Review: Stella the Unstoppable and the Talent Show Fiasco (Book #1)

Stella is unstoppable. She’s bold and daring. She’s a born leader.

But she also has a knack for getting into trouble with the school principal, and Stella’s latest shenanigans (which included spraying her teacher with the fire extinguisher) have landed her with an unusual punishment. 

For her crimes, Mrs H has declared Stella must perform in the school’s talent show. 

She has six weeks to put together an amazing performance or else a different (and likely horrifying) punishment will befall her.

With the help of her friends (whom Stella forces to participate), Stella comes up with the perfect performance. But what will Mrs H say when she sees the slightly unconventional (and hilarious) show? And more importantly, what will she do to Stella?

Stella the Unstoppable and the Talent Show Fiasco is book one in a brilliant new series for junior readers from Richard Newsome, author of the Billionaire series. 

It’s witty and funny and totally addictive, with characters kids will relate to, jokes that will make them laugh out loud and a fast-paced and entertaining plot they will adore. 

Fans of funny, relatable reads will love Stella and her antics. She’s the kid who wants to do it all (even if she doesn’t have the skills). She’s the cool and crazy friend every kid wants to have. 

Life is never boring when Stella is around, and I cannot wait to see what shenanigans she gets up to in book two!
