Stella Fairy of the Forest

Written by: Marie-Louise Gay

First line: "Stella!" called Sam.

Why you should read this book: Two semi-feral children follow their fancies into the forest, the big sister boldly leading them on while the little hangs back a bit. It's a pretty story where nothing exactly happens, but a relationship, full of love and tenderness and excitement, is beautifully illustrated. It's just on the edge of magic.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You would never allow little kids to run unsupervised in the woods.
