The illustrations for Spectacular Stella were created by Marion Hill. Her beautiful watercolours bring both Stella and Angelo to life. Stella’s story and illustrations bring a sense of peace to story time for you and your child.
This gentle story has been adapted by Sunday School teachers as a drama for their Christmas play.
“Come, Stella, our newest baby, come play with me,” the wind whistled to the clay.
Just as I opened my eyes to the world for the first time, the wind gathered up my blanket and me, and carried us up, up, out the window and into the new day.
“Whee, this is fun!” I sang.
Without warning, the wind changed direction and dropped me. Down, down, down, I plummeted, like an injured bird. Plop! I landed in a huge pile of leaves.
“Ohhhhhh,” I gasped.
