Hurry up Alfie

Anyone who has lived with young children knows all too well the fun they love to have...especially when they should be doing something else!

Meet Alfie and his ever patient, if slightly exasperated (who could blame him?), father as they get ready for a trip to the park. And don't forget Steve McQueen, Alfie's ever present cat!

Anna Walker's beautiful illustrations tell a gentle story about morning routines, focusing on the task at hand (or not) and unending parental patience. Her use of various media in her illustrations give an added depth and interest to her books.

Perfect discussion starter with young children - about getting ready. Brought to you by the popular author of the 'I love Ollie' series and 'Peggy'.
