Synopsis

I'm Going to School by Chris Dickason

I'm Going To School is the perfect companion for children starting school for the first time. Each page will take a child through a different aspect of the school day, letting them know just what to expect with humorous artwork and reassuring, fun activities. The activities are simple enough for children to complete on their own, but I'm Going To School also provides an opportunity for parents to share in the school experience of their child and create something to be treasured and looked back on in years to come.

About the Author

Chris grew up somewhere between the canals of south-west France, the Swiss mountains and England's Essex estuary. The youngest of four children (the little brother role he still embraces in adulthood), Chris spent the majority of his education drawing on his friends' schoolbooks and was brought up on a diet of Tom & Jerry, Swiss chocolates, cheap fizzy pop and French sunshine. Chris' irreverent sense of humour was born from years as both a mild mannered doodler and angry burger flipper. Taking inspiration as much from Henri Matisse as he does The Muppets as well as odd bits of packaging collected from foreign supermarkets Chris' work has been described as charming and visually striking with a sharp graphic style. His illustrations are populated with rambunctious characters that are a cleverly crafted mix of an uncomplicated line style, wonky perspectives and conspicuous colour choices.

It is fantastic, you get to read lots of books and you always find something new and amazing in them.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
