If your teacher got locked in the loo, would you let them out?
Why are some dinner ladies so horrible?
And why do children love talking about wee and poo so much?
Reading this book could be hazardous to your child’s health. Raucous laughter and huge gasps for air have been widely reported whenever children come into contact with Conrad’s poems.
I’ve just delivered books to an estate near our house. For a cricket lover like me, it was quite a find! ... See MoreSee Less

*Final Panto Announcement*
If you’ve ordered tickets from me, please let me know when / where I can get them to you and I’ll let you know how you can pay. I’m happy to deliver the local ones or post out tickets to those further afield.
If you would still like tickets there are still some left for Monday / Tuesday / Thursday night. I think a few left for Friday / Saturday night too.
Come along - it’s a great way to get into the Christmas spirit, and a lot of fun. Plus, there’s ice cream! ... See MoreSee Less
The BFG visited Violet and Mabel’s school today. His planned visit was announced yesterday. Violet quickly worked out who it would be, but Mabel didn’t.

This may be the last chance I ever get to work with any of my girls in school, and if it turns out to be that way, then what a fine way to bow out.
They were SO excited and SO proud.
Just like their dad.
*Just before this photo was taken, the BFG said: “I is thinking you girls must be having a very nice dad.” They nodded furiously. I noticed the BFG smiled bigger than ever. And was that a hint of a tear in his eye...?!* ... See MoreSee Less
I was back at one of my favourite schools today - High Bank in Liversedge. It was them, remember, for whom we collected all those books earlier in the year. I just LOVE this school. I was reminded once again...
