9780006623793: Alfie Gives a Hand (Picture Lions)

Join Alfie, his little sister, Annie Rose, and their friend Bernard, in this classic Alfie tale.
"One day Alfie came home from Nursery School with a card in an envelope. His best friend, Bernard, had given it to him."
When Alfie is invited to Bernard's birthday party he is a bit nervous about going on his own so he takes his special blanket with him. But Alfie has so much fun that he finds he doesn't need his blanket after all - and he even makes a new friend too.

Product Description:

Alfie is not quite sure how the birthday party he's been invited to is going to turn out; he really wants to go, but at the same time he wishes his mother could be there. In the end, Alfie has a marvellous time, but not quite in the way he anticipated. This delightful story is re-issued in a larger gift format with a beautifully redesigned cover as part of the celebrations to mark a new Alfie story and Shirley Hughes' seventieth birthday.

Review:

"There's just something so reassuring about Hughes' colourful drawings of the day-to-day activities that you know inside out . . . Words and pictures merge seamlessly . . . Hughes is a magical storyteller with an instinctive understanding of the mind of the pre-schooler . . . She makes the ordinary extraordinary" ( Guardian)

"Shirley Hughes is a national treasure" (Philip Pullman)

"Hughes' perceptive eye captures the expressions and feelings of small children perfectly" ( Scotsman)
