Penguin Putnam
Violet the swan is brash and bighearted; Winston the duck is bumbling and sweet. They are the best of friends despite being very different birds. Through the three episodes in this endearing picture book, their fondness for each other helps them overcome some terrifi cally silly challenges.

Husband-and-wife team Sonya Sones and Bennett Tramer loosely based Violet and Winston on themselves, and they then recruited their friend Chris Raschka to create their avian alter egos. The result is a joyful kid-pleaser in the tradition of George & Martha and Frog & Toad.

Baker & Taylor
Although different in many ways, bold and boisterous Violet the swan and gentle-natured Winston the duck are perfect for one another as they work together and provide constant support in overcoming whatever challenges they may face as only the best of friends can do.

& Taylor
