“Lets make snow angels”, said Stella. “With wide feathery wings”. “Do snow angels fly? asked Sam. “Do snow angels sing?”. “Of course” said Stella. “Can’t you hear them?” “Yes!” whispered Sam.
I love all the Stella books. In Stella, Queen of the Snow her story takes a chilly turn as we follow Stella and her little brother Sam into a snowstorm. Its Sam’s first snowstorm and he is very curious. Can you eat a snowflake? Is the snow cold? He asks all sorts of questions- and Stella always has an answer. As always, her imagination, curiosity, and energetic character comes through loud and clear.
The best descriptor for this book is whimsical- the writing paired with the beautiful watercolours make it a great read-aloud for a snowy day.
