These are so beautifully old fashioned to look at, but wonderfully relevant in content. Dd (4) loves them, particularly Alfie Gets in First.Read moreLess

These stories always give me a warm feeling and its hard to put into words why. Hughes manages to capture and describe the life of 4ish yr old Alfie perfectly so that reader and listener have complete empathy with him. The stories are simple (Alfie going to his 1st party/getting new wellies, etc), but will keep your listeners enthralled. Beautifully illustrated too.Read moreLess

"I'd recommend everything by Shirley Hughes. The illustrations are wonderful, the writing very simple, stories of everyday events." "My daughter loves the illustrations in this book and studies them for ages." "There's something wonderfully innocent and old fashioned about both the pictures and the text. A real treasury of both stories and poems which we read over and over again. Also useful at bedtime as there are the short poems and longer stories."Read moreLess
