A brand new Alfie book celebrating the outside world from master storyteller Shirley Hughes
"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 "Wonderfully well-written and filled with Shirley's distinctive drawings, it's another title to add to your expanding Alfie collection." -- Alison Potter Junior Magazine
