Stella's Starliner is charming, as are all of Rosemary Wells' books. Stella lives in her silver home and is happy there until some weasels tease her about it. Eventually Stella comes to realize that her home is wonderful and she shouldn't worry what others say. Older kids will understand the simple lesson this book teaches; younger kids will love the sweet story and Wells' illustrations.
