A gorgeous new series for girls from the bestselling author of the Alice-Miranda series.
Clementine Rose was delivered not in the usual way, at a hospital, but in the back of a mini-van, in a basket of dinner rolls.
So begins the story of a lovely little girl who lives in Penberthy Floss in a large ramshackle house with her mother, Lady Clarissa, Digby Pertwhistle the butler and a very sweet teacup pig called Lavender.
When her scary Aunt Violet arrives unexpectedly, the household is thrown into disarray. What is it that Aunt Violet really wants and what is she carrying in her mysterious black bag?
From the author of the best-selling Alice-Miranda series, for readers aged 5+.

Her first and only picture book, The Sound of the Sea was an Honour Book in the 2006 Children’s Book Council Awards.
