Regular price $18.99


Who's afraid of Virginia Wolf? Not Vanessa! In Kyo Maclear's tale of sisterly love, whimsically illustrated by Isabelle Arsenault, Vanessa takes care to help her sister when she awakes one day in a wolf-ish mood. Together, they create a place with "absolutely no doldrums." -RG

Vanessa's sister, Virginia, is in a “wolfish” mood --- growling, howling and acting very strange. It's a funk so fierce, the whole household feels topsy-turvy. Vanessa tries everything she can think of to cheer her up, but nothing seems to work. 

Then Virginia tells Vanessa about an imaginary, perfect place called Bloomsberry. Armed with an idea, Vanessa begins to paint Bloomsberry on the bedroom walls, transforming them into a beautiful garden complete with a ladder and swing “so that what was down could climb up.” Before long, Virginia, too, has picked up a brush and undergoes a surprising transformation of her own. Loosely based on the relationship between author Virginia Woolf and her sister, painter Vanessa Bell, Virginia Wolf is an uplifting story for readers of all ages.
