Stella, Star Explorer
Reading Level: K − 1st Grade

From the author of I Love My Fangs! and I Love My Fur! comes a charming, out-of-this-world picture book about a young girl's galactic adventure and the aliens who show her there's no place like home.

Stella is tired of living on Earth. She's seen it all, and it's boring. So she builds herself a rocket ship and blasts off into space with her dog, Luna--they deserve a change of scenery! But a chance encounter with some alien friends leads to a tour of the galaxy that helps put things into perspective. Could Earth have more going for it than Stella thought?
