Another useful book for the classroom as it allows children to see that poems are about real people, written by real people about real things as well as the wild and wonderful. More importantly it's a jolly good read. Margery Mo is at the 'Why?' stage and driving the family mad with her questions but when they try to retaliate it doesn't work out quite as they imagine! Instead of a bedtime story her Mum and Dad write a poem about the questioning habit, and my children were a most appreciative audience - very impressed with her parents and totally oblivious to the fact that they were fiction too!
