Eclair Goes To Stella's Book Tour


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?

“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.”

***MY HONEST REVIEW OF ECLAIR GOES TO STELLA'S***


When Emily Clair, learns that she and Meggie, her two-year-old sister, have to move to Indiana to live with their grandma, she is not happy at all. Her dad explains to Éclair (that’s what he calls her), that her mom had to leave because she was sick, and that his job involved traveling. Until he could find another job, this was the only solution.

When Éclair meets Stella, as grandma likes to be called, she immediately dislikes her. Éclair thinks Stella smells and that she mistreats her farm animals. As she slowly gets to know Stella, Éclair finds out how wrong she is.



This story as told by Éclair shows the innocence of a seven-year-old's thoughts and fears, and takes you back to a time in your own life when everything unknown was scary, but wonderful at the same time.
