The Alfie books by Shirley Hughes are among the nation’s favourite picture books.

The sweet and gentle stories, about every day life for preschooler Alfie and his little sister Annie-Rose, have been delighting families for over thirty years. 

Shirley Hughes’ books have won multiple awards, including the Kate Greenaway Medal twice, and she was also awarded the OBE for services to children’s literature. As well as the Alfie and Annie Rose books, her beloved classics include Dogger which was voted the UK's favourite Kate Greenaway Medal-winning book of all time in 2007.

Little ones love the reassuring stories about simple everyday events like splashing in puddles, going to birthday parties and making friends, and Alfie’s adventures are brought to life by Shirley Hughes’ charming illustrations.
