Author Info
Jan Ormerod
Australian author and illustrator Jan Ormerod graduated from the Western Australian Institute of Technology and was a college-level art teacher for several years. After the birth of her first child, she became interested in illustrating books for children. Ormerod's first picture book, SUNSHINE, appeared in 1981 and was named the Australian Picture Book of the Year, and also won a Kate Greenaway Medal Commendation. In addition to illustrating her own works, Jan Ormerod also illustrates the works of other authors such as Sarah Hayes and David Lloyd.
Praise
"Ormerod's beautiful way with bright kid colors and clear lines echoes and reinforces the story, and the apple-cheeked hero is a sweet little melding of the facial features of his mommy and daddy. A great send-off."
"This story insightfully relates a youngster's trepidation about the unknown, while its happy ending sends a comforting message to anxious schoolgoers."
From the Publisher

Editors Note |"I closed my eyes and held on tight to Hank. That's when I decided that going to the very first day of school was NOT a good idea."|When a child gets ready for the first day of school, it feels very exciting. But doing something new for the first time can also feel somewhat scary.With great affection and humor, Robie H. Harris and Jan Ormerod, creators of the award-winning picture book Goodbye Mousie, tell the captivating story of a child who decides that skipping the very first day of school is a very good idea.But with help from his favorite stuffed animal, Hank, and his parents, he discovers that going to the very first day of school can be fun and exciting -- and once you have done something new, it's not quite so new and scary anymore.
Editors Note 2 A little boy decides to skip his very first day of school, because on the first day one doesn't know anything, but on the second, one knows everything.
