About the Author
Simon Puttock has written several children’s books, among them a winner of a Scottish Children’s Book Award. He has lived in New Zealand, Trinidad, Australia, England, and Barbados. Now he lives in Edinburgh, Scotland.
Ali Pye has wanted to be an illustrator ever since she was little, when she drew stories and stuck the pages together to make little books. But it took her a few years and a stint as a copy editor before she started drawing professionally in 2010. She lives in London.
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. —Kirkus Reviews
Beneath the only-slightly-spooky trappings, it’s a sweet and gentle exploration of first-day jitters. —Publishers Weekly
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. —Booklist
