Morgie and Moffie can't wait to start school! They buy backpacks and pencil boxes, and off they go. Moffie, who knows the answers to all of the teacher's questions, gets a lot of gold stars. And Morgie, who likes sharing his dinosaur book, makes two new friends. But by the end of the week Morgie and Moffie help each other to understand that it's important to both get gold stars and make new friends. And they agree that they love school!
From the Publisher:
Bossy Moffie and her quiet twin brother Morgie both enjoy starting school, especially getting gold stars and making new friends, in the first book of a series featuring the Barker twins. Reprint.
Two Welsh terrier twins--a boy named Morgan and a girl named Moffat--face their first days at school. Although Moffat is better at knowing the alphabet and numbers, Morgan also finds a way to shine in the classroom. The characters of Morgan and Moffat are based on the author's own Welsh terriers. Illustrated with acrylic paintings.
Author Bio
Tomie De Paola
In addition to creating his own stories, Tomie dePaola is also well known for his retellings of folktales such as STREGA NONA: AN OLD TALE and FIN M'COUL: THE GIANT OF KNOCKMANY HILL, as well as his illustrations for the work of other authors such as Jean Fritz and Tony Johnston. dePaola has a B.F.A from Pratt Institute, a M.F.A. for the California College of Arts and Crafts, and a doctoral equivalency from Lone Mountain College. He entered a Benedictine monastery in Vermont for a short time after his graduation from college; many of his books reflect his interest in religion and spirituality. DePaola's works are noted for their conscious effort to avoid sexual stereotyping. In 2001 DePaola became the executive producer and star of the television program JIM HENSON'S TELLING STORIES WITH TOMIE DEPAOLA, a program intended to encourage children to use their imaginations and develop their own storytelling skills.


Kirkus Reviews
"[D]elivering modeled behavior in light, positive ways, and fleshing out his puppy protagonists with artfully presented differences and similarities, he has crafted a tale that all brand-new grade-schoolers will effortlessly absorb and enjoy." 05/15/2001
