Ruby Cover II Have you met Ruby? She’s a small bird in a very big world, and she’s looking for a friend.

A gentle tale about tiny but fearless Ruby’s quest to find her place in the world.

“Stead’s latest is simultaneously a story about making friends and a celebration of line, color, and form… Ruby exemplifies the willingness to see the good in everyone, and Stead’s artwork echoes her joyousness.” – Publishers Weekly, Starred Review

“Stead follows up A Home for Bird (2012) with an equally joyous celebration of color, texture, and memorable, winsome characters.” – Booklist, Starred Review
