Book Synopsis



Perfect for Valentine's Day, Love, Violet by Charlotte Sullivan Wild and Charlene Chua is a touching picture book about friendship and the courage it takes to share your feelings.

A 2022 Lambda Literary Award Finalist

Only one person
makes Violet's heart skip

Of all the kids in Violet's class, only one leaves her speechless: Mira, the girl with the cheery laugh who races like the wind. If only they could adventure together! But every time Violet tries to tell Mira how she feels, Violet goes shy. As Valentine's Day approaches, Violet is determined to tell Mira just how special she is.

Charlene Chua's luminous watercolors bring to life this sweet and gentle picture book about friendship, love, and the courage it takes to share your heart.



Review Quotes




The gentle, child-friendly romance at the heart of the story is a perfect celebration of courage and queerness, and earnest, awkward Violet is a protagonist every reader will root for. --Kirkus, STARRED REVIEW

Valentine's Day brings a shy child named Violet the chance to connect with her crush, Mira, in Sullivan Wild's uplifting wintry tale...a race through the snow--choreographically captured with dancelike grace in Chua's simple, light-filled watercolors--brings the duo together at last, making the holiday one of joyful acceptance.
--Publishers Weekly, STARRED REVIEW

The sensitive third-person narrative details Violet's thoughts and emotions throughout the story and reveals Mira's in the happy ending. Capturing the girls' distinct personalities, the illustrations glow with warm, delicate colors... An appealing picture book for reading aloud, particularly in the weeks leading up to Valentine's Day.
--Booklist




About the Author



Charlotte Sullivan Wild was first struck speechless by a crush in preschool. In grade school she may have cut and pasted a special valentine for someone and been too shy to sign it. But she's not shy about love anymore! Her first picture book is The Amazing Idea of You, illustrated by Mary Lundquist (Bloomsbury, 2019). Originally from snowy Minnesota, she now lives wherever her wife is stationed, from Texas to Italy, to see what they might find--together.

Charlene Chua's debut picture book is Hug?. When she is not making art, she enjoys cooking, reading, and playing with her cats. She now lives with her husband (and cats!) in Hamilton, Ontario.
