Pye’s digital illustrations are full of shadows brightened by both a few lanterns and the moon, never letting readers forget the specialness of this particular school.
Beneath the only-slightly-spooky trappings, it’s a sweet and gentle exploration of first-day jitters.
Puttock’s sweet story of encouragement pairs well with Pye’s delightful illustrations. A first purchase, especially for family-friendly Halloween storytimes.
—School Library Journal
A sweet, entertaining story that will comfort those nervous to start school themselves.
