About this item

Praise for Stella Is a Star:

"Murphy's paintings with collage provide all the ideals of ballet, from frothy tutus to embroidered bodices, and her animals' expressions are priceless. Her upright pigs in leotards are graceful and Madame's stern expressions are flawless. . . . This story will please ballet fans, and any little girls who have felt left out."School Library Journal

Stella is back barking on Broadway! Author and acclaimed actress/performer Bernadette Peters offers a charming tale of how two former shelter dogs, after a few ruff-patches, became devoted friends.

In this companion title to Peters' New York Times bestsellers Broadway Barks andStella Is a Star, the beloved canine heroine Stella finds herself alone. Her "mom" (who looks a lot like Bernadette Peters) goes on a journey to bring a shelter dog named Charlie to live with them. After a car ride with stops in Oklahoma and St. Louis, Charlie arrives in what Stella thinks of as her territory!

At first, Stella is jealous of all the attention Charlie gets. But when she's hurt and needs a friend, Charlie shows her that he can be just that. In the end, Stella dances and Charlie yodels while Mom plays piano and sings.

Young readers with new siblings, or new pets, will connect emotionally to this pet pair. Kids will understand Stella's frustrations and will root for Charlie, too!
