This hilarious sequel to STUART'S CAPE is a witty look at an eight-year-old worrier's first day of third grade. Now in paperback!

The first day of school is here, and Stuart is worried. What if he gets stuck in the boys' bathroom? What if he doesn't have anything to show for show and tell? Worst of all, what if his mother really makes him wear those green plaid pants and a shirt with little cowboys on it? Doesn't she know that on a make-friends-or-else kind of day like this what Stuart really needs to wear is his cape?

Our customer reviews

Reason for Reading: Honestly, the illustrations had me! This is a cute little story in a chapter book format that is really intended for reading aloud. Being about a third grader it certainly is for the younger crowd but elementary students will probably have a hard time reading it themselves as it is not exactly an easy read and the print is quite tiny. No, this story is going to be much more appreciated as a read aloud. It\'s the first day of school once again and Stuart, constant worrier, has even more things to worry about than usual. But with the help of his magical cape he made for himself he thinks he\'ll be able to make it big at school this year. Well, magic doesn\'t always work the way you want it to and Stuart ends up having some hilarious adventures and in the end the cape does help him make friends but not because of the magic. The last page contains a step-by step \"how to draw Stuart\" which looks simple enough for anyone to try. The illustrations throughout are really adorable and this is a fun, quick more
