The Only Pupil in the School

Publisher: Balestier Press

It is the first day of school where there is just one pupil, but lots of eager teachers. The little girl is kept so busy that there is no time for her to play. When the teachers start arguing amongst themselves, she escapes through a window.

She searches for minibeasts, makes soup and plays in the park with a dog. She discovers a hidden city, seeks out the library and creates a book about her lovely day... will more pupils end up coming to school?

Delightful pastel illustrations complement this gentle story.
