Synopsis

In the tradition of literary classics like The Secret Garden comes this irresistible story about a girl who doesn’t want to go anywhere or do anything. Violet Bing has even said “no” to the family vacation, so she is sent to stay with her great-aunt Astrid instead. As usual, Violet is determined to dislike everything about her stay. But with the help of a stray dog, a new friend, and an old diary, Violet discovers that-even for her-fun is hard to avoid at The Grand House.

Written in a charming, original voice, and overflowing with richly detailed black-and-white drawings, this book is truly a classic-in-waiting.
