Listen to Chiquito Joaquim Crasto read a portion of Of Violet and Brunettes on Amazon – see link below
Violet was six and Brunettes were four. And seeing as how they’re the main characters in this children’s book; and seeing as how they live in a castle in a dynasty; they’re royalty.
Violet has violet hair as does everybody else in the dynasty, everybody except Brunettes. They were an exception. Their hair was auburn with a touch of gold. Perhaps when Brunettes grew older, their hair would turn violet. However, Brunettes were always an exception to everything in the Dynasty, so Violet doubted it with every last breath of her being.
Violet started the conversation. She always had to start the conversation, but she didn’t really mind. She liked giving Brunettes a chance to start the conversation, knowing that would never happen.
Waiting just long enough, Violet asked, “What shall we do today?” She tried to make it sound royal.
They waited and waited, then together Brunettes said, “I don’t know.”
“Well, in that case …”, Violet was starting to say; when Brunettes said together, “Today, we get a name!”
This was very surprising to Violet. It was not surprising that Brunettes said something together. They said and did everything in unison.
It was this request for a name that was so surprising. They had a name! So, Violet stated what she assumed was obvious to all of them. “You have a name, Brunettes.”
“NO!!!!!!!!! She wants a name!” they screamed, pointing at each other.
“Brunettes, you have a name!” said Violet, sounding as exasperated as a six-year old could sound.
