Back to school for the Truth Pixie

« Back

Exciting news for Truth Pixie fans… she is back in The Truth Pixie Goes To School after Canongate acquired the sequel to the Sunday Times bestselling children’s book by Matt Haig.

Publishing on 1st August 2019, The Truth Pixie Goes to School is an uplifting story for five-year-olds and over, about beating back-to-school nerves and helping children to learn to be themselves in their school uniform. Chris Mould, will provide the illustrations which will feature throughout the book.

The Truth Pixie originally appeared as a character in Matt Haig’s children’s festive trilogy. Matt Haig said:
“The Truth Pixie is always my favourite character to write, and she offers a fun way to explore issues that children face in their everyday lives. This book isn’t just about school, it’s about friendship and the pressure to fit in and be popular. There will definitely be more Truth Pixie books to come. I’m not ready to say goodbye!”

Publishing Director Francis Bickmore said:
“For anyone who’s felt the jangle of nerves at their (or their children’s) first day in school uniform, The Truth Pixie Goes to School is for you. Matt Haig has a gift for speaking simply and honestly about emotions, even difficult ones, and if we want to equip our children to deal with the challenges of 21st century childhoods we need to give them the emotional vocabulary to express themselves and, like the Truth Pixie, to be unafraid to tell the truth. We couldn’t be happier that Matt Haig and Chris Mould are reuniting for more adventures.”

The Truth Pixie Goes To School, by Matt Haig, illustrated by Chris Mould, published by Canongate is out on 1st August 2019.
