes to rather than at children, alongside rather than for them
Irish Times Weekend Review

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
The Times Saturday Review - Alex O'Connell

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.
