Stella, Star of the Sea

by Marie-louise Gay

Groundwood Books Ltd | April 15, 1999 | Hardcover

Stella, Star of the Sea is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.

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.

Hand picked by our Panel of Experts the IndigoKids Recommends program offers book suggestions designed to help you find the perfect book easily and confidently.

Stella's been to the sea before, but little Sam is seeing its vast blueness for the very first time. He has so many questions for his older, wiser sister before he goes into the water that Stella wonders if he'll ever come in. Sam just wants to know what he's getting into first before he takes the plunge. But Stella's patient with her little brother, answering all his questions as only someone can who's been on the Earth as long as she. Marie-Louise Gay brings the sea to life with her crystalline watercolours in the charming story, Stella.
