The Trouble with Perfect
Mr B's review
Mr B’s Christmas Catalogue Review 2018
At the dramatic end of ‘A Place Called Perfect’, we were left in no doubt that the intrigue surrounding this bizarrely idyllic town was far from over. In that first book we followed Violet to ‘Perfect’ and watched as she teamed up with the illusive “Boy” and slowly pieced together the mysteries, hiding behind a town of contented people (with bad eyesight!). In the sequel Violet and Boy are back and, after an inspired visual recap of book one, the plot twists return. One of the most inventive and exciting new series in children’s literature.
Having uncovered the secrets that lay behind the spookily pristine town of Perfect, Violet and the townsfolk are enjoying their new freedom from the maniacal rule of the evil Archer twins. But have they really seen the last of Edward Archer? Why is Boy acting strangely? And who is masterminding a scary zombie army? Another quirky, creepy and unforgettable adventure, perfect for fans of Roald Dahl, Neil Gaiman and Tim Burton.
