Ever wonder what your favorite lovey would do if you let them be in charge of playtime? Imagine being the fairiest of fairy princesses, the unicorniest unicorns, or tea party hostesses with the mostesses. Seeing is believing in this carefree romp of freedom and fun, featuring Stella Bella and her lively doll, Tallulah.

They are inseparable playmates who get into all sorts of mischief. In the middle of the pair’s high jinks, though, Stella Bella’s conscience always leads her the right way-until its tea time and the cookie jar gets broken. When Mommy discovers the mess, uh oh, the two are separated. Will Stella Bella and Tallulah ever be able to play together again?

Review by Stacey

There once was a little girl called Stella Bella whose favourite friend was her dolly, Tallulah. One rainy afternoon the pair had to make their own fun inside so they came up with some ideas but after carrying them out they realised that Stella’s mum wouldn’t be too happy about them, so they cleaned them up. That was until one of the ideas couldn’t be clean because they had smashed it.

This young children’s book is a quick read at just 40 pages and contains some amazing full-page illustrations. The first thing I noticed was how American it is. Now, this isn’t a bad thing by any means, it is just some of the wording children who are not American might not fully understand and you may have to explain them to the young reader.

To me, the meaning behind the book is to make children understand that not everything that they think will be fun to do is actually the right thing to do and to think first, rather than like Stella who had to clean up after herself. Will little children take this message in, maybe, doing things wrong and realising their mistakes is how children learn. However, hopefully by seeing Stella’s mistakes, they might not have to find out drawing on the walls of their home is wrong!!

I’m sure little children will find That’s Coola, Tallulah! a lot of fun and will be laughing at the things Stella and her Dolly get up to. It has been written amusingly and it was lovely to see a little girl having fun with her Dolly and using her imagination to find things to do rather than rely on technology.
