What's This Book About

Publisher Summary

This hilarious sequel to STUART’S CAPE is a witty look at an eight-year-old worrier’s first day of third grade. Now in paperback! The first day of school is here, and Stuart is worried. What if he gets stuck in the boys’ bathroom? What if he doesn’t have anything to show for show and tell? Worst of all, what if his mother really makes him wear those green plaid pants and a shirt with little cowboys on it? Doesn’t she know that on a make-friends-or-else kind of day like this what Stuart really needs to wear is his cape?
