Book Description

This is the story



Of Alison Hubble,



Who went to bed single,



And woke up double.’



Here, in verse, are the hilariously original stories of a mighty slide, a man who fought crocodiles, a girl who doubled, a couple of baby skinners and a thing that lived under a school. A wonderful collection from Allan Ahlberg, author of ‘Please Mrs Butler, Woof!’ and ‘Happy Families’, illustrated throughout with delightful drawings by Charlotte Voake.

5.0 out of 5 stars My 2 favourite poems 12 Sept. 2009
By Lynn
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This contains 2 of my favourite poems for children. Alison Hubble and The Boiler Room Door. My last copy of the book fell into disrepair and had to replace it.
Alison Hubble is great for maths lessons when teaching doubling!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun poems 4 May 2003
Format:Paperback
These are stories in verse rather than poems. There are just 5 stories but they are good fun to read to a group or for reading alone.
