Irrepressible Violet growls at the dog, draws on the wall and slurps her cereal straight from the bowl. On a visit to the zoo, Gran takes a monkey home instead of Violet, leaving her granddaughter in the monkey cage for a night. Will Gran even notice the difference? And can Violet learn to behave without losing her wild side all together? The combination of singsong text and immersive pictures create a touching story about a tough little girl who is definitely no shrinking violet.
