review 1: So I may need to sneak off and read this entire series on my own. The adorable cover illustrations drew me in. Then the story line had me hooked. Each title page starts with a small knitting inspired illustration - sign me up! The heroine is as sweet as pie. These are just the type of stories I would want to write myself. My daughter let me read two of them to her and she read #3 on her own...but does not have quite the same level of love for these as I do. Violet's mother knits and sells her handmade goodies at a weekend market. Yes, you had me at knit and weekend market. Im sold! Love these books!! The Authors website is also quite lovely!
review 2: Beautiful, sweet chapter book for my own little Violet and me to read together. I happened upon it at the libra
... morery and I'm thrilled to see that it's a series! We'll be reading more for sure. Violet, her two older siblings, and her mother go to the market every Saturday to sell her mom's knitting. There are some deeper subjects that older readers can choose to explore with their young listeners (dad left, mama's trying to make ends meet), but it's told from little Violet's perspective so everything is magical, not sad. She's got quite an imagination and some great theories, and the end is full of hope and the happy ending that my Violet was looking for. less

I bet this would be a good "chapter" book for an early reader to read on her own.
A very good, short transitional chapter book.
A very sweet and touching story.
Super, super cute.
