Eclair Goes to Stella's Review & Giveaway

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?

Book Reading Age

First – Third grade GIRLS. 5 – 9 year olds


Do you have a little girl in elementary school or know one?  Well, here is the perfect little chapter book for them.  My daughter would've loved this one when she was little.  She loves animals, and especially horses.  I think all little girls love horses and animals in general.

When Eclair has to go to her grandmother's with her sister, she doesn't want to go.  I think most kids would be afraid to go live with someone they've never met in another state.  Of course, I wonder why she never met her grandmother before this but that is beside the point.  It would be scary for anyone to do this but when Eclair sees all of the animals, she is excited.  Then she is also afraid because it looks like her weird grandmother hurts these animals.

This book is great at showing how difficult change can be.  It also shows that some good things can come from difficult changes.  I love that it is centered around a little girl and animals.  This book also deals with sibling rivalry, and parents separating.  I'm not really sure why the mother left, if she is really sick or if she just left.

I give this book 4 stars.  I'm sure little girls that have started reading chapter books will love this book.  Boys on the other hand probably won't like the book as much because there are no boys in the book.

“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.”
