9780007361427: Marshall Armstrong Is New To Our School

Quirky, witty and brilliant, Marshall Armstrong is new to school and he definitely stands out from the crowd; but will he find it easy to make friends? A highly original take on a perennially popular theme from an exciting talent.

Marshall Armstrong is new to our school.
He looks different to me.

His laces are straight, not criss-crossed like mine,
And his eyes are always looking at the blackboard.

Marshall Armstrong doesn’t fit into our school.
Not one bit…

…but it doesn’t take long for Marshall to prove that you don’t have to follow the crowd to be the most popular kid in the playground.

A quirky and witty ‘first day at school’ story from a brilliant new talent.

Review:

“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-naïve 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 outré 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

About the Author:
