Description

Meet Violet Mackerel - a girl with a mission to think outside the box.Violet invents her "Theory of Leaving Small Things" (when you leave something small in a nice place, so a tiny bit of you gets to stay too). Then there are two lots of special news: Mum and Vincent are getting married, and they'll all be moving to a new house. Violet is excited about the wedding part (she will wear a dress with fairy wings) but not so keen on the moving house: brother Dylan is not keen on ANY of it. Whilst everyone pitches in on the preparations, he pitches his tent right in the middle of the wedding party. Can Violet help Dylan leave part of himself behind while they all move on together?show more

She also makes dolls using recycled materials.Sam Wilson graduated from Kingston University in 1999. The Violet Mackerel books are the first titles she has illustrated for children.
