"I'll help you get dressed," said Stella.

"No," said Sam. "I can do it by myself."

But Sam takes a roundabout route to getting dressed and, as usual, his big sister Stella is there to help . . . but this time Sam has the last laugh. Vibrant and humorous, Marie-Louise Gay's stories and pictures explore the endearing, intimate scenes of young childhood.
