The Mighty Slide



'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.%%%'This is the storyOf 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.
