Clementine Rose and the Surprise Visitor by Jacqueline Harvey (Book 1)

Clementine Rose was delivered not in the usual way, at a hospital, but in the back of a mini-van, in a basket of dinner rolls.

So begins the story of a lovely little girl who lives in Penberthy Floss in a large ramshackle house with her mother, Lady Clarissa, Digby Pertwhistle the butler and a very sweet teacup pig called Lavender.

When Clementine's scary Aunt Violet arrives unexpectedly, the household is thrown into disarray. What is it that Aunt Violet really wants, and what is she carrying in her mysterious black bag? 

Story Mama Quick Review:

Clementine Rose is 5 years old.  This is book 1 in the series. This is a chapter book for independent readers. It has a handfull of black and white pictures throughout. 

Nobody knows where Clementine Rose really came from as she was delivered to the doorstep in a basket of dinner rolls. Lady Clarissa fell instantly in love with her and her home has been Penberthy House ever since. 

The mother and daughter team turn the house into a B&B to help with the upkeep of the 60 room mansion. Clementine has plenty of adventures in her house and must find away to be kind to her crotchety Aunt. This is a warm, feel good story with a touch of humour.

We highly recommend this series for children age 5-9
