The Independent’s Best Children’s Books for Summer

The Independent has chosen their picks for the best children’s books this summer, including Mouse’s First Night at Moonlight School, by Simon Puttock and Ali Pye. Nicholas Tucker writes: “Simon Puttock’s Mouse’s First Night at Moonlight School takes a reassuring look at feeling shy on the first day in the classroom. Initially mouse conceals herself behind the curtains but after winning a game of hide-and-seek she decides that school and her new animal friends are a good thing after all. Ali Pye’s dreamy illustrations are as appealing as the child-head teacher Miss Moon, who sports a witch’s hat but is otherwise a model of affectionate understanding.”
