"The Dirtbags were cool. Really cool. Amazingly COOL. The Dirtbags were so cool that if they met Cool say, in a park or on a street, Cool would stop, wide-eyed, open mouthed and whisper in a voice filled with awe and wonder, “YOU’RE SOOOO COOL,” and The Dirtbags would simply reply, “We know,” and keep walking. In a REALLY COOL WAY.

OK. THAT’S A LIE. The Dirtbags are not cool. Or are they......"

When Can I Go Back to School? by Anna Friend & Jake Biggin

When Can I Go Back to School? is a reassuring journey through a child’s common worries and fears during the worldwide pandemic and beyond. With his school shut and no one able to tell him when it will re-open, Billy is worried about what will happen next… Will things ever return to the way they were before? Anna Friend wrote this book at the start of the pandemic to calm her son and later asked her friend Jake Biggin to illustrate the story. They self-published it on Amazon thinking it might help some other families. They couldn’t believe the response! Now, with the help of Scholastic, this wonderful book is set to help thousands more families struggling with anxious children.
