Violet Mackerel's Possible Friend, is Book Five in the delightful series which is just perfect for those who are tackling chapter books.
Following her mum's marriage to the very lovely Vincent, Violet's family have now moved to their new family home. There are lots of new places to discover including a wonderful garden full of interesting things. When Violet spies her neighbours' very tidy garden she is quite intrigued. She is even more intrigued when she starts swopping tiny notes with the little girl Rose who lives there. Is Rose a possible friend? How will that happen?
Violet goes on a big journey for a little girl as she learns how to make friends, and to be confident with who she is.
As demonstrated in Books 1-4 Anna Branford expertly captures Violet's thoughts in a cute manner as she continues to develop a delightful character who has enthralled many young readers.
The short chapters are brilliantly illustrated by Sarah Davis' light pencil drawings, adding a wonderfully grown up feel to the series.
