5.0 out of 5 stars Easy to read, beautful illustrations 11 Dec 2008
Format:Hardcover
With a selection of wonderful tales in the life of Alfie with his little sister Annie Rose, this book makes ideal bedtime reading. Ideally for the two years and up age group, the stories about everyday life in the world of a little boy are something all children can relate to. The pictures are large, so plenty to look at whilst reading with some lovely touches only adults will appreciate.

Very traditional, maybe a little old fashioned, but the safe world of family and normality that we all want for our children. My daughter can't get enough and I love reading them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful 26 April 2009
By Anna
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is the first Alfie book we've bought. We've had it for about 4 hours and we've read it through four or five times (at least, and Alfie Gets In First must have been read seven or eight times). My two year loves it, so much so that, although these are lovely stories, beautifully illustrated, I will need to buy more Alfie stories, so that I don't end up memorising the entire book.

Shirley Hughes is simply brilliant. This collection of stories about Alfie and Annie Rose is much loveable bedtime book. My kids love it. The stories are simple and basic stories about every day life and good family values. The author is one of my favourite children's authors. I personally vouch for Shirley Hughes's books anytime! This is definitely the kind of book you want your little one growing up with.
