In her first middle-grade novel, award-winning picture book author and illustrator Angela Dominguez tells a heartwarming story based on her own experiences growing up Mexican-American. Stella DIaz loves marine animals, especially her betta fish, Pancho. But Stella DIaz is not a betta fish. Betta fish like to be alone, while Stella loves spending time with her mom and brother and her best friend Jenny. Trouble is, Jenny is in another class this year, and Stella feels very lonely. When a new boy arrives in Stella's class, she really wants to be his friend, but sometimes Stella accidentally speaks Spanish instead of English and pronounces words wrong, which makes her turn roja. Plus, she has to speak in front of her whole class for a big presentation at school! But she better get over her fears soon, because Stella DIaz has something to say! Stella DIaz Has Something to Say introduces an infectiously charming new character with relatable writing and adorable black-and-white art throughout. Simple Spanish vocabulary is also integrated within the text, providing a bilingual element. 2019 Sid Fleischman Award winner A 2019 Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) Notable Children's Book A New York Public Library Best Book for Kids 2018 Top 10 Showstopper Favorite One of Chicago Public Library's "Best of the Best Books 2018"
