Find out more about the book & the author below…
Viola is a people-watcher. She loves to sit on the step of her father’s bakery in Brookwater Lane, creating stories about the weird and wonderful folk who pass by. Her father is secretly impressed by her big imagination but her mother thinks it’s all a bit silly, really.
So, when Viola witnesses a terrifying robbery late one evening, her theory as to who is behind this dreadful crime is met with rolled eyes and disbelief.
Determined to prove that she is not as silly as everyone believes, Viola sets out to bring this villain to justice and show that she is more than just a girl with a wild imagination.
Together with her older brother, Teddy, her best friend, Flo, and the mysterious Emerald Lady, Viola uncovers a plot far more dangerous than anyone could ever have imagined in this exciting Victorian mystery.
Jo lives in West Sussex with her husband, daughter, two cats and 187 mugs. She does love a good cup of tea!
Having trained as an actress, Jo had written three stage plays (under the name Jo Smith) before realising her passion for writing children’s books.
Jo is the author of ‘The Pumpernickel Mysteries’ series of books.
