Synopsis

The irrepressibly inquisitive Marco is off to school in this illustrated eBook with audio from New Yorker cartoonist Roz Chast.

Marco is the busiest bird, and it’s time he goes to school! There is so much to do at school, from lessons to lunch to building a block tower to the moon! But Marco soon learns that his plans for the day may be just a bit too ambitious. Luckily, school has one extra surprise for him—and that’s a new friend!

In this eBook with audio, acclaimed cartoonist Roz Chast proves that it’s not getting to the moon that counts—it’s the friends we make along the way.

Ditto his teacher and the kids at school, especially Henry, who becomes his friend and helps him with big blocks, since Marco's "a little bit on the short side."
