Eclair Goes To Stella's Review


NEW RELEASE........CHILDREN'S BOOK BY MICHELLE WEIDENBENNER

Hi, I’m Éclair and I’m seven. My sister Meggie is two. When mom got sick we had to go live with Stella, my dad’s mom, the one with maroon colored hair. I begged Dad not to make us stay with her because she beat her horse and was going to eat her rooster, but he didn’t believe me. Even after I pretended I was going to barf, he left us with Stella.

So there we were, Meggie and me, on a strange pink farm with a skinny horse, a mean rooster, and Stinky Stella who had a living room filled with dead deer heads.

What would she do to us?

Would we end up on her wall too?

Book Reading Age
First – Third grade GIRLS. 5 – 9 year olds


My Review


Emily Claire is a vibrant seven year old who just wants things to stay the same. As would any seven year old. If it isn't broke don't fix it right? Well, unfortunately her mom is in need of some "personal time". She hasn't been as happy as Emily is use to seeing her. While mommy is away daddy has to work so Emily and her younger sister have to go stay with their paternal grandmother Stella. 

I really enjoyed reading this book. I love children and I personally know many who would enjoy this story. The spelling of the words she tried to pronounce were hilarious and cute. The theme is very relatable. I remember visiting family members I didn't know very well and thinking the worst of them before thinking the best. Making them earn my trust verses earning theirs. Children are just small immature adults. lol 

Overall this was a good book and I am not ashamed to say I want to know what happens next!

“Do you want to name her?” Stella said. 
I squeezed my eyes to think again. “Star. She looks like a movie star.” 
I love it.” Stella reached up to give me a high-five. “Star, it is.”
