STELLA THE UNSTOPPABLE
STELLA THE UNSTOPPABLE and the Magic Underpants
Hi! I’m Stella, and yes, I’ll admit it. My undies are magic. Even though I can tell you don’t believe me, they’re truly the reason that my soccer team has ended its epic losing streak. These underpants are causing quite the stir, and sooner or later, someone’s going to be after them… And then what?
There’s trouble brewing in my pants. Yes. No. Really.
STELLA THE UNSTOPPABLE and the Talent Show Fiasco
Hi! I’m Stella and yes, I’ll admit it. I sprayed the class guinea pig with fire extinguisher foam (who knew those things actually worked?). Now I’ve been forced to enter the school talent show as punishment. You know who usually wins? My arch rival, Ricky-Lee Ventura, who has the voice of an angel. But wait! If I can get help from my (sort-of crazy) dog and my (kind-of odd) friends, I have a brilliant idea…
P.S. Warning: this book is probably going to make you laugh till you cry. Yes. No. Really.
STELLA THE UNSTOPPABLE and the School Camp Kerfuffle
Hi! I’m Stella and yes, I’ll admit it. I am just a teeny tiny bit obsessed with winning the Camp Cup this year. Who wouldn’t be? The winner gets a pizza party! Year Five camp only comes around once in a lifetime and it’s going to be awesome. Except … the campsite is on the edge of an old abandoned graveyard. And there’s a rumour that a kid called Spud Riley went to camp and never came back. AND we’re on a Camp Cup team with Lizzie Lawless, and the thing you need to know about Lizzie Lawless is – oh. Never mind. You’ll see …
It’s going to be hectic. Yes. No. Really.
