Can someone tell me the name of the Alfie book...

Ds2 is very keen on Alfie (Shirley Hughes) at the moment. We have read most of them at various points in the past, and there are some stories that Ds2 keeps asking for hopefully, but I can't remember the name of the book they were in. They included one where Alfie and his mum go paddling down a stream and see a snake (tied up with the Adam and Eve story) and another where it rains at his grandmother's house and they explore the attic.
Does this ring any bells with anyone?

An Evening at Alfie's - is this the raining one?

Evening at Alfie's is when the water pipe in the house bursts isn't it?

Yes, that's not the one I mean - in the one I mean, they are staying at the grandmother's and they are bored because it is raining and she lets them go over the house pretending to be explorers. Ring any bells?

Sorry cross-posted, I don't think the weather one is the one either, by the description on Amazon, but not 100% sure.

no you're right - just searched on "Alfie Weather" and that's the one. Thanks a lot.
