Editorial Reviews

Review

"I think this book is fantastic because I can read it myself and I love the pictures and the way it looks. The story is really, really good and fantastic because it's strange and weird." Child's review on the Guardian's children's book site. "A sophisticated combination of faux-naive pencil drawing, collage and varied layouts makes David Mackintosh's Marshall Armstrong is New to Our School striking." Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times Culture "...a beautifully illustrated first book from the writer and illustrator David Mackintosh." Daisy Bridgewater, Telegraph Magazine "Even very young readers will ... enjoy how Mackintosh's beautifully underplayed text and genial drawings manage to be empathic to both the leery narrator and the serenely outre object of his misapprehension. Without a whiff of pedantry, Mackintosh skillfully dismantles the narrator's defenses and bonds him to Marshall Armstrong, all the while proving that fun doesn't always fit within the confines of one's comfort zone." Publishers Weekly

Format: Hardcover
So I probably identified a lot with Marshall Armstrong and his father - I was a bit of a square peg when growing up and recently put a treehouse and zipline in our backyard for our kids. I also work in an environment where Design is a key part of the business.

Artwork is unique but probably more "design" than artistic, the writing is top notch. I thoroughly enjoyed the description of Marshall's ears, hair, etc.

We have three kids 8 and younger and read to them ALL the time. Our weekly trips to the library result in two very large bags of children's books, so I consider myself a pretty good judge of quality. Since you often end up reading some books to them over and over, quality really counts!

Other recent children's books I rate five stars are "Dexter Beasley and the Big Blue Beastie," "Click, Clack, Moo" and "Princess and the Pizza"

Marshall Armstrong is the new kid at school. Everything about him is different and new. He sticks out like a sore thumb, until his birthday rolls around. Marshall invites everyone to his birthday party. Some kids don't want to go. But, Marshall's party is a blast. Everyone has fun. Children ages 4-7 will see what it's like to have a new kid at school, while learning that different can be good.

I love this book. After having to be the new kid in school I was drawn to Marshall Armstrong although my parents weren't quite as ecclectic or creative, I was always "new in school". The narrative from the other boys perspective is what I found to be so interesting. Marshall Armstrong's feelings of being the new kid in school are never purveyed. He says nothing, yet you find compassion for him and at the end for the other boy. The message of acceptance is passed on. As to the illustrations, I have gone back several and each time find details I may not have recognized before. I can't say enough about this book

We just loved Marshall Armstrong, with his spotty nose, and funny lunches. We read all the labels on his food and we even found ice creams that look like cookies but taste like real ice-cream, space food just like Marshall! When we build a new house we are going to get a fire pole so we can shimmy down it when we're in a hurry to use the bathroom. No more walking up stairs for us. And when a new person comes to school we can't wait to sit next to them - maybe they'll be as much fun as Marshall Armstrong was!
