Stella DuBois Kowalski (A Streetcar Named Desire) Stella is the sister of Blanche DuBois, the main character in Tennessee Williams’ 1947 play, A Streetcar Named Desire. Raised as genteel Southern belles in a time long gone, the sisters have made their separate ways in life. Stella has adapted to the course realities of the modern world, while Blanche drifts farther and farther away into denial and madness. Stella has hitched her wagon to the strutting, uber-masculine World War II hero, Stanley Kowalski, and knowingly, willingly lives with him in circumstances that appear brutish and reduced to her sister. The payoff, for Stella, is an earthy relationship that produces a son and that provides her with sensual satisfaction, in contrast to the ever increasing flights of fancy to which Blanche succumbs in her quest to regain and maintain a foothold in a society and moral purview that is gone with the wind. Stella is the survivor, and she will protect that choice at any cost.

Stella, Star of the Sea (Marie-Louise Gay) - In Stella, Star of the Sea (which won a Governor General's Award for illustration), the gifted picture-book artist introduces the irresistible duo of Sam and his spirited older sister, Stella. "Stella and Sam were spending a day at the sea shore," Gay begins this playful celebration of summer, adding, "It was Sam's very first time." Stella is an adventurer, eager to dive to the ocean floor, tame sea horses, and dig a hole to China, but her little brother, Sam, is made of more cautious stuff. When Stella, looking out at the sea from the top of a delightfully round sand dune, exclaims, "Isn't it beautiful, Sam?" he observes with a characteristic deadpan, "It's very big... and noisy." This book is part of a series of more Stella books. Recommended for ages 4-8.
