The Lovereading comment:
Age 7+ Brilliantly observed as always, family, teachers, pupils and the dreaded school inspector all leap to life in this wonderfully warm and witty, brand new, poetry collection from Gervase Phinn. New kids, disobedient deputy heads, school reports and fireworks, daydreamers and embarrassing mums all make an appearance. And if you read on, you might even just discover the whereabouts of Colin's confiscated conkers; just don't tell the teacher!
