Alfie's Feet

These books by Shirley Hughes are enjoyed by children everywhere. Shirley Hughes passed away this week and a tribute is fitting. As we tweeted in a tribute, the best books last a lifetime and beyond !


Alfie and his sister Annie Rose go through everyday activities that all children relate to: a trip to the supermarket, the park, playground or school. In this particular book, Alfie gets new shoes and wears them the wrong way round. That's it ! No preaching this or that, just a great story.

Alfie's Feet

These books by Shirley Hughes are enjoyed by children everywhere. Shirley Hughes passed away this week and a tribute is fitting. As we tweeted in a tribute, the best books last a lifetime and beyond !


Alfie and his sister Annie Rose go through the most basic and mundane daily activities that all children relate to: a trip to the supermarket, the park, playground or school with parents and the rest of their family members joining at different intervals. In this particular book, Alfie gets new shoes and wears them the wrong way round. All children can relate and laugh about this whilst learning how to read and the basics of storytelling. That's it ! No preaching this or that, just a great story.
