Violet Mackerel A Funny Read About a Clever Girl

In Violet Mackerel's Brilliant Plot, the first in a series of chapter books by Australian writer Anna Branford, 7-year-old Violet desperately wants a beautiful china bird from the flea market. But to raise the ten bucks to buy it, she'll need to master a new skill: outside-the-box thinking. The results are as warm as Violet is funny, and the tale ends on the sweetest of notes.
