An album in 3 parts recounting the wonderful adventures of Viola, a very unusual 12-year-old girl. Daughter of a stuntwoman and an insect tamer, Viola Vermeer is truly full of surprises. Through the wanderings of the ‘Moon Circus’ at the end of 1800, Viola travels Europe, America and Asia. During her travels she runs into all sorts of magic and intrigue. Astounded by the beauty of the world around her, Viola is sensitive to the arts that compound her daily existence: music, painting, drawing, nature, and many more…Accompanied by her animal friends (Sinbad the gibbon and her father’s insects), and also by the circus family, Viola goes on to meet Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, and later Antonin Leopold Dvorak. A real coming-of-age story in which art and beauty are celebrated on every page. Packed with fantasy and charming humor.
