Product Description

Sadie has a wonderful, wide imagination. In her cardboard box she sails the ocean looking for land, she plays with her friends on the street and her friends in her books-whether as a mermaid or a boy raised by wolves. She makes castles out of cushions and flies back to her house, and most of all, she loves stories. Exquisitely illustrated with an eye that captures the magic of childhood by Julie Morstad.

Publisher's Description

Sadie is a little girl with a big imagination. She has been a girl who lived under the sea and a boy raised by wolves. She has had adventures in wonderland and visited the world of fairytales. She whispers to the dresses in her closet and talks to birds in the treetops. She has wings that take her anywhere she wants to go, but that always bring her home again. She likes to make things -- boats out of boxes and castles out of cushions. But more than anything Sadie likes stories, because you can make them from nothing at all. For Sadie, the world is so full of wonderful possibilities ... This is Sadie, and this is her story.

Editorial Reviews

Selected, Buzzfeed's list of 25 Absurdly Delightful Books to Read With Kids, 2015


"As in previous collaborations like When You Were Small and Where You Came From, O’Leary and Morstad put forth a playful, imagination-first portrait of childhood, introducing a girl named Sadie who is equally at home in the expanses of her mind as she is in the outside world." - Publishers Weekly


"This award-winning duo beautifully convey the magic that is to be found in reading or listening to a story. The appealing text is accompanied by lush drawings rendered in gouache, ink, and Photoshop that lend it a fanciful feel in the best way possible. With its leisurely pace and verdant illustrations, this book is a delight for bedtime as well as an excellent storytime choice paired with Crockett Johnson’s Harold and the Purple Crayon and Peter Bently’s King Jack and the Dragon ...." - Starred Review, School Library Journal


"Morstad's soft-palette illustrations engage perfectly with O'leary's text creating a whimsical kid-centred picture book that will be enjoyed by both children and adults. With something new to discover upon each encounter, This is Sadie is sure to become a favourite bedtime read." - Starred Review, Quill and Quire


"In Morstad’s quietly delightful gouache and watercolor illustrations, black-haired Sadie looks both delicate and strong, pretty and at times androgynous. She’s a mermaid and "a boy raised by wolves," howling at the moon; she carefully chooses dresses and artfully hammers nails into wood. It’s an appealingly rounded glimpse of girlhood that’s somehow both timeless and modern." - The New York Times

"[A] … tender and playful ode to make believe…. Sadie is never the same person for more than two pages, preferring instead to inhabit different characters, often inspired by the books she reads. Every moment of the day is a new opportunity to slip into a new role. Sadie isn’t going through an identity crisis; she just wants to explore every possibility of being."
