I Am Absolutely Too Small For School by Lauren Child (Orchard, £5.99)

Loveable Lola is in her inimitable fiesty mood as she points out the multitude of reasons why she can't possibly go to school. Charlie, in his own masterfully persuasive manner, manages to convince her that actually school is going to be a great adventure. A lively and contemporary take on starting school, filled with Child's signature style and joie de vivre. The only downside might be Lola's distaste at the thought of having to wear a "schoolifom” (her school actually doesn't have one), which might put a downer on a child who does have to wear regulation kit. Nonetheless, a delightful winner!

I don't know about the others but I'll get the Starting School by Janet and Allan Ahlberg for my lad. The writersperhour review too mentioned about the book and that's really a positive sign. It's hopefully going to be really good.
