The worrywart hero of Stuart's Cape faces his first day of classes in a new town in Stuart Goes to School by Sara Pennypacker, illus. by Martin Matje. What if Stuart forgets everything he learned in second grade? What if he can't find the bathroom? Luckily, Stuart's magic cape, made out of 100 ties stapled together, will help him out again in this wryly funny mix of the real and the magical, enhanced by Matje's quirky line art.
