Synopsis

From the author of Brian Banana Duck Sunshine Yellow and Special Kev, a story celebrating the power of childhood friendships, and the resilience of those friendships when faced with separation

Violet calls me Marvellous.
My real name is Marvin.
Mum reckons me and Violet are like two peas in a pod. It's true. We go together like fish and chips, hops and skips, the OO in Moo.
We lived next door to each other until, one day, Violet left and went to the moon.

Marvin and Violet have been friends since they were babies. They are like two peas in a pod—but then Violet moves away. The friends learn to deal with their aloneness and to enjoy being individuals in this story of friendship that is both tender and truthful.
