Stella Blu the cockapoo is on her way across the ocean to a city called Madrid. Stella’s father (a human) is the new U.S. Ambassador to Spain and Stella is going to serve as the Ambassadog. She will make her new home at the U.S. Embassy and represent the United States all across Spain, from parades and palaces to parks and parties. Living in a new country means that Stella will explore a new neighborhood, make new friends, and even learn a new language. Being Ambassadog is exciting. Stella shares American traditions with her Spanish friends, charms the Embassy staff, and—best of all—tries new foods, like jamón and galettas. Serving your country is a big job for a little dog, but this pup’s determination makes her mother and father proud, and even attracts the attention of the King and Queen of Spain! Children will love Stella’s international adventures as she learns that living in a new place might seem scary at first, but trying new things can be fun.
