Marvin and Violet have been friends since they were babies. They are like two peas in a pod. But then Violet moves away. With a unique Australian flavour, this story of friendship is both tender and truthful.

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.
