Violet is wild.

She growls at the dog, draws on the walls, and slurps her cereal straight from the bowl.

Violet’s Gran takes her to the zoo for a relaxing trip but, after a mix-up, Violet spends the night with the monkeys and a monkey goes back with Gran. Worse still, Gran and Violet’s parents don’t even notice!

Will there be chaos or will a lesson be learnt?
