It's Little Monster's first day at The Horace Arachnid Academy and he's not so sure he wants to be there. His teacher, Mr. Drool, understands perfectly and assures Little Monster that, "Though I'm big and I drool, I'm a fairly nice guy."  He seats Little Monster next to another student, Fang. Fang looks rather intimidating too but Mr. Drool promises him that although Fang's teeth are quite big, he doesn't think he'll bite. As the day progresses, with Mr. Drool's guidance Little Monster's confidence grows as he learns to deal with all of the scary new things that school brings. And in the end, he's found a new best friend in Fang and can't wait to return the next day.

From art class to recess to a forgotten lunch, Helen Ketteman's rhyming verse will gently guide children through some of the things that worry them as the first day of school approaches. Along with the charming watercolors of Bonnie Leick, Little Monster will reassure children and maybe even have them looking forward to their first day of school!

Happy Reading!
