A Kid in My Class - Poems By
|Author:||Rachel Rooney; Chris Riddell (Illustrator)|
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!
