Written by Janell Cannon, the children's book Stellaluna is about a fruit bat pup who gets separated from her mother during a nighttime owl attack. After landing in a bird's nest with three baby birds, Stellaluna is then raised by her adopted mother to behave like a bird. Eventually, she is reunited with her real mother. Stellaluna tells a timeless tale about what happens when, while in the process of discovering one's self-identity, someone tries to be something that they are not. The Eisemann Center (2351 Performance Drive in Richardson) presents a puppet show adaptation of Stellaluna's bittersweet tale as a part of their Family Theatre Series. The show begins 2:30 p.m. Sunday in the Center's Hill Performance Hall. Tickets range from $10 to $20.
