YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGet off, Get off, Get off! Well what would you say if your brother kept whacking you with a spoon, or the spider made it all the way up the toilet bowl or your mum made you wear that horrible shirt? Find out in this fantastically funny collection of poems all about growing up from the brilliant Michael Rosen, Children's Laureate 2007-2009.

'I think poetry for children needs to be saved from the cold dissection of right and wrong answers and put back into rooms and halls full of wonder, compassion, haunting, laughter, music and rhythm. We need to hear its many cultures, many voices, many sounds. This is about wide and diverse participation. Diverse verse for all!' -- Michael Rosen, Children's Laureate 2007--2009 'Michael Rosen is a poet with a superb ear for the rhythms of language' -- Guardian 'One of our most popular writers -- the champion for every bored, overdrilled, tested-to-tears pupil in the land' -- The Times
