There's nothing Violet loves more than music, and she plays or sings every chance she gets.  But where are the other kids like her-kids who think and dream music all day long?  As a baby, in kindergarten, at the beach and the zoo, she never gives up looking for companions.  And then one summer day...

Bright, lively, and lyrical, this is a book for kids who march to a different drummer.  Violet's Music sings to us that the right friend is always out there-as long as we keep looking and hoping, and above all, staying true to ourselves.

Although Violet's love of music ostensibly forms the heart of Johnson's (When I Am Old with You ) story, the rhythm and joy of a child's delight in music comes through in neither text nor art.
