Mama and Vincent have some very big news. They're getting married!

But this means Mama, Dylan, Nicola, and Violet will have to leave behind the little beach house that they share for a larger house and Dylan is mad. So mad, in fact, that he sets up his dad's old tent right where the wedding is to take place!

Violet is torn. She's excited about the wedding, but sad about the move to a new home. What is she to do? Well, known for her theories, Violet comes up with the 'Theory of Leaving Small Things Behind ... When you leave something small behind, maybe a small part of you gets to stay too.'

Will Violet's theory comfort Dylan and will the wedding take place? What will Violet leave behind at the beloved beach house? Pick up this great read, for readers aged six to ten, and find out. Happy reading!
