Stellarella, It’s Saturday
Deborah W. Dykes illustrated by Christina M. Ebert-Klaven
Stellarella, a feisty, frizzy-headed five-year-old, has an indomitable spirit and a creative, sassy style that make her irresistible to young readers. In Stellarella, It’s Saturday!, Stellarella and her bulldog, Tank, go on an imaginary trip to the local farmer’s market where they meet a cast of vibrant and diverse women. When the trip gets rained out, Mama turns broken plans into a new adventure.
