The Truth Pixie Goes to School Reviews

  • Rec

    A very well written small children's book which even an adult can enjoy

  • Steph

    A gorgeously written story about the power of friendship, truth and lies. I love these books so much. This is going to be something I read and use in the classroom for years to come!

    Matt Haig my favourite writer! The truth pixie Christmas book, makes me cry every time I read it. I guess, you can imagine, how excited I got when I heard Matt had written another.

    The truth pixies goes to school, doesn’t disappoint in making me cry again. I know it’s a child book and I should know better. But the book show children what anxiety is and that “it’s okay to not be okay.” And those who suffer that you not alone in how your feeling.

    I have major bad anxiety. I get panic attack’s when

    The truth pixies goes to school, doesn’t disappoint in making me cry again. I know it’s a child book and I should know better. But the book show children what anxiety is and that “it’s okay to not be okay.” And those who suffer that you not alone in how your feeling.

    I have major bad anxiety. I get panic attack’s when I have to talk. So even now as an adult I still get bullied. This book is comforting.

    The Truth pixie goes to school with her friend from the last book. And they can’t make friends and people bully them. The book teaches us that it’s more important to be different and weird, than “normal” that you have to be who you are. Rather than lie. To fit in.

    Everyone needs to read this book!!

    I loved the first book so much that I just had to buy the sequel as soon as it came out! This is a bit more Christmassy than the first one (featuring Father Christmas) so it's probably best done as a late Autumn topic and considered in parallel with, not isolation from, the first book. It could be read alone, but the themes of 'be true to yourself' continue through this one and the characters are developed, including revisiting the Truth Pixie's home and discovering her true name, meaning that t

    I loved the first book so much that I just had to buy the sequel as soon as it came out! This is a bit more Christmassy than the first one (featuring Father Christmas) so it's probably best done as a late Autumn topic and considered in parallel with, not isolation from, the first book. It could be read alone, but the themes of 'be true to yourself' continue through this one and the characters are developed, including revisiting the Truth Pixie's home and discovering her true name, meaning that they work best as a pair of books. The original themes are built upon with the addition of a bullying plot (Aada is targeted primarily because she's friends with the Truth Pixie at school), Aada encountering new difficulties with her life, and a separation of Aada and the Truth Pixie. In the end, the core message prevails that you should, foremost, be you - and ignore the bullies.

    As with the previous book, it all rhymes and is essentially an incredibly long poem (possibly inspiring similarly-styled work from the children). The single exception is Aada's letter to Father Christmas - it would be interesting to see if the children can immediately identify that that section doesn't rhyme. It has an imitable art style, and although the plot is a little more sophisticated with bigger twists, it can be fairly easily transformed into a story board and re-constructed. It's suitable for Year 2 and up, with its only major downfall being that it's a little too long to suit Y1 and EYFS - it would take multiple sessions to reach the end.

    A few of my favourite quotes:

  • Aimée Thomas

    Another lovely book by Matt Haig. I really enjoyed the rhyme and the message in the story. I look forward to sharing this with my Year 1/2 class.

  • Alice Lawrence

    Such a lovely second Truth Pixie story full of meaningful messages about being true to yourself. Can’t wait to share with my class.

  • Gemma

    A wonderfully funny, cheeky book.

    laugh out loud but with meaningful life lessons hidden in its story . great for kids, especially those struggling to be their self or be excepted.

  • Layla

    I really enjoyed this book

    It was short but very funny

  • Sandra Armor

    I listened to Olivia Colman read the audio book of this sequel as she did on the first book. She’s fabulous and so is this delightful book!

  • Alison

    Clearly I am not the target audience for this book but I enjoyed it regardless. Matt Haig is a wonderful writer and this has so many positive and uplifting messages. I can't believe any child would dislike this.

    My one niggle and the reason for dropping a star is that it felt like the author was trying to wedge in messages that didn't fit with the story.
