Description

Frozen in the pattern of a drawing-room curtain, a dreamlike world waits patiently while Nurse Lugton sews. As she dozes in the lamplight, the animals adorning the curtain nod to one another and slowly awaken, making their way toward a sparkling lake and a magical town.

This wondrous story by Virginia Woolf was found among the manuscript pages of her Mrs. Dalloway. Julie Vivas's glorious illustrations bring Mrs. Woolf's words to life to create a magical volume that will enchant children and adults alike.
