Richard Blunden spent a lot of his schooldays studying life through the classroom windows. His thoughts and daydreams, as well as a love of nature and the great outdoors, are all expressed in his poetry, as are his quirky sense of humour and observational skills.
A child's visit to Granny, the opinion of a pumpkin on Hallowe'en, the lifespan of a sausage and the terror of ill-prepared-for school exams are all explored and commented upon. The spider's visit to the vet is a joy to read. Delightful illustrations accompany the verse, making this a feast of laughter.
