The Lovereading4Kids comment
Toby’s little brother Benjamin goes to nursery and loves it. His big sister Clemmie goes to special school, and she loves it too. But Toby is starting at a new school, and he hates it. He hasn’t any friends, doesn’t know his way around and feels like a lonely lost spaceman. Fortunately that feeling doesn’t last long, soon an alien called Jake comes to help, there’s a pirate called Lily in the playground ready to play, and Bernard, a dinosaur expert, to take Toby on a dinosaur hunt. By the time Mum comes to collect him Toby loves his school too! A wonderful book for children nervous about starting a new school. Instead of cloakrooms and playgrounds, Rebecca Elliott illustrates scenes from Toby’s imagination – pirate ships and prehistoric forests – properly catching the joy of school. Delightful. ~ Andrea Reece

My Stinky New School by Rebecca Elliott
Toby's sister and baby brother love their schools - they smell of paint and rainbows. Toby doesn't think he likes his new school at all - it smells of ogres and he's lonely. He looks and looks for friends but he can't find any anywhere. He finds an alien, a mermaid, a dinosaur expert and a pirate, but no friends! When his mum comes to pick him up he tells her the sad news - but if he didn't make any friends then who is in the playground waving at him..?
Rebecca Elliott's charming Toby books help children deal with new and unfamiliar circumstances.
In Mr Super Poopy Pants, Toby got used to the idea of having a new baby brother; in Missing Jack he had to come to terms with the death of his pet cat. Now Rebecca is showing that going to school isn't quite as scary as you might think, using her unique sense of humour and style to create a warm and comforting picture book, which is quirky and funny at the same time.
