Picture Book Review: Violet’s Tempest

Violet's Tempest by Ian Eagleton

Violet’s Tempest

4 out of 5 stars

Violet has been cast in the part of Ariel in her class’s production of The Tempest, but Violet doesn’t feel light and airy like the fairy she is supposed to be playing. She feels heavy with sadness and worry. Her voice is a whisper, and she is petrified with stage fright. What can she do to find the courage to act in the play?

I loved that Violet’s grandmother encourages and guides her as Violet navigates this internal “tempest”. Her grandmother is so kind and patient. Violet’s uncles, who appear to be a homosexual couple, also try to encourage her.

This was such a sweet book about finding your own voice and having the confidence to perform in your own way. I really liked the positive messages in this book!

The illustrations are so beautiful! I love the art style and the warm colors. Every page is a delight!
