It is the first day of school, and Marvin is scared. Everyone seems to know where to go – except Marvin. Everyone seems to have a place in class – except Marvin. And everyone seems to know how to read – except Marvin. Marvin's struggle with reading will ring true to reluctant and eager readers alike, and all will share his triumph in Katherine Paterson's reassuring story, the third about this popular character.

Ms. Paterson lives with her husband in Vermont. They have four grown children.From AudioFile:
Marvin's a new first-grader who is having difficulty learning to read. Christina Moore reads slowly, plodding along almost painfully. It's not surprising that this does nothing to engage children in the story. There are cute sound effects of kids' voices and sprightly music. Marvin's teacher and father do teach him how to read, and he gains self-confidence by the end of the story. A.G.H. © AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
