Clementine Rose grows up with her adopted mother, Lady Clarissa, their butler, Digby Pertwhistle, and a very tiny teacup pig named Lavender. When Clementine's scary Aunt Violet visits, the household is thrown into disarray. What is it that Aunt Violet really wants, and what is she hiding in her mysterious black bag?
