Synopsis

The Mighty Slide The Mighty Slide; Captain Jim; The Girl Who Doubled; A Pair of Sinners; The Scariest Yet Stories in Verse by Allan Ahlberg

'This is the story Of Alison Hubble, Who went to bed single, And woke up double.' Here, in verse, are the hilariously original stories of a mighty slide, a man who fought crocodiles, a girl who doubled, a couple of baby skinners and a thing that lived under a school. A wonderful collection from Allan Ahlberg, author of 'Please Mrs Butler, Woof!' and 'Happy Families', illustrated throughout with delightful drawings by Charlotte Voake.

About the Author

Allan Ahlberg

As a child

Allan always dreamed of being a writer, but tried his hand at many other jobs before he achieved his ambition. He was a postman, grave-digger, plumber's mate and teacher - it was teaching that gave him such sharp insights into the minds of children, and enabled him to write his perfectly observed poetry about primary school life

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. He has won numerous awards for his books including, the Kurt Maschler Award in 1986, The Children's Book Award in 1987, the Blue Peter Book Award 2001, and The Children's Book Award: Books for Young Children award 2002.

I love Lovereading as it provides an honest opinion and showcases a range of fiction. Suited to both parents & kids alike, it’s a must-use.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
