Gr 2–4—Sweet and likable Violet and best friend Rose band together to protect their beloved oak tree, which is in danger of being demolished. The latest entry in this charming, Australia-set chapter book series will inspire readers to find their voices and advocate for their own causes, big or small. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.
"In her sixth book, Violet and her friend Rose discover that their favorite oak tree is scheduled to be cut down to make way for a parking lot. . . . Branford manages to make circumstances work out for Violet, a good-hearted kid who can figure out what she is feeling before she speaks. The fortuitous ending . . . reads like just desserts." (Booklist, July 2014)
"When Violet and her friend Rose learn that their favorite oak tree is to be cut down, they organize a small protest with a big result. . . . Readers need not have read the five previous titles to appreciate Violet and her family. . . . Aussie Violet's world is just different enough to provide an interesting change for readers entering the chapter book stage. They will quite like the family's Saturday market stall, with its knitted nests and china birds, and they will enjoy the friends' success. . . . A characteristically intelligent entry in a consistently appealing series." (Kirkus Reviews, August 2014)
