Mia sucks her thumb. It comforts her when she is sad, calms her when she is excited, and gives her courage when she needs to be brave. Mommy tells her she is too old for it, Daddy warns that her teeth will get crooked, her brother tells her she's embarrassing, and Grandpa offers her money to stop; but Mia refuses to quit. But when Grandma says, "I'll try it!" it's too much even for Mia who says, "Stop it! It's really embarrassing!" Young readers will laugh at this offbeat picture book, and exasperated adults will be pleased to find a book that addresses this common childhood compulsion with humor and compassion.
Ljuba Stille creates fine art, as well as illustrations for magazines. Mia'sThumb is her first book. She lives in Cologne, Germany with her husband and two children.
