2014 Award
Stella's Starliner
( by Rosemary Wells, Candlewick $15.99 Score: )

Stella and her Mom live in a silver "house" all week while her Dad drives off to work in his red truck. For a long time Stella was content; but then some nasty weasels hurt Stella's feelings by calling her home nothing but a broken down old trailer. Magically, Dad arrives and carries his family off through the sky to a place where others appreciate the beauty of their silver home. The story just doesn't measure up to the beauty of Rosemary Wells' detailed illustrations; a charming dual homage to the pointillists and Van Gogh with his starry night. 4 & up.
