About this deal

Unfortunately rather than being hardcover as described at time of sale, it was a paperback but it is in good condition . If you decide not to receive newsletters at all, you’ll have to unsubscribe from all the mailing lists. We always describe the faults of our books meticulously but they usually present better than they sound.

The majority of pages are undamaged with some creasing or tearing, and pencil underlining of text, but this is minimal. I remember my mum (a primary school teacher) carrying a very battered copy of this in her bag to and from school. This illustrated collection of amusing poems and songs celebrating primary school life won the Signal Poetry Award in 1990. 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.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.

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). Packed with rhythmic poetry and playful songs, this timeless collection has delighted children for generations. Now that my mum has spotted it on my bookshelf she has dug out her copy, with refreshed enthusiasm, to use in her all boys Year 6 class.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. Janet Ahlberg (21 October 1944 – 13 November 1994), née Janet Hall, and Allan Ahlberg (born 5 June 1938) were a British married couple who created many children's books, including picture books that regularly appear at the top of "most popular" lists for public libraries.
