    Book details


This is the story

Of Alison Hubble,

Who went to bed single,

And woke up double.’

Here, in verse, are the hilariously original stories of a mighty slide, a man who fought crocodiles, a girl who doubled, a couple of baby skinners and a thing that lived under a school. A wonderful collection from Allan Ahlberg, author of ‘Please Mrs Butler, Woof!’ and ‘Happy Families’, illustrated throughout with delightful drawings by Charlotte Voake.

Allan Ahlberg, a former teacher, postman, plumber's mate and grave digger, is in the super-league of children's writers. 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. He has also written prize-winning poetry and fiction for older readers.

    This contains 2 of my favourite poems for children. Alison Hubble and The Boiler Room Door. My last copy of the book fell into disrepair and had to replace it.Alison Hubble is great for maths lessons when teaching doubling!

    These are stories in verse rather than poems. There are just 5 stories but they are good fun to read to a group or for reading alone.
