Wild Violet! Synopsis

Violet is wild. She growls at the dog, draws on the walls, and slurps her cereal straight from the bowl. Violet's Gran takes her to the zoo for a relaxing trip but, after a mix-up, Violet spends the night with the monkeys and a monkey goes back with Gran. Worse still, Gran and Violet's parents don't even notice! Will there be chaos or will a lesson be learnt? A charming and hilarious story about learning to be well behaved without completely losing your wild side, from the author and illustrator team behind 'Woolf'.
