The best book on teachers and children and writing that I've ever read. No-one has said better so much of what so badly needs saying. I want to see this book become a bestseller, I want to see it in every staffroom, I want to see it read by every student teacher. This is a wonderful achievement.

Philip Pullman

One of the most inspiring books about teaching you’ll ever read . . . superbly well written . . . brilliantly funny . . . read this book, then lots of poetry and the world will be a better place.

Bryan Appleyard - Sunday Times

Inspiring, moving and funny . . . Each story stands up the belief in the power of education to change lives . . . A book that will appeal not just to other teachers and parents, but to anyone who cares about education. Her classroom anecdotes are inspiring, mortifying, energising and moving. I’d give her an A*.
