"A reassuring look at feeling shy on the first day in the classroom."--The Independent (U.K.) It's Mouse's first night at Miss Moon's Moonlight School but she is shy, too shy to even say hello. Luckily, with help from Miss Moon and her new friends Bat, Cat, and Owl, a game of hide-and-seek makes Mouse feel right at home.

Review quote

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.
