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.




Strange things are happening in the town that used to be Perfect.

Things are being stolen… then children start going missing too. And everyone is blaming Violet’s best friend, Boy. But Boy’s not BAD – is he? To find out what’s going on, Violet must uncover secrets from the past and battle a gruesome zombie monster. Town is in trouble – double trouble – and it’s up to Violet to save it.

A reissue of this quirky and creepy sequel to the bestselling A Place Called Perfect, for fans of Roald Dahl, Neil Gaiman and Tim Burton.

“Your heart is in your mouth and you’re knee-deep in adventure…” MG Leonard, author of Beetle Boy
