Find out how reading just one book can lead to a brand-new library in this lively chain-reaction story about actions and their consequences – however unintended they may be!

Violet has searched her room high and low, but just can’t find a book she hasn’t read before.

But alas, on this particular rainy day, the only unfamiliar book she can find is the one propping up the kitchen table. Dad won’t miss it, right?... .

With a CLATTER and a CRASH, Violet’s actions set in motion an unstoppable chain of events that soon has the whole town in chaos!

Wenda Shurety

Wenda Shurety, or Wobbly Wenda, is a children's author, scientist and archer. She loves to write from the heart about nature, diversity and the magical world of the imagination. Wenda was born in London and began her career in science, studying Biochemistry at the University of Surrey and Cell Biology at the University of Cambridge. She worked in a laboratory in New York, then moved to Australia to work as a scientist at the University of Queensland. There she met her husband, started a family, and now calls Australia home. Becoming a mum inspired Wenda to write stories for children, and she has since written two books, Eva’s Imagination and The Golden Treasure, and been featured in the anthology It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas. Wenda was delighted when Eva's Imagination was read out on Play School last year. She also has two more books coming out in late 2020, both inspired by nature: Nature’s Toybox and Dig! Dig! Dig! Wenda has written Pear of Hope to encourage hope. She has lived with Multiple Sclerosis for twenty years and hasn’t let it stop her. Hope has been instrumental with her journey, and she aims to share it with others so that it might help them, too. In addition to being a scientist and writing wonderful stories, Wenda is also a classified para-archer and will compete in the National Australian Para-archery Championships in March 2020. She lives in Brisbane with her husband, daughter, pug and dachshund.
