Book Overview

The school on Elephant Island is holding a talent show, and all the children are excited -- all the children, that is, except for Ella. Belinda's going to do ballet, Tiki's planned a magic act, but Ella doesn't have a single idea. She can't sing, dance, or play an instrument -- doesn't Ella have any talent at all? Then comes the night of the big show, and Ella discovers her own special talent that shines very bright -- even when she's not in the limelight...

Keep the Ella series going!

I bought the first Ella book three years ago as a gift for a friend whose daughter's name was Ella. I read it and decided my daughter needed one as well. The second and now this book both are as good. Ella is a sweet, considerate and helpful friend throughout the series. In this book, she is trying to figure out what her talent is, and then discovers it just by being helpful. We can't wait until the next one!

Another charmer!

The D'Amico's have brought us another wonderful Ella book! The innocent charm of the elephant folk bring a sweetness to the three books that I just love! Steven D'Amico's stunning artwork is the perfect complement to Carmela D'Amico's sensitive handling of another life-lesson story that all children can relate to and enjoy. My granddaughters both love these books and can hardly wait for the next one! Read them all if you get the chance!

A Round of Applause!

Carmela and Steve have done another outstanding job with "Ella Sets the Stage"! The message is timeless, and one every child wants to hear - we all have special talents to celebrate! The illustrations are charming with just enough detail to keep you interested but not be too cluttered. Lola the monkey is a fun new character in the book that kids will enjoy. My great niece loves Ella and I'm excited to give her this new book for Christmas! Denise McKee (Seattle, WA.)

Ella Sets the Stage

Once again the D'Amico's have made it easy for me to choose gifts for all the little ones in my family! Ella Sets the Stage is a wonderful tale, beautifully told and illustrated and addresses the desire we all have to discover our special talent. It's easy to see why Ella has become a favorite with all of the children I enjoy reading to.

ELLA Books Just Keep Getting Better!

In ELLA SETS THE STAGE, Carmela and Steven D'Amico have captured a very real concern many children have and done so in an entertaining, warm-hearted way. My children, who are six and eight have the first two books in the series, and love them. This story, however, stands on its own. You don't need to have read the first two to appreciate the premise. Any child who hasn't discovered what their particular "talent" is, should come away from this story feeling better about themselves.
