Stella, Princess Of The Sky
Maire-louise Gay


Marie-Louise Gay’s Stella, Princess of the Sky, is a celebration of a young child’s discovery of the natural world and a tribute to older-sister/younger-brother relationships.

During a camp-out under the stars, Sam peppers his big sister, Stella, with questions about animals, birds, insects, and celestial bodies. The confident and quick-thinking Stella patiently answers her brother’s questions, giving her perspective on things.

This gentle, humorous story is awash in the author-illustrator’s soothing watercolour artwork and makes for an ideal bedtime read for children eight and under. mRb

Carol-Ann Hoyte is the Quebec English-language regional coordinator for TD Canadian Children's Book Week and organizer of monthly mixers for Montreal anglophone children's book authors and illustrators.
