Penguin Putnam
From the creator of Peanut Butter & Cupcake and Happy Birthday, Cupcake! comes THE back-to-school must-have picture book of the year!

First days of school are tough, and making new friends is even tougher. Milk's dad gave her a sparkly new backpack and told her that she was the creme de la creme, but most of the other kids don't seem to agree. In fact, some of her new classmates think Milk is just little a bit spoiled. . . .

In this latest hilarious picture book from Terry Border, our food friends go to school and learn that it's not just Milk that's the creme de la creme. Some other food can be just as sweet.

Praise for Terry Border's picture books:

Milk Goes to School

"A quirky read-aloud with offbeat humor and fun images that young readers will appreciate. A good choice to address the challenges of making new friends at school."--School Library Journal

Happy Birthday, Cupcake!

"As in his earlier picture book, Border's characters are skillfully crafted food items with basic wire limbs arranged in simple landscapes....Preschoolers will be delighted with the visual mayhem."--Kirkus Reviews
Peanut Butter & Cupcake:

"Border’s witty food comedy will lure children who are hungry for clever visual entertainment."--Publishers Weekly

"[Z]any creative photographs. [A] read-aloud hit."--School Library Journal

From the author of Cupcake's Birthday (which I love) Border fills this book with dumb food puns while trying, and not totally failing, to give a lesson about school. "Will her classmates think Milk is Spoiled??"

The story itself is about fitting in at a new school, but you have to wade through a lot of silly puns and food jokes to find the message. I'd recommend this one more for the corny humor and clever food photography than the lesson about friendship!
