9780141314587: Puffin Modern Classics Please Mrs Butler

This witty collection of poems about school is full of typical classroom events that will be recognized and enjoyed by everyone: the candid revelations in a pupil's newsbook, the problem of copycats, bickering, making up, swaps, picking teams and forming gangs. Fritz Wegner's line drawings beautifully complement the hilarious and poignant verses. "Please Mrs Butler" was voted the most important twentieth-century children's poetry book in a Books for Keeps poll.
