I Have to Start at School Today

Another laugh-out-loud picture book from the award-winning author of You Must Bring a Hat, I Don’t Know What to Call My Cat and Be More Bernard .

I have to start at school today.
“You’ll have such fun!” my parents say.
I know they think I’ll be okay,
But what if things don’t go my way?

Starting at a new school can be scary business. From rhinos at the gate to bears who won’t share, there are all SORTS of things that could go wrong. Luckily, Grandma is on hand to point out that there’s no need to fright, as things could just as easily . . . go right!

Our Review Panel says...

Starting at school is a big adventure, especially when a cheeky older brother tells you some wild stories about it. What if there is a big bear not sharing your chair, or a grumpy rhino at the gate with a secret password that you haven’t learned, or a bassoon-playing baboon making an awful racket? Fortunately, a wise Grandma is on hand to alleviate worries and give a positive spin to the imaginative tales. A funny and light-hearted take on first-day-of-school worries.
