‘There is a new girl sleuth on the block’ The Times
When Count and Countess Du Plicitous move into the neighbourhood, Violet is sure there's something strange about them. And when her eccentric but lovely neighbour, Dee Dee Derota, has her precious Pearl of the Orient stolen, a series of clues leads Violet to believe the count and countess could be to blame! Violet is on the case to uncover the truth . . .
Beautifully designed and filled with Becka Moor's gorgeous illustrations, everyone is bound to fall in love with Violet and the colourful characters that make up her world.
