VIOLET MACKEREL'S NATURAL HABITAT by Anna Branford, illustrated by Sarah Davis

I read this to my five-year-old daughter and we both loved it. We were delighted to discover that it's the third book in a series, so we have more Violet to look forward to

As the smallest in her family, Violet Mackerel has an affinity for Small Things. When she finds a tiny ladybug, she is intent on helping it, but her intentions go terribly wrong and she learns a hard lesson about Natural Habitats. What, Violet wonders, is her Natural Habitat? With surprising help from her sister, she begins to unravel that question. This book deals with death in a very real, nonthreatening way, and explores the often-strained sibling relationship that can be a lifesaver in hard times.

Available May 13. The first two books in the series, VIOLET MACKEREL'S BRILLIANT PLOT and VIOLET MACKEREL'S REMARKABLE RECOVERY are currently available.

Source disclosure: I received an e-galley of this title courtesy of the publisher.
