Stella’s Starliner

By Rosemary Wells

Though she is teased about her silver mobile home, little Stella never loses sight of life’s true gifts in this sensitive, ultimately uplifting story.

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 mummy and daddy need to be happy. Until, that is, some big weasels pop up along the road, saying mean things about the Starliner. Mummy 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!

Reviews

'With its underlying themes of difference, acceptance, security, loss of innocence, resilience and what really makes home a home, this story, told in an effectively colloquial style, offers plenty of food for thought and discussion. In particular I’d want to talk with children about what to me at least, is the somewhat enigmatic and surprising ending, Wells’ mixed media illustrations beautifully capture the changing emotions of Stella and her parents; the faces are enchanting' Red Reading Hub

'This is a delightful book with the vivid text beautifully matched with the strong graphics, enabling the reader to become immersed in the story.' Children’s Books Ireland Recommended Read
