What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

If you love stories of imagination, such as Little Red Riding Hood, Where the Wild Things Are, and Charlie and Lola—you’ll adore spending time with these two courageous siblings.

“Once upon a time, a brave little girl and her brother set out on a long, long journey,” Violet tells Peter. “A journey fraught with danger and peril.”

Riding their building’s elevator and traveling the hallways past apartment doors to bring soup to a sick neighbor, Violet and Peter encounter both real and imagined adventure—getting lost in the laundry room, running into a troll, and escaping scary noises in the nick of time, only to find that their poor sick neighbor looks . . . like a wolf!

Clever, thought-provoking, and with an unforgettable ending, Violet and the Woof is a book that explores the power of imaginative storytelling and will have kids asking: “What’s real?”

Who Wrote Violet and the Woof

Rebecca Grabill

I love words, the music they make, their personalities and scents and textures. Words are like Sendak’s Wild Things, each clamoring for their own Rumpus. I love creating stories by taming a few of those wild and wily words, and I love inspiring others to explore their own creativity. I’m author of the picture books, Halloween Good Night (Atheneum), Violet and the Woof (HarperCollins), and A Year With Mama Earth (Eerdmans Books for Young Readers).

You can find cyber-me on Instagram, Facebook, and on my website. The real me lives in rural Michigan with my husband, six children, two cats, and an ever-growing litter of dust bunnies. On any given day I might be spotted hiking to the mailbox, playing freeze-tag in the yard, or sneaking a handful of chocolate chips from the cupboard (my favorite treat!).
