Stella Endicott and the Anything-is-Possible Poem
by Kate DiCamillo
This is the newest addition to the Tales from Deckawoo Drive series about the neighbors of Mercy Watson, the clever, adventurous, toast-eating pig! Stella is starting second grade, and her teacher, Miss Liliana, believes in “listening closely and speaking softly and singing loudly.” She also believes, like Stella, that anything is possible in stories and poems! But, Stella’s classmate, Horace Broom, doesn’t agree, especially when it comes to pigs and where they live. After being banished to the principal’s office, will they find a way to accept that anything can happen?
