SynopsisI Want A Friend by Tony Ross
The first day at school for Tony Ross' best loved character - the Little Princess! The Little Princess is tired of playing with her younger brother and is thrilled to be starting school the next day. However, when her first attempts to make friends with other children fail, she is left all alone. Fortunately, she soon finds other children with no friends, and they decide to play together, sit together, eat together! This fantastic new title focuses on the difficult experience of starting school and making friends. Written with insightful understanding of a child's perspective, it also manages to maintain the anarchic humour that characterises this brilliant series.
