Horn Book Review

With the close of summer comes school, and Tortoise is uneasy as he anticipates his first day. He thinks of all kinds of embarrassing problems. What if he falls down? Or if his classmates (a menagerie of smiling animals) are mean? On the other hand, what if school is fun? A clean palette and soft black lines reflect the spare, reassuring text's warmth.
