Violet and the Pearl of the Orient
Ones that had some more depth, better definition of the different characters and just a better story arch. However, it was still very entertaining! And whenever I'd be afraid the story would become way too predictable, it would often pan out slightly different after all. Also, the fun purple illustrati This was a total cover-buy. Also, the fun purple illustrations throughout score some bonus points: My favorite character was Dee Dee. Oh, to have a neighbor like her A girl can only dream of such things!
Anyway, I also own the second book in the Violet series. I know there is more after that. I'm not sure I'll read all, but I did like it enough to give the second one a go as well.

I highly recommend this book for kids in grades prep- 3. Jan 16, Kestrel Class rated it it was amazing. Mysterious book. Hard to put down! Aug 21, Letitia rated it did not like it. Any kids' book worth its salt should be enjoyable to adults, too. This was a really idiotic book.

These are my nine year old daughter's favourite books. Jul 06, Zeynep Usta rated it it was amazing. Aug 29, Steph rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed this. A fun little detective story with likeable characters and some brilliant word play! Feb 15, Lola rated it really liked it. I like books that are like that. I like the pictures that are in it. They are very neat and tidy.
Thats all. With beautiful illustrations that help to guide a reader through the story, this book is beautifully presented to entice young readers. Violet lives in a quiet area with an eclectic bunch of neighbours. When new neighbours move in and things start to change — for the worse — Violet sets out to prove that they are the reason that things are going bad.
