Eclair Goes to Stella's by Michelle Weidenbrenner Book Tour, Review and 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?

“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 Personal Review***

Great book for kids just starting to read, very easy to understand and written from the perspective of a very young girl :)  "Ink-Er-Igible" just made me laugh and laugh!  Eclair and her sister Meggie have to go stay with their Grandma Stella who has lots of animals.  At first Eclair thinks it is a great thing, then she begins to believe her grandma is injuring her animals - but is she right?  The book is a fascinating look at family ties, animal safety and love.  The illustrations are beautifully done - all of them are black and white, no color but they are extremely well-drawn and in-depth.  I thoroughly enjoyed reading it and I hope you will go pick up a copy for your little one and give it a read!  Well worth it :)

  1. I really enjoyed this one too, I was laughing and smiling all the way through.

  2. Hi Erika - Thanks for the kind words about Eclair's story and for reviewing the book! I'm thrilled that you liked it. I noticed you're a Jamberry consultant. I just heard of "Jamberry" two nights ago at a FB party. I won a sheet of designs but I haven't rec'd them yet. I'm eager to try this new product on my nails.
    Thanks again!
