About The Author


Prior to beginning her career as a children’s picture book author/illustrator, Violet  Favero (Silly Yaya), worked as a medical administrator, is a grandmother to nine granddaughters and is well know for her Sunday Dinners and lavish holiday gatherings.

Violet’s third picture book, Unkie Munkie Lives at The Zoo, was named Amazon’s #1 New Release in its genre.  It followed her first two books, that are international sellers, Silly Yaya and Sunday Dinner at Silly Yaya’s.

Violet is passionate that we are raising readers, one book at a time.  She is a frequent visitor to schools and libraries reading to students and getting them excited about reading. She travels with her husband and dog in their RV doing book signings and appearances.  Violet lives in Florida.
