Product Description

From the Author

"Poems in 'School's Out' should be fun Saying something, but fun, There are too many brainboxes Taking the fun out of poetry, Too many do gooders telling you what's good. By now you should overstand I, Here are poems dat are bad for you The rejects My favourites." [from the introduction]

Benjamin has truly done it again! this book is great! its funny, serious and darn right silly all in one. there is no way you could buy this book and think it was a waste of money. Young or old will enjoy it.Its one of those books that if you lend it out you may not ever get it back!

Format: Paperback
Benjamin Zephaniah has written for primary school aged children but do note this book of poems contains the F word and references to sex. The book is more aptly described on his own website as "34 poems for very grown-up teenagers!...Some of them are a bit rude so some so some parents will appreciate them too."
