Publisher's Summary

A delightfully magical story for kids that features a recipe at the end for a sweet treat!

Nine-year-old Violet loves spending time in her Aunt Abigail's flower shop in their small British town. And she's so excited to stay overnight with her Aunt Abigail for the first time! But when Aunt Abigail has to leave to deal with an emergency, Violet and her friends, twins Jack and Zack, start poking around - and discover that her aunt owns an ancient magical flower book and uses her flower magic to make people happy! 

Violet wants to do that, too. Her first mission: making a match between two of her teachers. Unfortunately, it all goes wrong! Until Aunt Abigail comes to the rescue, that is. It's not long until Violet finds another opportunity to test out some magic: helping her classmate Fiorella, who's deeply unhappy even though she's an amazing piano player. Can Violet help Fiorella stand up for what she wants? Or is there more magical mayhem in store?

Cute distraction

A sweet short. It is consistent with the genre of day to day people living with magical abilities solving mysteries, but this one has no dead bodies. It is light and entertaining. I will be watching for what Violet's next adventure is with her aunt. The narration is nicely done--inflection, voices not at all flat.

Whimsical

I loved the relationship between magic and potions made from real flowers. A very well balanced story . I will enjoy reading this to my granddaughters one day soon. Narrated did a very good job.
The recipe at the end was an excellent touch. I will purchase some lavender flowers soon.

Loved it .

The Kids Love This Story

The Kids loved the story. we completed the whole thing in one car ride and a few extra minutes in a parking lot. They didn't want to stop listening. Recommended.

I love it!

It's whimsical and fun. It's a great distraction from my challenging life and helps me calm my mind and sleep better. I really hope that the rest of these books are translated into English and put on audible because I'm legally blind and this is how I read.

Super cute short story

Cute light hearted story of magic flowers. I am only sad it was so short; I’d love a few more more hours of this.

Weird American narration

The story is based in the UK but weirdly it is narrated by an American who is rivalling Dick van Dyke for oddest British accent ever. I expect this is fine for US listeners but it is painful for this UK listener. Had to stop because it was grating so much.

Great relaxing feel good story

Not too eventful or stressful it's a real pity the other books in the series aren't translated into English only available in German as I'd be willing to buy the whole collection & listen to more books from this author. Same narrator as the Batts confectionery book series that has a similar easy listening style.
The parrot 🦜 was a nice funny character
