Meet Violet Remy-Robinson, an amateur Sherlock Holmes in the making.
Violet has spent her holiday exploring India with Godmother Celeste, including visiting Celeste's good friend the Maharajah and meeting his very special parrot. And when she returns home, only to get a visit from the Maharajah's butler, asking her to look after the parrot, Violet couldn't be more surprised (and her cat Pudding couldn't be less pleased).
But as Violet discovers, the parrot holds the key to the Maharajah's fortune, and someone is trying to parrot-nap her!
Can she discover who the culprit is before they succeed?
