The Lovereading4Kids comment

Age 7+. Art lessons, drama, assembly, wet playtime and school dinners are just some of the many aspects of SCHOOL that are captured in these wonderfully wide ranging anthologies of contemporary poems. Both are a feast of entertainment that’s fun to dip into. Both titles, Excuses, Excuses and Schools Out will bring a real smile to the face of both parent and child.

Synopsis

School's Out by John Foster

A fun and lively collection. Here you'll find poems about everything to do with school - reports, trips, bullies, and Zonky Zizzibug (who?). School - it's the happiest time of your life. (Yeah, right!) A great new edition of this favourite book.
