Virginia Wolf by Kyo Maclear( Book )

22 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 1,094 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. Winner of the 2012 Governor Generals Award for Childrens Illustration. Grades K-3. 2012

Alors qu'elle souffre des insultes que graffite méchamment Geneviève sur les murs et portes de l'école, qu'elle se trouve grosse et moche comme une saucisse, qu'elle s'évade dans la lecture du roman Jane Eyre et qu'elle apprécie tout de même sa solitude, en marchant à travers les rues de son quartier de Montréal, Hélène redoute d'avoir à passer quelques jours en classe d'immersion anglaise au camp du lac Kanawana avec le reste des élèves de sa classe. Sur place, elle fait l'objet d'autres railleries. Or, l'avant dernier soir, assise sur la galerie de sa cabane, un renard la regarde et l'approche. Suzanne hurle alors et la prévient qu'il est certainement enragé, malade et dangereux. Hélène est à nouveau repliée sur elle-même, convaincue que, comme dans son roman, un malheur se cache nécessairement derrière un bonheur naissant. Mais Géraldine vient tout changer et lui apporte la complicité de son amitié sincère. [SDM]

Une berceuse en chiffons : la vie tissée de Louise Bourgeois by Amy Novesky( Book )

2 editions published in 2016 in French and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Album biographique proposant un survol poétique et émouvant de la vie de Louise Bourgeois, cette artiste plasticienne de réputation internationale qui est avant tout connue pour ses sculptures de bois, d'acier, de pierre et de caoutchouc moulé, parmi lesquelles figure la célèbre ##Maman##, une araignée de plus de dix mètres de hauteur, exposée au Musée des Beaux-Arts du Canada. Née d'un père absent qui "avait le goût des choses raffinées" et d'une mère qui l'initie dès son tout jeune âge à son métier de restauratrice de tapisseries, Louise grandit sur une propriété dotée d'un jardin luxuriant où elle passe ses nuits à pleurer sa famille désunie et à admirer la "dentelle des étoiles", bercée par le murmure de la rivière. Rivière qu'elle remonte un jour jusqu'à la Seine en quête d'une stabilité émotionnelle qu'elle espère trouver dans l'étude des mathématiques. Ses plans sont toutefois bouleversés par le décès de sa mère, qui lui donne l'impression d'être abandonnée, seule face à une vie fragile et incertaine. La jeune femme se tourne donc vers l'art, qui lui permet de rendre hommage à la défunte à travers des sculptures de tisserandes géantes, mais également de renouer avec son enfance à travers des dessins sur tissu, des livres de toile et une berceuse en chiffons, tous confectionnés avec des vêtements, draps, serviettes, napperons ou mouchoirs accumulés au fil de son existence ...

Jane, la volpe & io by Isabelle Arsenault( Book )

5 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in Italian and held by 25 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hélène vorrebbe nascondersi da tutto e da tutti: dal mondo grigio che la circonda, dai bulli della scuola, dalla prova costume - che la fa sentire un salsicciotto -, dalla sua solitudine. Il suo unico rifugio è un libro, Jane Eyre, ed è solo nelle pagine del suo romanzo preferito che il mondo si colora di pace e poesia. Sarà invece la temuta gita di classe a riservare incontri insoliti e inaspettati, e una grande, semplice scoperta: non si è mai soli. Attraverso parole e immagini piene di grazia e poesia, un romanzo grafico che parla una lingua universale: quella di chi non ha mai smesso di aspettare il proprio incontro speciale. Età di lettura: da 10 anni
