Description

Another adventure begins in this book in the Stella and Sam series as the pair explores the wonders of the natural world. A vast luminous sky, the sun, the stars and the rising moon form the backdrop for their nocturnal expedition. As they encounter raccoons, fireflies, tree frogs and bats, Sam wonders if the moon can swim, if the sun wears pajamas or if he can catch shooting stars with his butterfly net. Stella, as always, has an answer for every question.

Marie-Louise Gay's whimsical prose and enchanting illustrations capture the joys of young children making their first discoveries of the world around them.

Editorial Reviews

...the whimsical illustrations are gorgeously animated and colourful, and Stella and Sam's charming stream-of-consciousness chat strikes a buoyant note...Pure delight.

This is a quiet star of a story that works well either as a group read-aloud or as a bedtime treasure to share one-on-one.
