Alfie Outdoors from Shirley Hughes

July 30, 2015

A brand new Alfie book celebrating the outside world from master storyteller Shirley Hughes!

Gardens are for playing in, for getting muddy and making dens! Alfie learns that gardens are also for growing things, but seeds can take a long time – especially when you’re waiting to share with a special friend.

There are more surprises in store for Alfie in this new adventure about getting out and about from Shirley Hughes, creator of Dogger.

My Review:RJ loves this books. With his 11 months now, he normally picks u everything as takes it to chew, the Alfie book, in his hardback cover, he knows is the book that mummy likes to read. 
The story of Alfie in this book consists in telling the basic daily day in the garden outdoor and helping his mum and dad. He even makes a Bonfire with dad! 
You have Anita as a female adventurer and then you have Alfie and his adventures in his tiny little world as a little boy. Definitely a must have in our child library.

Us in our story time

About the Author

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.

You have Anita as a female adventurer, and then you have Alfie, an adventurer as my little boy! Must have all the Alfies adventures in my child library.” (ArtsMum Blog)
Alfie Outdoors is another classic and should be an immediate addition to every child’s library” (Hannah Beckerman The Huffington Post)

Wonderful – a brand new Alfie book! Alfie is such an engaging character and he has captivated millions of children – and their parents – since his first appearance. Alfie loves to be out in the garden and now his Dad suggests they grow vegetables – to Alfie’s surprise, they don’t come straight from packs in the supermarket! Digging turns out to be great fun, with some unexpected surprises, but plants are quite slow to grow… As ever, a quite charming story with the added benefit of showing children the excitement of growing vegetables – and a very special goat to eat the produce! Alfie’s Year in the Garden is an enchanting two page spread which gives lots to discuss about the changing seasons and the fun of being outdoors” (Parents in Touch)

A really gorgeous celebration of what children love about the outside world: getting muddy, making dens, playing and growing.” (The Bookseller)
