Kindergarten-Grade 1—Posey is about to start first grade, and she can't help but feel a little intimidated. Her mom won't be walking her to her classroom, neighborhood boys have terrified her with stories of a first-grade monster, and—worst of all—she won't be allowed to wear her pink tutu to school. Posey doesn't think she can be brave without it and is more nervous than ever. How will she survive her first day? This is a sweet book, and children will relate to the child's fears about her new experience and leaving her security tutu behind. There's also a confidence-building ending in which the new first graders are encouraged to be true to themselves. The illustrations are spare and in black and white, but they do complement the story. Children will find this offering a good start for trying chapter books as it is has such an easy reading level. This first title in the series is likely to find an appreciative audience.—Elizabeth Swistock, Jefferson Madison Regional Library, Charlottesville, VA

Author of the Sophie Hartley series of middle-grade chapter books, Greene now offers a series for early chapter-book readers. Nervous about starting first grade in the fall, Posey spends the summer wearing the pink tutu that makes her feel special and worrying that this year she must walk into school and down the first-grade hall alone. It doesn’t help that her neighbors, Nick and Tyler, love to tease her about the monster and snakes in that hallway. Midway through the book, Posey jabs Nick’s arm with a stick to find out whether the monster really turned his blood to ink. The chapter ends there, leaving readers to wonder whether she drew blood, got into trouble, and/or apologized. The next chapter opens with her sympathetic grandfather drawing out her concerns as he drives her to the store for ice cream. Apart from those lingering questions, the story and illustrations offer a satisfying portrayal of Posey and her world. The black-and-white illustrations are appealing, and the sparkly pink tutu on the book jacket will draw just the right audience. Grades K-2. --Carolyn Phelan --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.See all Editorial Reviews
