About this deal

If you believe that your personal data has been misused, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a supervisory authority. He has published over 100 children's books and, with his late wife Janet, created such award-winning picture books as EACH PEACH PEAR PLUM and THE JOLLY CHRISTMAS POSTMAN - both winners of the Greenaway Medal. ISBN: 9780140328240 Author: Ahlberg, Allan Publisher: Puffin Publication Date: 1st August 1991 Imprint: Puffin Cover: Paperback Dewey: 821. Janet Ahlberg (21 October 1944 – 13 November 1994), née Janet Hall, and Allan Ahlberg (born 5 June 1938) were a British married couple who created many children's books, including picture books that regularly appear at the top of "most popular" lists for public libraries. This illustrated collection of amusing poems and songs celebrating primary school life won the Signal Poetry Award in 1990.

Janet sadly died in 1994, but Allan has gone on to work with other illustrators and is still producing lots of new books. Innovative, funny and moving, his work encompasses storybooks, picture books, easy readers, joke books and novels as well as poems.

Whether it is poems about something living in Harrison’s desk, the school boy’s love of kicking a ball, the dread of parents’ evening or the timeless questions “why must we go to school?

I raised the question with Better World Books and although they could not supply a hardcover version they were extremely generous in making up for the descepency. To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Revisiting this classic collection of short poems, long poems and songs as a trainee teacher reveals just how perfectly Ahlberg captures the unique environment of the primary school. We’re obliged by EU General Data Protection Regulation to let you know about this right; we don’t actually intend to misuse your data.

It was because Janet wanted to illustrate a book that Allan wrote his first book, the Brick Street boys.
