'Do you write all day? Where does a story start? Where do your ideas come from? Do you put a cat in every book? How did you learn to draw? Do you have a hamster? How many books do you make in one day? Are you Stella?' Whenever Marie-Louise Gay speaks to children about her books, she finds that they have many amazing questions about writing, drawing, ideas and other surprising subjects. Her delightful answers can be found in this fictional encounter with some very curious children, who collaborate with her on writing and illustrating a wonderful and evocative story-within-a-story.
