More About the Author
Her first book - Lucy and Tom's Day - was published in 1960, and she followed it with, among others, Dogger and the Alfie series. Shirley Hughes has won the Other Award, the Eleanor Farjeon Award, and the Kate Greenaway Medal for Illustration twice, for Dogger in 1977 and for Ella's Big Chance in 2003. In 2007 Dogger was voted the public's favourite Greenaway winner of all time. Shirley received an OBE in 1999 for services to Children's Literature.
"Shirley Hughes is a national treasure" (Philip Pullman)
"There's just something so reassuring about Hughes' colourful drawings of the day-to-day activities that you know inside out . . . Words and pictures merge seamlessly . . . Hughes is a magical storyteller with an instinctive understanding of the mind of the pre-schooler . . . She makes the ordinary extraordinary" (Guardian)
"I am reminded of something John Diamond wrote: 'This, here, now, is what happiness is. Enjoy it'. To me, the work of Shirley Hughes says something very similar" (Wendy Cope Daily Telegraph)
A bumper collection of five stories and four short interludes starring Shirley Hughes' much-loved character, Alfie and his baby sister Annie Rose.See all Product Description

You ought to buy it too. well worth it.
The great thing about Alfie & Annie Rose is that they do everyday things that children do. My favourite story is about Alfie's new wellingtons which don't feel quite right when he puts them on for the first time to go to the park. Getting your boots on the wrong feet is just the everyday thing that happens to all children.
The books are beautifully illustrated in a slightly old fashioned manner which works well with the stories themselves.
These were a firm favourite in our house with the children & also with their Grandma who loved to read them these stories. In fact, I couldn't resist buying this book for my great nephew last year.
