(ages 4-8)

Bella loves nearly everything, and boy is she loud about it! On a school trip to the art museum she is so excited she just can�t contain herself. Disapproval from all finally dampens her spirits, and when it�s time to leave she races for the bus. But it's the wrong one! Realizing her mistake she bellows, "Stop the bus! I'm on the wrong bus!" Her loud voice saves the day and her happy spirit. And the whole class joins in.

This is the story of how one brave little girl's difference, turns out to be one of her greatest assets.

School Library Journal says, This charming picture book celebrates a child's enthusiasm for her world. Kirkus Reviews calls BELLA "irrepressible."

* Selected by G.P. Putnam's Sons as their best picture book of 2008 and submitted for the Golden Kite Award.

An old rice farmer and his wife long for a baby. The Water God answers their prayers�with a little snail. No matter. They love and cherish him. He grows up to talk, sing, drive his father's team of horses, and marry a rich landowner's daughter. Surprising as all this is, the even more surprising truth of the little snail will be revealed when the love between Tsubu and his wife is put to the test.

This timeless Japanese folktale reaffirms the sacredness of all life and the transformative power of love.

Kirkus Reviews calls the writing "perfect."
