Monster and Boy are back for another adventure And this time the best friends are headed somewhere no monster has ventured before: school

Ever since Monster (who sleeps under the bed) and Boy (who sleeps in the bed) met and became best friends, they've been spending their days playing together. But some days, Boy leaves and Monster is alone. Wanting to learn more about where his friend goes, Monster makes a plan to go with Boy to . . . school There, Monster meets Boy's teacher and classmates, learns about cubbies and the sharing circle, and even helps solve a mystery when a pet hedgehog goes missing.

Told with a warm, cozy voice, Hannah Barnaby's story is brought to life with adorable two-color illustrations by Anoosha Syed. Filled with adventure and humor, Monster and Boy: Monster's First Day of School is a perfect chapter book for sharing with kids just aging out of picture books and for newly independent readers.
