Hooray for Grand Opening Day! Creative, bold, and determined Violet R. Hare-Engbone has a passion for fashion, fabric, and friends. As she eagerly prepares to open her new store, a trio of troublemakers wreck havoc to try to bring Violet’s dream to a screeching halt. Can Violet stand tall when she feels scared, weak, and small? This colorful, fast-paced story is a spirited reminder to trust yourself and believe in the power and possibilities you hold within.
For friends and fans of writer Missy Julian Fox and artist Elaine O’Neil, the launch of their new book, Violet Stands Tall, is welcome news. Unlike their previous bestsellers, Goodnight Carolina and Road Trip Carolina: A Ride Across the Old North State, this one is not about a place but a charming, creative, quite fashionable bunny-entrepreneur. Violet is excited to open her new clothing store and, for those who love Franklin Street, you may even know the exact address. Yet, Violet Stands Tall is a universal story of grit and perseverance and meant to be shared far beyond our True Blue town and our Tar Heel state.
