Description: Love is dumb. Totally dumb…Right? Lioness cub Violet isn’t so sure after she meets Orsino, a peacock nobleman, and is struck with the ooey gooey, pulseypoundy love she has heard so much about. Orsino, however, has his heart set on the gazelle, Lady Olivia, who has declared a state of grief for 7 years to mourn her brother’s death and has refused all men in that time. Orsino sends Violet, in disguise as a male lion called Cesario, to woo Lady Olivia for him, only for Olivia to fall for Cesario in return! This topsy-turvy love triangle and retelling of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night is sure to have you roaring with laughter as Violet discovers what it means to love, work through grief and loss, and the power that a simple hug can have on friends in need.
