Join Violet Mackerel for another warm story as she discovers The Theory of Giving Small Things.

VIOLET MACKEREL has to have her tonsils out. Violet does NOT think this is a good idea. She prefers NOT to have things taken out. But the tonsils have to go. And that’s okay, because maybe Violet will make the most REMARKABLE RECOVERY ever.

About the Author

Anna Branford was born in the Isle of Man and spent her early childhood in Sudan and Papua New Guinea before moving to Australia. Creative writing was her favourite subject at school and she wrote stories in all these different countries. Anna is a doll maker and a sociology lecturer at Victoria University. Violet Mackerel's Brilliant Plot is her first published work for Walker Books Australia.

About the illustrator

Sarah Davis grew up in New Zealand, wearing gumboots and falling in rivers. She worked as a secondary school teacher before moving to Sydney. Sarah is a very busy, award-winning artist who has collaborated with Sue Whiting on Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy (New Frontier) and Jennifer Poulter Mending Lucille (Lothian), for which Sarah won the 2009 Children’s Book Council of Australia’s Crichton Award for Best New Illustrator. Most recently, Sarah’s title Fearless, written by Colin Thompson, was short-listed for the 2010 Children’s Book Council of Australia Awards.




"Violet Mackerel's Remarkable Recover" is a terrific story, and was absolutely perfect for a child about to have an operation. I would recommend it to every child - for enjoyment and to inform and reassure about hospital visits.

Fantastic Book!!


We LOVE Violet Mackerel!! I have a 7 year old girl who can read them well herself with help on the occasional words & just can't put them down. Even my 5 year old son loves to be read these books. They are written perfectly, with beautiful black & white illustrations.
