Product description

A hilarious picture book about the joys of school from the top class team, Jeanne Willis and Tony Ross. Honor Brown cannot find a good word to say about her school despite much prompting. She insists that her teacher is a warty toad, the water tray has killer sharks in it, and even her friends are loathsome. But when the time comes to move on to "Big School," she sits in the corner and sobs! Maybe it wasn't so bad after all.

Review quote

"A boon for parents" Independent "Should go down well with children of four and over." Daily Telegraph "Pokes fun at fear of school with lavish doses of absurdity." Glasgow Herald "An absolute hoot" Books for Keeps "'Honor Brown has a huge imagination and she hasn't a good word to say about her school. She tells people her teacher is a warty toad, the water tray has killer sharks in it ... But when she has to move on to 'Big School' she realises it wasn't so bad after all.'" -- Hayley Macdonald Brown Waterstones Books Quarterly Issue 17
