A tender family story that will dance into your heart.
Stella is a kitten who loves to dance. But as she grows up, Stella dances less and less. Has she lost her passion for pirouettes and pliés? Or is she just busy with other things, like stalking bugs, soaking up the sunshine--and finding a quiet place to have her kittens?
With warmth and charm that recalls the best-loved classics of children's literature, Stella's story of growing up is perfect for families to share.
