Eva reviews: “Stella’s Starliner”

VTS-352-2Stella’s Starliner by Rosemary Wells

The publisher says… Stella lives in a sparkling home on wheels that’s as silver as a comet in the sky. Inside are lots of cupboards and hiding places, and even a sofa that turns into a bed! Her home is called the Starliner, and it has everything Stella and her mama and daddy need to be happy. Until, that is, some big weasels pop up along the road, saying mean things about the Starliner. Mama comes to soothe away the hurt, and Daddy hitches their home to a truck and drives it away to a brand-new place, where Stella meets friends who are as enchanted as she is with her shiny home. Happily, one person’s old tin can is truly another person’s silver palace!

Eva says… It took me a couple pages to figure out what these guys are, but well… first of all, they’re GIRLS, right? A girl and her mama. But then second of all, they’re FOXES. And they live in a camper! You know, that must be fun. Mama used to talk about how much fun it would be to live in a camper and travel all over the place. But we have a house now so I guess we don’t need to. But we can dream, right?

71frJFLVb3LThe weasels make fun of those foxes’ camper and I think that’s pretty ignorant. I wonder
if those guys [foxes and weasels] are enemies for real or if they just made that up for the story.

I guess now I need to get some fact books about weasels and find out.

Eva’s rating: ♥♥♥♥ (out of five)
