Stellarella! It's Saturday!

Story by Deborah (Debo) W. Dykes

Illustrations by Christina Mattison Klaven

 

Stellarella, a feisty, frizzy-headed five year old, has an indomitable spirit, sassy style and a creative imagination that make her irresistible to any young reader.  In Stellarella: It’s Saturday!, Stellarella and her herculean and intuitive bulldog, named “Tank,” go on an imaginary trip to the local farmer’s market where they meet a diverse cast of vibrant and independent female characters: Ms. Maria with her zucchini fritters, Ms. Leanna with her tomato toast, and Ms. Thibodeaux with her bodacious banjo! Sadly, the actual market trip is rained out. But the rain does not dampen Stellarella’s exuberant spirit. By the end of the day, Stellarella learns that disappointment can be turned into something surprisingly happy and fun.​

Stellarella! It’s Saturday!  is a colorfully illustrated book. Throughout the story Stellarella and Tank encounter adult women who are culturally and ethically diverse, and who are very willing to share their talents and gifts with inquisitive and curious children. Stellarella! It’s Saturday! introduces young children to a cast of female characters who offer a variety of role models who can inspire and encourage.

Why a book like Stellarella! It's Saturday?  This little book grew out of my passion to raise a prophetic voice against the suppression and oppression and abuse of women and girls. Although many are writing excellent books and articles to raise awareness of women's inequality, I think they are missing the primary root of the problem. My Stellarella stories address this issue and invite systemic change, a paradigm shift, towards a balanced world.
