The Lovereading4Kids comment

Shy Migs begins school worrying about how he will ever have the courage to join in. Perhaps dressing up will help him? Donning a hat, a cloak and some boots Migs transformers himself into a super-hero. Now he doesn’t mind joining in! But Migs is too super-charged. No-one wants him to play. Luckily, Migs comes up with a new plan that makes everyone happy. School turns out to be fun after all!

Synopsis

A Big Day for Migs by Jo Hodgkinson

It's a big day for Migs - he is starting school! He is looking forward to it, but he is also feeling a bit apprehensive, until, that is, he finds the perfect thing to help him overcome his shyness.

Reviews

Exuberant illustrations perfectly complement the pacey rhyming text. Quirky characters are a delight and the riotous scenes are packed with amusing details and visual jokes. There is excitement at every turn of the page. Books for Keeps

Vivaciously illustrated and full of colour, energy, rhyme, animals and magic, this is a story with all the right ingredients to make it a favourite. EYE

Praise for The Talent Show:

'This rollicking, rhythmical tale is a heart-warming treat! Red House Children's Book Award'
