Guess What Happened At School TodayAny child who has grown up with and enjoyed Jez Alborough’s lively picture books is bound to enjoy this collection of verse. Each poem relates the events at school as seen through the eyes of different pupils. The rhymes are often hilarious, they set up a pace and rhythm which makes us want to discover more of the outrageous events of the day - as well as subtly establishing individual voices.
