Four very short stories about the everyday life of a little girl and her mum, by Ireland's first Children's Laureate.
Alexandra's adventures include changing her name, bedtime fears and a plaster disaster. In each story, Alexandra's mum helps her to learn about herself and the world by allowing her to make her own discoveries.
These warm stories by Ireland's first Children's Laureate were originally broadcast on Ireland's state broadcaster, RTE, and are great for reading aloud to children. Gentle and lovely illustrations create a warm and loving atmosphere between Alexandra and her mum.
