It s all about Violet - now a household name!

Violet Mackerel has moved into her new house. Violet Mackerel doesn't have any friends near the new house and she would quite like to make one. There is a girl next door who could be a possible friend. Her name is Rose and she has a pink and white bedroom and a doll's house.
