Praise For Virginia Wolf…
Parents will enjoy sharing this book with their sometimes ?wolfish? children.—School Library Journal, Starred Review
Vanessa's act of love is recounted with grace and sensitivity in this remarkable collaboration.—Publisher's Weekly
Knowledge of Virginia Woolf and her painter-sister Vanessa Bell is unnecessary; this works beautifully as a bad-day/bad-mood or animal-transformation tale, while readers who know actual depression will find it handled with tenderly forceful aplomb.—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review
It's a tale to delight literary-minded adults as much as the kids they're tucking in.—The Guardian
... the book is ultimately a feel-good celebration of the power of the imagination and art to create perfect places in the world when none can be found.—Booklist
... plum for adults ... a level of literary and biographical resonance to the tale of sisterly love.—Horn Book
