The New Kid



Making new friends can be scary for everyone, whether you’ve just come to live on the street, or you’re one of the local kids who’ve known each other forever. Ellie is the new kid and the other kids have been told that they have to ask her out to play.

At first the local kids are wary and that makes them act a little mean. But with her wonderful imagination and incredible grey coat, Ellie soon shows everyone how amazing she can be.
