Bernadette Peters and Liz Murphy, the terrific team behind the New York Times bestselling Broadway Barks, are back with a story about Stella, a pup who would rather be a graceful pig ballerina than what she really is: a dog that no one likes. Bernadette Peters’ lovable Stella learns the lessons of self-acceptance, following her heart’s desires, and most important, that it’s okay just to be herself. The book includes a CD with an original song by Bernadette Peters.
