Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

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.<br> <br> They say there's a girl <br> Who lives by the woods <br> In a crooked old house <br> With no garden but gloom. <br> <br> She doesn't have parents. <br> No one knows her name. <br> <br> But the people in town <br> Call her Wee Sister Strange. <br> <br> 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!

Ages 4-8.

Horn Book Review

Little orphan "Wee Sister Strange" roams the woods at night, free-spirited yet seeking something unknown. She finally finds it when she overhears a mother reading a book (Sister's own story) to her child. Sister snuggles to sleep in a leafy bed outside their window. The watercolor and colored-pencil illustrations and the twee verse's cadence both evoke an eerie tone--effective if questionable for bedtime reading. (c) Copyright 2018.
