A Big Day for Migs!

Publisher: Andersen Press

Review

It's Migs' first day at school, but when everyone introduces themselves, Migs can barely squeak. If only he wasn't so shy. Then he spots the dressing up box: donning a hat, cloak and boots, he's Migs the Mighty. But his swooping around the classroom creates havoc, destroying Rokko's boat painting: 'Go Away!' shouts Rokko.

Migs hides in a box - then has a brainwave. The class transforms the box into a boat and persuades Rokko to join them on a glorious classroom circumnavigation. All is forgiven, the day is rescued, and Migs got a friend for tomorrow!

With its rhyming text, adorable characters, expressive illustrations and humorous details, this exuberant starting school story beautifully portrays the intense dramas of infant classroom emotions.
