9781419700361: Marshall Armstrong Is New to Our School

Marshall Armstrong is new to school and definitely stands out from the crowd, with his pale skin, perpetual hats, and special “space food” lunches that come in silver wrappers. He doesn’t play sports, and he doesn’t watch television. So when he invites everyone in class over for his birthday party, it’s sure to be a disaster. Or is it? Marshall Armstrong might have a trick or two up his long, “sun protective” sleeve.

David Mackintosh’s story, with its bold design and sharply humorous observations, is a highly original take on the popular theme of the difficulties of being the new kid and making friends.

Praise for Marshall Armstrong is New to Our School
« “Mackintosh’s beautifully underplayed text and genial drawings manage to be empathic to both the leery narrator and the serenely outré object of his misapprehension. Without a whiff of pedantry, Mackintosh (Rex) skillfully dismantles the narrator’s defenses and bonds him to Marshall Armstrong, all the while proving that fun doesn’t always fit within the confines of one’s comfort zone.” –Publishers Weekly, starred review

Review:

"I think this book is fantastic because I can read it myself and I love the pictures and the way it looks. The story is really, really good and fantastic because it's strange and weird." Child's review on the Guardian's children's book site. "A sophisticated combination of faux-naive pencil drawing, collage and varied layouts makes David Mackintosh's Marshall Armstrong is New to Our School striking." Nicolette Jones, Sunday Times Culture "...a beautifully illustrated first book from the writer and illustrator David Mackintosh." Daisy Bridgewater, Telegraph Magazine "Even very young readers will ... enjoy how Mackintosh's beautifully underplayed text and genial drawings manage to be empathic to both the leery narrator and the serenely outre object of his misapprehension. Without a whiff of pedantry, Mackintosh skillfully dismantles the narrator's defenses and bonds him to Marshall Armstrong, all the while proving that fun doesn't always fit within the confines of one's comfort zone."
