[Storytime!] Stella Visits the Poppy Flowers and The Whispering River

stella 1It’s a sunny day and there are no clouds in the sky. You breathe in the fresh air, the strong fragrance of fresh flowers hits you. You look ahead of you and see a small dot growing larger as it gets closer. It’s not quite clear as the heat rippling in the distance causes you to squint your eyes.

The small dot, now a blob is closer to you now. It’s no blob, it’s Stella!

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!

You’re sitting by the Pond, eating fish-flavoured biscuits with Cuddle, Gen, and Varian, when Xiaolong comes barreling through the Pond.

“Friends, come quick!” says Xiaolong, beckoning for you all to follow. “She’s here! She’s made it!”

Who’s here, Xiaolong?” you ask, as you get up to follow her. The others look excited; Cuddle runs ahead of Xiaolong and everyone else, Varian stands a little taller and brushes the dirt off their feet, and Gen looks a little shy but eager.

“Our newest friend! Our newest member of the Pond family!”

Friends, I am so happy you are here! It is with excitement and joy that I finally get to introduce to you all my second co-blogger! In March, you all met Cuddle and Joce. Today, you all get to meet the Pond’s newest friend – and you are all going to love her. 💛
