Our Kid



When Our Kid decides to dawdle on his way to school, he is about to get in felmumpingly big trouble!

"Go straightly to school, Our Kid," said Dad. But unless a fish-driven submarine, dinopirates and an elephant ride are the fastest way to school, Our Kid is not doing too well.

This tour-de-force from the legendary Tony Ross takes you on a journey to school like no other, and shows that sometimes the oddballs (especially of the goat variety) win the day!

Praise for Our Kid

Ross' cartoon-style illustrations with their characteristic shaky ink line and painterly watercolors evoke humor that reinforces the absurdity of the tale. A tall tale with lots of fun kidding around.

Kirkus

With a sympathetic protagonist and lovably quirky ink-and-watercolor illustrations, this picture book delivers plenty of read-aloud fun.

Booklist

Fantastic story... Ross’s off-beat use of language is both inspired and playful

Red Reading Hub

In Our Kid Tony Ross has produced yet another marvellously unique miracle
