Julia Eccleshare's 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.

Here's what one of our members thinks of her bag
A big thank you for the two Lovereading bags I ordered, which have arrived safely. I love mine and will use it with pride. The bags are lovely quality, sturdy and support a good cause in the Rewrap initiative; I think they make the perfect accessory for any book lover. The second bag was a gift for my sister and she says she will take it to her next book group meeting to help spread the Lovereading word. Once again, many thanks. Emily Wright

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.
