Welcome to Issue #5!

Hello, lovelies! It feels like it’s been so, so long and I am so happy to be back! stella 1

Last week, I didn’t feel very well so Xiaolong kindly took over for me! Her costume was so adorable and very convincing – hehe!

This week I went on a little adventure through the dandelion forest and up the mossy hills of the mosquitoes. They were very friendly and invited me for tea where they kindly told me some of the book news they had heard from the bumbly bees of bumble. It was so lovely visiting them and I can’t wait to share the book news they told me to you! I hope you enjoy!

❤ Stella

Welcome to Issue #4!

Oh? You walk up to ‘The Pond Book News’ stall, expecting to see your friend Stella the Dragonfly for your weekly update of book news, except… it isn’t Stella! It’s Xiaolong, dressed up as Stella!

Xiaolong the pink axolotl, dressed up as Stella the Dragonfly; wearing a purple newsy cap, dragonfly wings, and holding up a roll of newspaper.“Hello friend!” she greets, handing your roll of book news to you. “Here’s your book news for this week!”

“Where’s Stella?” you ask as you take your weekly copy of The Pond Book News.

“She’s sick,” she says, her gills a little droopy. “She’s been working so hard, so I decided to help her with the book news this week! I bet you almost didn’t recognise me with my amazing dragonfly costume. I guess we’re just such good friends that you knew right away, didn’t you friend?”

Uhhhh. Yes Xiaolong. That’s the reason why.

Text: The Pond Book News. Issue 01: So many books, too little time! Releases, sequels, and featured bloggers.

stella 6You’re walking through the forest, the breeze smells like pine trees and daisies. As you keep walking on the winding path, you hear a rustling above you. You look up but can’t seem to see what is making to rustling sound So you carry on walking. You hear the rustling again but do nothing about it this time. Suddenly, Stella pops into your view. She flies right up to you, and gives you a wave. “Hello, friend! It’s so nice to see you again! I was flying to deliver some book news but, I noticed you were walking home already so i came to surprise you! I hope I didn’t scare you! “I’m so excited to tell you what’s happening in the book world this week. There’s so much to tell you! But, first I’d like to tell you about this cool book, Daisy Jones & The Six, that I’m reading about at the moment! It’s about how a band that formed in 1970’s California grew to be a huge success. I’m finding it super interesting and I really like the format that it’s written in! It’s almost like its written like one of those music documentaries about old bands. It’s really fun and the cover is truly gorgeous! Now, on to the book news!
