Synopsis

The Shopping Expedition by Allan Ahlberg

Come shopping with me and Mum and little Harry and Wilf the Wonderdog. But this is no ordinary shopping trip; the car breaks down, the rain keeps coming and the road becomes a jungle, then a river. It's an expedition where anything might happen; in fact, it probably will!

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.
