Synopsis

Violet Mackerel's Natural Habitat by Anna Branford

A character series for 6-9s featuring the funny, quirky Violet Mackerel - a girl with a mission to think outside the box. After making friends with an indoor sparrow at the shopping centre, Violet develops her Theory of Helping Small Things (if you do something to help a small thing, it will find a way of helping you back). Her sister Nicola (who is always grumpy) is working on a natural science project, so Violet decides to study a ladybird called Small Gloria. When things turn disastrous for Nicola, Violet and Small Gloria, they put their pea brains together and find out about natural habitats.

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)

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.
