Quirky, witty, and brilliant, Marshall Armstrong is new to school and he definitely stands out from the crowd; but will he find it easy to make friends? A highly original take on a perennially popular theme, performed by Stephen Mangan. Marshall Armstrong is new to our school. He looks different to me. His laces are straight, not criss-crossed like mine, and his eyes are always looking at the blackboard. Marshall Armstrong doesn't fit into our school. Not one bit....

But it doesn't take long for Marshall to prove that you don't have to follow the crowd to be the most popular kid in the playground. A quirky and witty first-day-at-school story from a brilliant new talent.

    " This was a really charming book about a boy who is new to school and doesn't fit in. The narrator is a little boy who doesn't like him at first, but decides at the end that new kids are even more fun because they are different. The illustrations are bright, cartoonish and have lots of white space. Great for story time about new kids, school, or friends. "

    " What happens when a new boy moves in who is different from the narrator. Don't judge a book by its cover would be the moral for this book. "

    " A sweet tale about the new kid at school. "

    " Love Marshall Armstrong! What a guy and what a house. Think I will move right in! This is the perfect book for back to school when new students arrive. Everyone is different in truly delightful ways. Illustrations quirky and wonderful! "

    " Marshall Armstrong is new to school. And he is different. He looks different. His stuff is different. He eats different. He plays different. How can he fit in at school when he is so different? Soon other kids start to learn that sometimes different=cool. And this is a fun book all about celebrating different. Good times. "

    " I HEART MASHALL ARMSTRONG. Talk about a hilarous character, Marshall is the coolest geek I have read in a while. Can't wait to read aloud this book when we talk characters. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mary Ann | 1/3/2014

    " I really enjoyed the unexpected humor in this story. It would be great to read aloud during the first few weeks of school. Great twist at the end as the kids discover that Marshall Armstrong is not as dull as they all thought he was. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marcie | 1/2/2014

    " Unusual, perhaps because of the British style, but the graphic art is wonderful and the story of a new boy in school does meet an often needed read aloud. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elisabeth | 3/6/2013

    " I want a friend like Marshall Armstrong - he seems to be a kid out of a Wes Anderson movie and his birthday party looked amazing. It's a "message" book without being too didactic. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 10/26/2012

    " A fun read that supports the fact that being different is ok! Marshall loves science and math and there are lots of illustrative hints used to convey that! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Terri | 9/3/2012

    " What a sweet, charming story about being different! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda Atkinson | 8/22/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randi | 8/3/2012

    " I would definitely use this book in a middle school (or primary) classroom. It's a great picture book about being "different" and learning to accept others. The illustrations were creative and made me wish I was inside the book! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rebecca Dean | 6/1/2012
