Author Choice

I could pretty much be happy with any Janet and Allan Ahlberg book here, and in fact I’ve just spent a very pleasant hour sat on the floor reading a selection out loud to myself (it’s one of the perks of my job!) I could have chosen any Jolly Postman, and Burglar Bill came close, but in the end I chose Cops and Robbers because I couldn’t resist Grandma Swag . . . who could? ‘Hallo, hallo,’ said Officer Pugh, ‘Now then, what’s going on here?’ ‘Not much, young man,’ Said the criminal gran, ‘We’re just having a robbery, dear.’ I was quite glad she got away!
