    1. The illustrations are beautiful, but as a story I think a lot was lost on me I get the whole anxiety about attending a party by yourself for the first time, but I did not understand the illustrations of the houses that they passed.

Joe and his mother walk down a street trying to find a party As they travel they peer in through the windows and see bizarre scenes which scare Joe More terrifying than all is the party Joe is going to attend Nothing his mother says can persuade him otherwise Visually rich the illustrations and story offer great opportunities to explore inference, building an image of the ultimate party A class which built up predictions together might be surprised Others in the class might demonstrate their und [...]

    5. I thought that this book had a lot of intertextuality that would be fantastic for children to discover when they are reading It s also a great opportunity for children to discuss anxieties that they may have.

    6. Like all of Browne s books there s a lot that can be unpicked explored in the illustrations I personally am not a huge fan of his style, but the story is one that will resonate with young children and their grown ups, as well as working well in schools doing homes as a topic.

    7. Lots of pictures in this books, which give away clues very good for reading comprehension Very simple and enjoyable story with big font Maybe a guided reading book for lower KS1.

    8. A young boy worries about all sorts of things that could go wrong as he goes to his first party Artful, subtle, and astute.

    9.

    15. One of this book s really strange illustrations disturbed me It was creepy I didn t like this book because of that I m not sure how you re supposed to deal with a child with anxiety problems, but this mother just brushes him off That was a fine technique, because the kid has no problems after he arrives at the party Not recommended.

    16. This book showcased anxieties, which is super important Lots of times kids worry, and it can get passed off and dismissed This reminds people, and kids, that some anxiety is normal Some will pass, and some may need some assistance in order to pass, but all is valid.

    17. What if features a little boy and his first birthday party with friends not mom Great detailed pictures and dialogue Definitely enjoyed the read.

    18. Una historia con la que me hubiera identificado de ni a perfectamente pero con la que lo hago a n de grande, con el ni o y con la madre.

    19. The story of Joe who is apprehensive about going to a party He can t find the house with him Mum so they look in the windows of every house on the street while Joe tells his mum about his fears.
