The third children’s book featuring Polly and her puffin Neil, from bestselling adult novelist Jenny Colgan. With gorgeous two-colour illustrations throughout, Polly is perfect for reading aloud.

Polly and her puffin friend, Neil, have wonderful adventures by the sea.

But now the time has come for Polly to go to the place she calls ‘Big School’. It might be fun, it might be exciting, and it’s definitely a little bit scary.

Making new friends can be harder than it sounds . . . join Polly on her quest and find out if there might be a new feathered friend for Neil too!

Ideal for bedtime stories and early readers. From the author of The Little Beach Street Bakery.

Any indpendently minded child who doesn't like to follow the crowd, will love this book. Every page is illustrated with gorgeous, black, grey and orange pictures, which capture daily life in a coastal school perfectly. A treat for the 6 or 7-year old child who is crossing the bridge to independent reading, or as a quick read aloud in the KS1 classroom when discussing friendship issues.
