Violet and the Smugglers

(1 reviews with an average rating of 1 out of 5)

Publisher: Simon & Schuster

Violet is delighted when she and her friends are invited by her godfather on a sailing adventure to Venice. Always on the lookout for a mystery to solve, the children's suspicions are aroused by neighbouring boat-owner, Mr Jolly. After careful observation, they conclude that he's a smuggler and proceed to follow him in an attempt to gather evidence and bring him to justice.

When they unexpectedly bump into their friend PC Green, who is on a work exchange in Italy, they enlist his help. However,  the lovesick policeman only has eyes for beautiful opera singer La Bellissima, so the children must catch the criminals by themselves.

Divided into chapters and accompanied by amusing illustrations, this action-packed sleuthing adventure is ideal for newly confident readers.
