Review by Lorie Pierce

Marie-Louise Gay’s new book is populated with talking trees, invisible children, interchangeable noses and worms that rule the world. Take delight in the colourful world she has constructed within a rabbit’s den, complete with a carrot airplane. Join children contemplating life around them, and see how cats play. Each vignette is a feast for the eyes, with easy-to-read text. These short stories are springboards to get even the youngest imaginations soaring.

Through During Gay’s engaging presentation at the recent ImagiNation Literary Festival at the Morrin Centre in Québec City, families discovered how she constructs her whimsical world, and learned the easiest way to draw a cat. In person or on the page, she knows how to delight the youngest readers.

Marie-Louise Gay has won many awards for children’s literature, including two Governor General’s  . Her Stella and Sam series has been translated into more than 15 languages and is loved by children all over the world. She lives in Montréal.
