Allan Ahlberg's five poetry books, written over a period of twenty-five years - "Please Mrs Butler", "Heard it in the Playground", "Friendly Matches", "The Mighty Slide" and "The Mysteries of Zigomar" - have delighted generations of children and received many accolades and prizes. Allan has sifted through them and chosen a collection to delight and entrance a new generation of readers and their parents. Here are all the trials and tribulations of childhood, embracing school, quarrels, friendships, football and storytelling from a much-loved author and poet. Charlotte Voake's black-and-white illustrations enchance the charm of this handsome and definitive collection.
