Praise for Violet's first adventure!

'Whitehorn's debut is pacey and imaginative and Becka Moor's illustrations a delight. Perfect for readers who liked the Ottoline books by Chris Riddell' Times

'Sherlock better watch out, 'cos Violet's about!' Wondrous Reads

Meet Violet Remy-Robinson, an amateur Sherlock Holmes in the making...

Violet has spent her holidays exploring India with Godmother Celeste, including visiting Celeste's good friend the Maharajah and meeting his very special cockatoo. But when she returns home, Violet gets a surprise visit from the Maharajah's butler, asking her to look after the bird. Violet couldn't be more amazed (and her cat Pudding couldn't be less pleased...), but the cockatoo holds the key to the Maharajah's fortune, and someone is trying to bird-nap her! Can Violet discover who the culprit is before they succeed?

With a beautiful hardback package complete with two colour illustrations throughout by emerging talent, Becka Moore, everyone is bound to fall in love with Violet and the colourful characters that make up her world. Perfect for fans of Dixie O'Day, Ottolineand Goth Girl.

This book is about a girl called Violet who has to solve an Indian mystery. The story is funny throughout.  Violet is a lovely character, she is very caring and helps her friends when they are in danger. She also makes me laugh a lot!!  I love the illustrations and the colour purple that is used on all the pages. The book cover is amazing and I think it is a perfect present for a friend, to keep.   I give this book five stars because I really enjoyed reading it and I can't wait to read more of Violets fantastic stories.

This book is about a girl called Violet Rose and a naughty woman called Angel.  Angel steals a very precious bird that Violet is looking after.  The bird is called Maharani. It holds a very important secret to some treasure. I like it because it is an adventure book.
