Who Wrote?

1 "I know a little cupboard,With a teeny tiny key,And there's a jar of Lollipops for me, me, me.It has a little shelf, my dear,As dark as dark can be,And there's a dish of Banbury Cakesfor me, me, me."

2 "Then I saw a sight which put gladness into my heart - sweets in the shape of a man, a pig, a boat, a horse and many another. I was in many minds, not knowing which I would choose. When I had taken my choice she gave me a book and put me sitting on the bench again. 'Be a good boy, now,'

said she, 'and come to school every day.''I will.' 'You will surely,' said she, leaving me and going up again to the table. So there I sat contentedly looking at the book while not forgetting to fill my mouth."

3 "I had a terrible education. I attended a school for emotionally disturbed teachers."(Sent in by Paula Halliday)
