|Stella, Unleashed (Sterling, 2008) is a fun picture book poetry collection by Linda Ashman. It features clever and heartwarming poems written by Stella, a newly adopted dog. I wish you could see the hilarious illustration (by Paul Meisel) that goes with this poem! Picture a woman flat on her back by the front door, one shoe knocked off, purse and salad spilled all over, and an eager pooch standing on her and "welcoming" her.
