Please Mrs Butler
Happy 30th birthday, Please Mrs Butler!
This witty collection of school poems by Allan Ahlberg, re-jacketed for its 30th anniversary and for a whole new generation of school children to fall in love with, is full of typical classroom events that will be recognized and enjoyed by everyone. From never-ending projects, reading tests, quarreling, making-up, excuses and 'Please, Sir, it isn't fair.'
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.

This is a great book to introduce kid friendly poetry that is easy to understand and it is also relatable. It talks about the troubles of a person who wants to "tattle tale" on the butler to fix his problems. This is also great creative way to reinforce that we need to solve our own situations.
