US Kirkus Review » For everyone who'd like to return to the comfortable family and neighborhood made so entirely real in the four previous books about Alfie and his little sister, a generous collection of incidents and vignettes. The two children cheerfully make a mess of their breakfast while Dad tries to read the paper; Alfie shares a photo album with Grandma and hears how her brother Will once got into extraordinary mischief; Annie Rose, who is just learning to talk, takes Alfie's obstreperous friend Bernard as her special friend and learns his name as her fifth word (after "Mommy," "Daddy," "no," and "more"). In a quiet saga that says a lot about how things change, Mr. MacNally's hat becomes a toy, a gift to the milkman on a wet day, and finally a bed for a stray puppy. And when Alfie is page for his mother's friend, Annie Rose appoints herself impromptu bridesmaid. Like their neatly plotted predecessors, these nine pieces explore childhood's joys and satisfactions with uncommon sensitivity and warmth, both in their attractively ingenuous language and in the consummate draughtsmanship and humor of their illustrations. Lovely as a first chapter book to share with preschoolers, or for Alfie's old friends to read to themselves. (Kirkus Reviews)

Author Biography - Shirley Hughes
Shirley was born in West Kirby, near Liverpool, and studied fashion and dress design at Liverpool Art School, before continuing her studies at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art in Oxford. She then embarked on a career as a freelance illustrator in London, where she still lives today. She illustrated other writers' work, including Noel Streatfeild, Alison Uttley, Ian Seraillier, Margaret Mahy and notably Dorothy Edwards's My Naughty Little Sister series. Shirley began to write and draw her own picture books when her children were young. Her first book - Lucy and Tom's Day - was published in 1960, and she followed it with, among others, Dogger and the Alfie series. Shirley Hughes has won the Other Award, the Eleanor Farjeon Award, and the Kate Greenaway Medal for Illustration twice, for Dogger in 1977 and for Ella's Big Chance in 2003. In 2007 Dogger was voted the public's favourite Greenaway winner of all time. Shirley received an OBE in 1999 for services to Children's Literature, and is the first recipient of Booktrust's Lifetime Achievement Award.
