Click-Clack Waddle Dot Dewey Dew from Planet Eight Hundred Seventy-Two Point Nine does not want to go to school—not on his planet, and definitely not on Planet Earth at Mrs. Brightsun's School for Little Learners. Everything on Earth is different. His clothes don't fit right, his classmates don't look like him, and even Earth noises sound weird. In this first day of school story with a twist, nervous Dewey Dew learns that new experiences—like going to school on another planet—might be okay after all.
“A fine read-aloud choice, this picture book explores what it feels like to be the new kid, whatever planet you call home." --Booklist
"Mack's pencil, watercolor, and digital illustrations are a delight. Though they've likely never met an ET, readers won't have any trouble decoding what the unfamiliar words mean or how Dewey Dew feels about his single eye, 3-fingered hands, and lack of hair amid the other students, who are nicely multiracial.ET or not, the first day of school will be ootay."--Kirkus Reviews
