Shirley Hughes' Alfie books are thirty years old!
I only became familiar with them when my sister-in-law read some Alfie stories to my youngest son earlier this year.
We were sent the beautiful collection 'All About Alfie' to review. We have read it to the boys as their bedtime story and they have also asked for it at other times. There are two stories as well as poems and gorgeous illustrations. They stories are wonderful and real. My boys (4 and 3) could relate to Alfie visiting an elderly relative and going on holiday.
We all really loved this book. It would make a lovely Christmas present for a pre-schooler.
All About Alfie is available from Random House for £9.89.
