What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

With a lyrical text and gorgeous, ethereal illustrations, here is a mesmerizing and magical original bedtime fairy tale reminiscent of Emily Winfield Martin’s Dream Animals, and perfect for reading aloud. They say there’s a girl Who lives by the woods In a crooked old house With no garden but gloom. She doesn’t have parents. No one knows her name. But the people in town Call her Wee Sister Strange. Like Emily Winfield Martin’s bestselling Dream Animals, here is a bedtime read-aloud sure to entrance young listeners. Each evening, as the shadows grow long, Wee Sister Strange climbs from her window and runs into the woods. She talks to the owls and rides on a bear. She clambers up trees and dives into the bog. She is searching for something…. She looks far and wide, over forest and marsh. What is it she seeks? Why, it’s a wee bedtime story to help her fall asleep!

3.5 / 7.0

The illustrations are gorgeous, and the tone is lilting (although the rhyming is a little off) but the story itself is just a little creepy and sad… a little girl all alone riding vicious bear, burying owl bones, and searching for you reading her story so she can listen to you read it outside your window. Yikes.
