From the author-illustrator of Hannah and Sugar comes a back-to-school tale about facing your fears, now in paperback with bonus tear-out lunchbox notes
As Mae's first day of school approaches, she decides she IS. NOT. GOING.
School is scary! What if the other kids don't like her? Or what if she's the only one who doesn't know how to write? Or what if she misses her mom? Mae's anxiety only builds as she walks to school.
But then she meets Rosie and Ms. Pearl. Will making new friends show her that they can conquer their fears together?
