Overview

Going-to-school jitters will be quickly relieved by this funny, funky interactive book that reminds readers of the many ways they are super, too.

Super Sue is back — and she's going to school! Pull a tab and see how she goes from hiding behind Mom to waving goodbye to joining the other kids on the mat. Super Sue has a little trouble sticking some stars with glue, but is a whiz at climbing the biggest slide and opening her mouth up wide to sing. Best of all, by the end of the day, Super Sue has made a super new friend!

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Super Sue shyly heads to school in the paper-over-board Super Sue at Super School by Cressida Cowell, illus. by Russell Ayto. But after making a new friend, the heroine learns that school can be fun. Pull tabs picture Sue jumping on a trampoline and singing at the top of her lungs. A pull-out "Super Nursery School Report Card" leaves room for readers' own accomplishments.

Children's Literature
The "Super School" of this pull-tab enhanced book is a nursery school where Super Sue makes a friend named Ben. Both Sue and Ben have large round heads with dots for eyes, a caret for a nose, a shallow U for a mouth and squares and rectangles for their bodies, arms and legs. The backgrounds are brightly colored on the seven spreads and minimally filled with detail. The actions created by the pull-tabs are appropriate to the story and make it more entertaining. One very small action occurs when a tiny hand waves goodbye and another is produced that has both Sue and Ben running home from school, with Sue passing Ben on their way to the end of the page. The last motion in the book occurs when a wheel is turned and reveals Ben standing next to Sue below the words, "If you can go to school like Sue, you can make a friend there, too!" 2005, Candlewick Press, Ages 3 to 5.
