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 from an exciting talent.

Marshall Armstrong is new to our school.

A quirky and witty 'first day at school' story from a brilliant new talent.
