Meet Violette, a curious 12-year-old girl who travels the world with the Cirque de la Lune--the Circus of the Moon, where her mother is the human cannonball and her father is the insect trainer!
Sometimes she would give anything to have a normal life, parents with boring jobs, and a real house. But her life is different! In Paris, Violette meets Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, a funny and eccentric painter who shows her how to appriciate all the joys of being different!
