Written by Simon Philip

Illustrated by Ged Adamson

I Have to Start at School Today Synopsis

A riotously funny, but ultimately reassuring look at one child's far-fetched imaginings about starting school, from the writer of award-winning You Must Bring a Hat and Be More Bernard.

Luckily, Grandma is on hand to reassure that there's no need for fright because what if it just all goes...right? Simon Philip's spirited rhyme is perfectly paired with bright, bold, fabulously expressive illustrations from Ged Adamson, creator of Shark Dog.
