It's the first day of school and Oscar is trying hard to be brave. Oscar's mum feels sure he will make lots of friends, but Oscar isn't so sure, particularly when Ernest seems so mean and scary.

But is he really?

From talented picture book creators, award-winning Emma Allen and talented new illustrator Hannah Sommerville, comes a book about the joy of making friends.

About the Author

Emma Allen’s debut book The Terrible Suitcase (Scholastic) won the 2013 CBCA Book of the Year: Early Childhood and was shortlisted for the WA Premier’s Literary Awards. Emma worked as a paediatric speech-language therapist for many years and is now studying for a PhD in Creative Writing. Emma lives in Canberra.

Hannah Sommerville is an emerging children’s book illustrator whose first book was Chasing Shadows by Corinne Fenton (Ford Street Publishing, 2013). Hannah lives in Milton, NSW.


A great picture book


This is a wonderful book to share with young children at home or in a school setting. Children will easily relate to the story and be able to share their fears and experiences at preschool and in the playground. The illustrations support the text so well and make this a beautiful picture book that children want to read again and again. I love it!
