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.
