Specs for Rex by Yasmeen Ismail
Published by Bloomsbury, 2014

Rex has had to get new glasses. He hates them and does NOT want to wear them to school. Worried that his friends will laugh at him, he tries several ways to hide them throughout the day. Not an easy task if your glasses are big, round and red. But Rex is in luck. When he tries to hide them in the waste bin he discovers teacher’s missing whistle and the story takes a whole new turn.

Rex ends up getting a gold star and even better, a brand new friend. Even better still, he can see properly.

This is a stimulating picture book story about the good things that can come from being just a little different.

Beautiful watercolours on every page accompanied with just the right amount of words make it a fun and attractive publication from an exciting new picture book creator.
