Praise For When Stella Was Very, Very Small…
"[A] delightful series . . . Gay’s mixed-media scenes dance . . . Subtle and sweet, yet full of life and humor, [Stella's] world is a place kids will want to visit again and again." —School Library Journal, starred review
The charming illustrations, rendered in watercolour, pastel and collage, depict red-headed Stella’s antics in great detail and from a variety of perspectives. Young readers will wish they could be just like Stella, or at least have a big sister like her. Stella is both wonderful and full of wonder purely glorious.” —Kirkus, starred review
If you’ve ever wondered how Stella got so imaginative, wonder no more . . . Enchanting overhead views subtly drive home how being small makes the world seem big, and young listeners will feel encouraged to laugh at their own past foibles.” —Booklist
Stella’s dynamic world and big sister charisma will pay off for fans of the gentle series.” —Publishers Weekly
