"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 --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

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"
