Enrico starts school ISBN: 9781862335158
Middleton, Charlotte
Published by Gullane, 2004
A very quirky and original story about a young cat starting school. Enrico is good at lots of things, particularly making a 'pilchard in lobster-jelly sandwich', but when he is five and starting school, he doesn't know how to make friends. He tries hard, possibly a little too hard, and finally decides that the only way forward is to be himself - whereupon 'a rather shy cat' named Lucas becomes his friend. The illustrations are brilliant. Some full page and some in strips, they are idiosyncratic and full of fun. Little notes in many of the pictures, pointing to details, will add to children's enjoyment. An unusual and nicely thought through story.
Age: 4+
