Abby's First Day of School! is a 2007 Sesame Street "Jr. Cine-Manga" book published by TOKYOPOP.
The book uses photos taken from Sesame Street episodes, with sound effects and word balloons superimposed over the pictures. An introduction on the first page encourages parents to use comic-style stories to move their children toward appreciating the printed word.
Elmo is jealous that Abby gets to go to school with Baby Bear, but Abby promises that she'll tell him everything that happens. At school, Abby meets her new teacher, Mrs. Goose, and her classmates -- Jack and Jill, Peter Piper, Mary and her little lamb, Hansel and Gretel, and Little Red Riding Hood. Abby gets so excited that she "poofs" back to the Fix-It Shop, to tell Elmo and Luis all about it.
