Virginia’s “wolfish” mood is upsetting the whole family. Her sister, Vanessa, cheers her up by painting an idyllic imaginary world on the bedroom walls. Soon Virginia picks up the brush and undergoes a transformation of her own. A celebration of sibling relationships and the healing power of art.
Isabelle Arsenault’s Virginia Wolf is an imaginative journey into the world of children’s dreams and creativity. This delightfully whimsical and tactile book has the feeling of children’s sidewalk drawings. Through her unique style, the illustrator merges fantasy, emotions and inspiration.
