One of a series of books featuring friends Max and Millie. While Millie is excited about going to school, Max is shy and is upset about leaving his mummy. The children quickly get involved in many activities (painting, singling, dancing, playing in the sandpit and with the other toys) and make a new friend. They like the little toilets that go ‘fl-u-u-u-s-s-s-h’! As the day goes on, Max becomes more confident and by the time his Mummy returns, he is reluctant to go home.
