My daughter (aged 3)loves all the Alfie stories, and is particularly taken with all "drip" and "splash" sound effects in this one. Any Alfie fan will enjoy this.

As with all books written by Shirley Hughes, this is an excellent book which my 3 year old son really enjoys having read to him time and time and time again and so does dad.

We have all the Alfie, Annie Rose and Olly & Me books and can't recommend them highly enough. Shirley Hughes's writing is funny, endearing with recognisable stories. Her wonderful illustrations are little pieces of art, each and everyone. Nobody can depict the essence of young children the way they are, like Shirley Hughes.

Shirley Hughes's Nursery collection is excellent for under 3 age group.

I would also like to recommend the Katie books (Sunflowers, Mona Lisa & the Impressionists)by James Mayhew. Because of these books my 3 year old son loves going to art galleries to see the actual pictures.

I bought this book to add to my Shirley Hughes collection and this is one of the best stories she's ever written and illustated. I like the way things are linked in this book (i.e. the evening in winter, the story of Noah's ark, the burst pipe and Annie Rose crying). Not only does this book have a basic plot (Maureen and her parents dealing with the burst pipe) but it also has a sub-plot (Alfie trying to work out why Annie Rose is crying). This is a must-have book for any Shirley Hughes fan. 5/5.

My daughters love this book as did I when I was younger. Our friends little girl loved it when they came to stay so we brought them a copy. My eldest daughter now can read it to her little sister and they love the beautiful pictures.

Format: Paperback
A lovely story for children and for the adults reading it to the children. Illustrations contribute well to the story without being too obvious. Suitable for a wide age range from quite young to at least 8 or 9 when they can read it themselves.

This is a lovely book to read to young children. The size enables the reader to display Shirley Hughes' wonderful illustrations and the story can be used to generate simple discussion.
