Posey is really nervous about starting first grade. Instead of getting walked to her classroom, her mom has to drop her off at the Kiss-and-Go Lane. Then she’ll have to walk into school and face the Monster of the Blue Hall all by herself. Worst of all, she has to do it without the one thing that always makes her feel brave and special: the tutu that turns her into the Pink Princess. But when Posey inspires her new teacher to throw a first-day parade in which all the kids are invited to wear whatever makes them feel the most comfortable, first grade starts to look a lot more promising.

Posey will charm readers just graduating from easy-to-reads (and from kindergarten) in this lively new series.

"Six-year-old Posey, in a sparkly pink tutu on the cover, will catch the attention of young emerging readers. Like Miss Lee's invitation, this new chapter book series will be warmly received by youngsters looking for something comfortable and familiar to begin with." — The Horn Book


"This is a sweet book, and children will relate to the child’s fears about her new experience and leaving her security tutu behind. There’s also a confidence-building ending in which the new first graders are encouraged to be true to themselves." — School Library Journal


"Greene’s simple sentences are distinguished by punchy dialogue and sentiments that do justice to a range of emotions, from frustration and nervousness to unadulterated glee. They should go a long way to easing the worries of readers embarking on a new stage in their school life." — Publisher's Weekly
