Celebrated children’s author and illustrator Marie-Louise Gay stopped by our offices at the end of September while in Toronto as part of a cross-Canada tour promoting the 10th anniversary of her first Stella book. Her latest book, When Stella Was Very, Very Small, goes back in time to answer the questions often asked by the children who read and love her Stella books: Where does Stella get her wild ideas? How big is Stella’s imagination? What did Stella look like when she was small? How did Stella come to be the big sister to Sam that we all know and love?

Also newly available is the My Little Stella Library — four mini Stella books in an adorable boxed set.

P.S. This photo of us with Marie-Louise was chosen as PW Daily’s picture of the day! We’re a nice-looking bunch, aren’t we?
