Illustrated by Lisa Campbell Ernst

About The Book

Join Stella Louella as she races through the streets of her town to find and return her missing library book before the due date.

Studious Stella Louella is frantically trying to find her missing library book, so she can return it before the due date passes.

Looking every place she can imagine, Stella ends up visiting everyone in town, from the people at the fix-it shop, the diner, the police station, the scouts, and each neighbor in between.

“From the start of this cheerful cumulative tale, Ernst gives youngsters crowded spreads chock-a-block with amusing particulars.” – Publishers Weekly
