About this deal

This illustrated collection of amusing poems and songs celebrating primary school life won the Signal Poetry Award in 1990. Janet Ahlberg won two Kate Greenaway Medals for illustrating their books and the 1978 winner Each Peach Pear Plum was named one of the top ten winning works for the 50th anniversary of the Medal (1955–2005).

Whether it is poems about something living in Harrison’s desk, the school boy’s love of kicking a ball, the dread of parents’ evening or the timeless questions “why must we go to school? Meet daydreamer Billy McBone, be amazed by the Longest Kiss Contest, shed a tear for the Boy Without a Name and - if youre a stressed teacher - sing the Mrs Butler Blues! 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. ISBN: 9780140328240 Author: Ahlberg, Allan Publisher: Puffin Publication Date: 1st August 1991 Imprint: Puffin Cover: Paperback Dewey: 821.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. Innovative, funny and moving, his work encompasses storybooks, picture books, easy readers, joke books and novels as well as poems. 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. It was because Janet wanted to illustrate a book that Allan wrote his first book, the Brick Street boys. A marvellous collection of poems, some funny, some thought-provoking, all written with the inimitable Ahlberg wit and wisdom.
