Winner of the Ruth Schwartz Award

Stella and her little brother are spending the day at the sea. Stella has been to the sea before and knows all its secrets, but Sam has many questions: "Does a catfish purr? Does a seahorse gallop?" Stella has an answer for them all. The only thing she isn't sure of, and neither are we, is whether Sam will ever come into the water.

Exquisite, evocative watercolors bring a diaphanous day at the beach alive in this perfect summer story. Gently humorous, Stella, Star of the Sea also captures the relationship between an older sister and her baby brother -- a responsibility that can be both lots of fun and very trying.

As Mom of Max and Ruby, I know all about being on the receiving end of questions based on new discoveries! Stella, just like my Ruby, has all the answers for her brother. Great book for growing the imagination and understanding family dynamics. What would we do without a big sister like Stella!
