It's always a treat to find a children's book that combines good writing, wonderful illustrations, and an entertaining story. So often, the books children go for are lacking in both plot and writing quality. Children will never grow up to read good books if they're not exposed to good writing early on!! On the other hand, visually beautiful books that parents love often leave kids cold. This book combines all the best qualities in children's books. My 6-year-old daughter and I both loved Stella Louella. It is sure to become a family favorite. This book would make a great gift, especially if there is a librarian in the family!
