This first collaboration between a prize-winning poet and the former UK Children’s Laureate takes a whole classful of children, plus the class hamster, and draws deft portraits of them all: the pushy, the shy, the dreamy, the daring, the ordinary, the one who wants to be best friends, the one who runs in his wheelchair, the cool kid, the tough kid - and lots more, including the teacher and the classroom assistant. This is a stimulating, perceptive and highly entertaining set of poems from one of the UK’s top children’s poets.

With a poem on each spread, there is lots of room for Chris Riddell’s wonderful illustrations, showing portraits of each child plus an illustration of every poem – and the hamster runs through the book, to be found on every page!

RACHEL ROONEY worked as a teacher of special needs children while also bringing up her three sons. She is much in demand for school workshops, and for performances of her work at festivals. Her first poetry collection, The Language of Cat, was published in 2011 and won the CLPE prize, followed by My Life as a Goldfish in 2014. She lives in Brighton.

CHRIS RIDDELL, Children's Laureate 2015-17, is internationally renowned both as artist and author. His awards include the Kate Greenaway Medal (2002, 2004), the Costa Children's Book Award (2013), and the Hay Festival Medal for Illustration (2015). He is currently president of the School Library Association. His bestselling books include the Goth Girl series, the Coraline series, The Sleeper and the Spindle with Neil Gaiman and A Great Big Cuddle with Michael Rosen. He lives in Brighton, UK.

"Charming, fun to read, and thought-provoking."
