Age 9+. 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.
Teachers, classrooms, playgrounds, bullies, games, homework - you'll find poems about them all in here. You can read them anywhere you like, even in class, but don't get caught ... unless you've got a really good excuse! A welcome reissue of this best-loved collection of school poems.
