Even little monsters get worried about their first day at school. It's a big step to take. Fred and Ted are two little monsters who aren't at all sure they want to go ...but once they do, they soon find out it's fun. After a day filled with mud splashing and slime painting, some howling and growling practice and a good stomp and stamp, not to mention big helpings of worms for lunch - they can't wait for Tuesday! Ruth Symes's humorous story will appeal to children everywhere who are just about to start school. They'll enjoy the antics of Fred and Ted, who could be any four or five-year-olds, but will also relate to the message about being brave enough to try new things. Rosie Reeve has three young children, and her charming monster characters perfectly capture the spirit of the story.
