    Allan Ahlberg (5 June 1938) and Janet Ahlberg (21 October 1944 – 13 November 1994) , née Janet Hall, were a British married couple who created many children's books, including picture books that regularly appear at the top of most popular lists for public libraries.
    They worked together for 20 years until Janet died of cancer in 1994.
    Allan wrote the books and Janet illustrated them.
    Allan Ahlberg has also written dozens of books with other illustrators.

    The Supply Teacher is my favourite Allan Ahlberg poem. We are reading some of his poems at school, and I like his poems very much. The poem I didn't like so much is The Puzzle.
