About the Author

Shirley was born in West Kirby, near Liverpool, and studied fashion and dress design at Liverpool Art School, before continuing her studies at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art in Oxford. She then embarked on a career as a freelance illustrator in London, where she still lives today. She illustrated other writers' work, including Noel Streatfeild, Alison Uttley, Ian Seraillier, Margaret Mahy and notably Dorothy Edwards's My Naughty Little Sister series.

Shirley began to write and draw her own picture books when her children were young. 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Shirley Hughes does it again! 19 Mar 2013
Format:Paperback
Don't be put off that the book is only £1, it's a great little story with the familiar Shirley Hughes charm and homeliness. Both my two (4 and 2 yrs) loved it and as usual took some ideas away from it to include in their own imaginary roleplaying! (Don't forget if your child is school age they should have got a World Book token to claim this book for free in local participating book shop!)

We are big Alfie fans and this book is great. it is smaller and shorter than most of the Alfie stories but that works well if you just want a quick story at bedtime. Great price.

We have a lot of the Alfie books, they haven't dated at all and both my little girl and I love reading them. The illustrations are as interesting as the stories.
