ISBN: 9780140328240 Author: Ahlberg, Allan Publisher: Puffin Publication Date: 1st August 1991 Imprint: Puffin Cover: Paperback Dewey: 821. This illustrated collection of amusing poems and songs celebrating primary school life won the Signal Poetry Award in 1990. Join our community to get personalised book suggestions, extracts straight to your inbox, 10% off RRPs, and to change children’s lives. Allan has collaborated with many illustrators, including Andre Amstutz, Gillian Tyler and Katharine McEwen, as well as his late wife, Janet Ahlberg (nee Hall) and his daughter Jessica Ahlberg.

Revisiting this classic collection of short poems, long poems and songs as a trainee teacher reveals just how perfectly Ahlberg captures the unique environment of the primary school. Classic characters like Burglar Bill and The Jolly Postman have become firm favourites with a generation of children who are now reading them to their own offspring. Read more about the condition Very Good: A book that has been read and does not look new, but is in excellent condition. We agree that ‘The Trial of Derek Drew’ will go down particularly well – I am looking forward to reading the children’s own poems for their trial transcripts!

Meet Billy McBone and the Mad Professor s Daughter, be amazed by the Longest Kiss Contest, shed a tear for the Boy Without a Name and if you re a stressed teacher sing the Mrs Butler Blues. I remember my mum (a primary school teacher) carrying a very battered copy of this in her bag to and from school. A marvellous collection of poems, some funny, some thought-provoking, all written with the inimitable Ahlberg wit and wisdom.

Janet died in 1994 and Ahlberg discontinued his writing career for a few years before picking it up again. I raised the question with Better World Books and although they could not supply a hardcover version they were extremely generous in making up for the descepency.If you decide not to receive newsletters at all, you’ll have to unsubscribe from all the mailing lists.
