Author(s): Steven Herrick
A new uproarious collection of poems from Steven Herrick spun around classmates Billy, Anna, Sarah, Alex, Emily and Michael. Follow 5B's adventures in the playground, in the class room and at home as they attempt to learn about religion, play cricket, eat giant sandwiches and acquire a new Principal. Once again Steven Herrick captures the everyday happenings in a child's life. He twists and turns the simple things into a bundle of funny, touching and poignant poems that are impossible to stop reading and to stop laughing at.
