Bella and Stella Come Home by Anika and Christopher Denise is such a great picture book. Margo fell in love with Stella, and has been pressuring me to invite her over, so that her stuffed pony, Mr. Fazzy, can have a friend. My family has recently moved into a spooky old victorian house, and it was a big adjustment for all of us- especially Margo. My little sister is very brave, but moving was a huge change. This story has really helped her to understand what makes a house a home, and she's feeling much better about everything now. The illustrations are magical, and I'm sure we'll be pulling this book off the shelf many times to read again.
Has anyone else read Bella and Stella Come Home or any other books by Anika and Christopher Denise? We'd love to hear your thoughts!
Stop by this Friday for an interview with this author/illustrator team, plus an exclusive look at some preliminary sketches by Christopher Denise. We'll also be hosting a fabulous holiday giveaway for this book, along with a bonus surprise. ; )
