What to expect

A hilarious collection of poems from the creator of the best-selling DUCK IN THE TRUCK series.

We learnt about acorns and planted a tree
Nigel fell over and bashed up his knee
Rosie Rawlings cried at play -
Her pet rabbit’s run away.

In English, Miss Chadwick was in a bad mood.
At lunchtime we all made a mess with our food.
And you’ll never guess what happened to Claire,
She leaned back too far and fell off her chair!

Jez Alborough’s hilarious rhymes describe a typical day at school, as seen through the eyes of various pupils.
