This is Alfie. Alfie is one of my oldest friends. We grew up together, I had The Alfie Great Outdoors book which was a collection of stories and poems and also an alphabet book. I love Shirley Hughes' artwork and stories. They are fabuluous and she is very talented as demonstrated by the picture above. Today at work a lady bought an Alfie book on my recommendation and it made my day.
Head on to this website to meet Alfie for yourself!
