This beautifully written and illustrated book is asked for again and again by my three year old twins. They adore all of the stories and it's definitely sparked their imaginations, whether it's setting up camp with a pretend tent in the living room or calling their pretend shop 'Lewis Burrows and Company'like Alfie's in the book. I'd highly recommend this book to parents wanting to read a gentle bedtime story to their children -you'll enjoy it as much as they will!
Gorgeous stories and illustrations.Perfect for encouraging imaginative play for those lucky enough to have outside space.Good use of new language for children to learn.Cannot fault any of the Alfie story books.CRolynKillingley.
The Alfie books by Shirley Hughes were a firm favourite of my daughter's when she was younger - in fact she still loves them now (she's 10). The illustrations are fabulous and this particular one is full of stories and poems that are real little gems. What better present could I give to my young 4 year old nephew? A joy to receive, a beautiful addition to any little person's bookshelf, and he will return to it again and again.
