Meet Stella Batts. She is eight-years old and she loves to write. She loves to write lists; like her favorite things and kids in her class. And she's writing her autobiography. Stella's favorite color is yellow and she LOVES fudge. As a matter of fact, there is a special fudge counter at her family's candy store because fudge is one of her favorite things to eat!
But Stella has just one problem - her name. A boy from her class keeps calling her 'Smella' after she trips on their class nature walk. ("I don't even want to say what I landed in, it was too gross, so I'm just going to leave out that part."). So Stella decides there's really only one thing to do: she has to change her name. After all, how hard can it be to pick a new name? But it's not as easy as it sounds.

Great story that teaches good morals.
What did you love best about Needs a New Name: Stella Batts, Book 1?
I loved being able share this fun, wholesome story with my daughter. All of the content was positive. I would love to see more content like this out there. My daughter and I will read the whole sires once the rest of the series is Whispersync for Voice enabled.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
We listened to this book on the way home from vacation and my kids where enjoying it so much that they stayed in the car while I unloaded because they wanted to finish the epilogue.
