Stead's signature beautiful artwork is present, his pictures always so stunning and colorful (watch a demo of Stead CREATING!) Can we just say that I love that things as simple as squiggly lines can make up tufts of fur or feathers! So beautiful!
I think kids will enjoy the themes of the books: friendship, being yourself, loneliness, feeling like a part of something, and the adventurous spirit of Ruby. I think children will love talking about the pictures, most especially all the different birds...I just LOVED it.
