My Stinky New School is a brand new book from Rebecca Elliott, which is the perfect Summer read for those starting school or nursery, or transitioning through the early years of primary school like Bud.

My Stinky New School Book Review

Rebecca Elliott is renowned for her books which address tricky issues for children, inspired by her children and especially by the loss of her daughter Clemmie last year. Her previous books have been widely acclaimed with Michael Rosen describing Just Because as ‘a truly lovely book… fun, rhythmic and thoughtful’ Jacqueline Wilson saying it is ‘delightful, warm and beautifully illustrated’.

My Stinky New School tells the story of Toby, who starts a brand new school and doesn't like it. At all! He doesn't like how his school smells and he can't see any new friends there. He finds an alien, a mermaid, a dinosaur expert and a pirate, but no friends! But who are those people waving him goodbye when his Mummy picks him up?

My Stinky New School Book Review

Bud really loved this story, it's pitched perfectly at children aged around three upwards and is a warm, engaging story which really helps to reassure children that they will make friends at their new school. It would work just as well for a younger child moving to a new school as it would for them starting school for the first time. The book is beautifully illustrated and, from a parent's point of view, fun to read.
