Meet Ella McBella, energetic and imaginative! By day Ella is fearless and seeks adventure. But by night she fears shadows, the globby green monsters and those strange sounds, which seem to get louder as the skies grows darker. The sun might be sleeping, but not Ella McBella. This is a poetic tale about the power of courage and imagination to help little ones tackle big fears.

Author Biography

Laura Pells has been sharing her love of literacy in the classroom for over 16 years, in addition to writing and creating curriculums for book authors. A story-teller since she could first read, Laura is well-versed in showing young students various ways to express themselves through creativity and the written word. Likewise, and as illustrated through her first children’s picture book, she has a playful perspective in helping children face their fears and to help them foster resiliency and grit. Laura lives in Centennial, Colorado with her husband and two children.
