I liked this book but wanted it to be a little bit longer, then end did feel a bit rushed. The illustrations are wonderful and Wells' signature cozy style makes this a very inviting book.
I like how it flys through the air.
I agree with BD_EN_Kids in that an opportunity about acceptance and pride was missed here but i cant help but love the book. i think it properly reflected that in stella's case some people will love her home some will not but its up to stella how he feels at the end of the day.
Sadly, I am not impressed by Wells' latest attempt. It starts predictably enough, but where it takes a turn, it ends up feeling like the character is going backwards. Stella gets teased for living in a trailer and is sad. She talks to mom about it. Next thing you know, Stella and her family are moving. At first I thought Stella was dreaming, but, no. They just move and nobody needs to face the bad feelings or work through teasing. True acceptance of one's situation and developing pride is working through the it, not running away. Wells has missed the mark here.
Really good children's book about acceptance and being proud of whatever you and your family has.
"a squillionaire" agreed stella.
