Synopsis

Violet Mackerel's Remarkable Recovery by Anna Branford, Sam Wilson

This is a new character series for 6-9s featuring the funny, quirky Violet Mackerel - a girl with a mission to think outside the box.

Violet Mackerel has to have her tonsils out; but she will get to eat lots of ice-cream afterwards. She intends to make a very remarkable recovery after hospital and probably even end up singing opera on the radio. Using her Theory of Giving Small Things Violet makes a new friend in the waiting room - but how will she find her again afterwards?

This series reflects the current movement for happiness philosophy - creative, environmentally-aware kids make their own fun - and chaos! Visit our associated website to find more Violet things to make and do! Other series titles include: Violet Mackerel's Brilliant Plot (2012); Violet Mackerel's Natural Habitat (2013). Book 4 will follow in 2013.

Reviews

'Recommended for girls aged five and up who enjoy their books with a hint of quirkiness and a large dollop of imagination.' - Clare Hingston, Bookseller & Publisher

About the Author

Anna Branford was born on the Isle of Man, but spent her childhood in Sudan, Papua New Guinea and Australia. Once, when she was very itchy with the chicken pox, her dad read her the Very Hungry Caterpillar thirty times in a row. Anna lectures in Sociology at Victoria University, Australia, and spends her evenings writing children's stories, kept company by a furry black cat called Florence. She also makes dolls using recycled fabric and materials. Sam Wilson graduated from Kingston University in 1999. The Violet Mackerel books are the first titles she has illustrated for children. She says, It has been such fun drawing Violet, she is a gorgeous character with such an adventurous spirit. Sam lives in the Staffordshire countryside.
