This witty collection of school poems by Allan Ahlberg, has a cover refresh for a whole new generation of school children to take to its heart. It is full of typical classroom events that will be recognized and enjoyed by everyone - from never-ending projects, reading tests, quarrels, making-up, excuses and 'Please, Sir, it isn't fair', Please Mrs Butler accurately portrays everyday primary school life.

Fritz Wegner's line drawings beautifully complement the hilarious and poignant verses.
