Bringing a healthy dose of absurdity to the starting school story, Philip and Adamson’s wildly entertaining tale features a number of far-fetched scenarios that could occur on the first day at school. Funny, disarming and reassuring, I Have to Start at School Today is a comforting read for all anxious schoolchildren.
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!
Simon Philip's latest picture book is a riotously funny but ultimately reassuring look at one child's far-fetched imaginings about the first day of school, brought to life by Ged Adamson's (Shark Dog) bold and fabulously expressive illustrations.
