Heard it in the Playground

Written by Allan Ahlberg

Heard it in the Playground Synopsis

For schools everywhere - a poetry treat for all fans of PLEASE MRS BUTLER! Meet Billy McBone and the Mad Professor's Daughter, be amazed by the Longest Kiss Contest, shed a tear for the Boy Without a Name and - if you're a stressed teacher - sing the Mrs Butler Blues. Allan Ahlberg's collection of poems and songs paint a funny and accurate portrait of primary school life, with highly appealing and atmospheric illustrations by Fritz Wegner.
