A fun and quirky collection of school poems every kid will relate to. Celebrated performance poet Sara Holbrook's poems range from begging for a few more minutes' sleep to a "slam-dancing ride" on the big yellow bus, from the teacher who picks up signals with "antennae in her hair" to a full-on zombie invasion.
