My Review: This is a story about an adopted cat name Violet. Before she was adopted Violet knew she was meant for more, she was meant to rule a kingdom, with sharp claws and velvet paws. Kept in a shelter she would arch her royal fur when anyone stops by to look at her, but they moved on and chose a tiny kitten instead.
Finally, Violet gets adopted by a man and woman and took her home. The moment she stepped into the house, she quickly shows their two dogs George and Zippity, who is in charge. She wasn’t friendly at all.
This is a cute story about the difference in animals learning to get along and be friends. And a good story for every family. Sometimes we do need the help of others for no man is an island.
What a great illustrations by Ard Hoyt combining watercolor and pencil to bring this story to life.
