Alfie and Dad, Hardback (May 2017)» View all books by Shirley Hughes
Alfie's dad is always there for Alfie and Annie Rose. He's there to reassure Alfie during a restless night; he's there to find Alfie's favourite toy Flumbo when he gets left on the bus; and most of all he loves spending time with his children and they love spending time with him!
US Kirkus Review » Four longish stories and as many pleasant poems about happy, wholesome experiences for Alfie and his little sister: setting up shop on a cardboard box; camping out with Dad in a real tent near Grandma's (a huge pig provides an amusing midnight disturbance, just scary enough); adopting a rock ("Bonting") that Alfie invests with so much personality that losing "him" at the beach is truly sad (he's found, in the end). As always, Hughes's understanding of childhood's concerns is deep, mellow, and beautifully extended in her exquisite art. Deplorably, the publisher here reverts to "Mom" and other needless Americanizations, undermining the splendidly evoked British setting. (Kirkus Reviews)
