You might be wondering where the title came from?? The head master of the school I went to in Liverpool was called Mr Pobjoy (a great man), and Alice is one of my favourite girl's names.

It was one of those rooms that was filled with children's voices making silly noises as they wobbled about, and sometimes with the sound of adults pretending they were children too!
