One Potato Review

Here is where fearlessness comes from. This might have gone horribly, smarmily wrong from the beginning, though for readers familiar with the indomitable explorer from earlier books, Stella’s back story sounds as true as it probably is marketable. She’s poised. Unaffected. And while her orange hair alone is possibly enough to capture the attention of very young readers, the story also ends with a (cheerful) reminder about the responsibilities of growing up.
