Violet Mackerel has her own philosophies on life, and she's ready to put them into practice! Living with her eccentric, creative family, she learns to think differently about things and people - not to mention how to knit, garden (or rather, how not to garden) and make things. In book 1, Violet is smitten by a blue china bird at the market, but she doesn't have any money to buy it. What she needs is a brilliant Violet Mackerel plot!

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? This series reflects the movement for "happiness philosophy" in schools and educational policy - creative, environmentally-aware kids make their own fun - and chaos!

This is an irresistible new-baby story set in the fairy world...and with a delightful twist. Lilli-Pilli's mother is having a baby. Lilli-Pilli is sure the baby is going to be a sister. She can feel it in her wings. But when she asks around among the birds and butterflies in the forest, some of them are equally sure the new baby will be a brother - and they can feel it in their wings, too! Lilli-Pilli knows she will love the new baby whether it's a girl or a boy, and takes lots of care to find ways to make the tree-bark cradle more comfortable, but she can't help wondering...which will it be? She doesn't have to wait long to find out! This is a new picture book from award-winning author Anna Branford, who is known for the popular Violet Mackerel series. Fairies in the forest, adorable woodland creatures, a new baby on the way...couldn't be sweeter. It features gorgeous illustrations from upcoming artist Linda Catchlove.
