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.

When I opened this book, I was simply blown away by the gorgeous illustrations. The illustrations help to set the tone of the story, which features Virginia, who wakes up in a "wolfish" mood, and her sister who helps to turn her day around. The world Virginia's sister creates is so colorful and beautiful that Virginia can't help but wake up in a cheery mood.

I am so excited to have this book in my collection. I am sure it is a book that my baby girl and I will enjoy reading together someday.
