Emily Peppermint's Toy School

By Jeanne Willis
Illustrated by Vanessa Cabban

Welcome to Toy School! Take out your pencils, it's time to learn how to be the perfect toy.

It's the first day of term at Toy School and teacher Emily Peppermint has a new class all ready to learn how to be perfect toys. The first lesson is falling out of a pram, but the class members are about to get a bit more practice than they bargained for... It's a good job Emily Peppermint and her trusty classroom assistant Rose are there to save the day! Master picture book creators Jeanne Willis and Vanessa Cabban collaborate for the first time in this funny, big-hearted new story for young children.
