We were lucky enough here at "Just One More Paragraph" to catch Alison between adventures, and after a bit of persuading, she agreed to an interview. Our reporter, Miss B., being somewhat of an adventure nut herself, suggested going on a hike with Alison and enjoying the day while having a nice chance to talk.
Miss B. and Alison spent some time looking over the map and decided what would be the best trail to take.
They hiked through dense forest.
Look! Alison found a 4-leaf clover. It must be her lucky day!
They found a cute little toad house. Looks like it might be in use... Be careful Alison.
Wonder what kind of creatures live in here?
What?!! Alison found another 4-leaf clover? Wonder why she would need all that luck?!
Speaking of lucky - look at that luscious strawberry Alison found! Mmmmmmmm.......
Wonder if these things are dangerous. They certainly look like they are mutants of some sort!
OH NO!!! Look out Alison! That shadow looks really, really dangerous!!!!
Alison climbs a huge bush....
And sneaks behind a fence.
She peeks through a hole to find the elephant on the other side!
With grace and stealth, she makes it to the top of the tower.
She then shimmies along the high wire in attempt to escape the elephant.... Meanwhile, Miss B. searches all over for Alison, but finds no trace of her anywhere.
Leaving Miss B. without her interview and a long walk home alone.

About the books (and Alison, too!)
Alison Dare: Indiana Jones meets Lara Croft in fabulous, graphic adventures.Alison Dare is not your typical twelve-year-old. She's the daughter of an archaeologist/adventurer and the masked hero known as the Blue Scarab. To top it off, she's also the niece of an international super-spy; it's no surprise that a craving for danger is in her blood! Unfortunately, her parents have locked her away at the prestigious St. Joan's Academy for Girls, hoping that this would lead to a more "normal" life for their daughter.
But despite all the strict rules at the school, Alison and her best pals - Wendy and Dot - somehow manage to find themselves involved in adventures that rival those of Alison's globetrotting, planet-saving relatives. Whether it's magic genies, super-powered bank robbers, or a dastardly baron bent on world domination, Alison Dare delivers the best thrills since Indiana Jones and more action than Lara Croft!
