Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In their third adventure, Stella and her little brother cross a field and a creek before spending the day in the forest. Butterflies, snakes, rocks, and sheep provide fuel for Sam's curious-little-brother questions and Stella's big-sister answers as they explore the outdoor world. Gay's watercolors bring the forest alive as the two journey toward their very own fort where Sam resolves to stay forever. Marie-Louise Gay is a multiple-time winner of Canada's Governor General's Literary Award, Canada's Mr. Christie's Book Award, and others. "Gay's illustrations, done primarily in watercolors with a touch of paper collage, are bright and have a whimsical touch." School Library Journal

Review:

"Imaginative, high-energy Stella, curly red hair streaming behind her, is back, once again playing teacher to her inquisitive little brother, Sam....Her freewheeling ink-and-watercolor illustrations are delightful, and it's obvious from the knowing text that she has listened to conversations between kids. Stella and Sam, so different, relish their respective roles and obviously love one another; they always seem to find something to share in their circumscribed but ever-intriguing world." Stephanie Zvirin, Booklist

Review:

"Stella and little brother Sam return in this fantastic new adventure. Sam has never seen a fairy, so he and Stella set off for the forest in search of some, and learn many things along the way. This is a great choice for story-time; it's one you won't mind reading over and over." Mary Kooyman, Scott's Bookstore, Mount Vernon, WA
