The much-loved duo Alfie and Annie Rose come together once again in this bumper collection of original tales.
Shirley Hughes was born and grew up in West Kirby, near Liverpool. She studied at Liverpool Art School and at the Ruskin School of Art in Oxford, before embarking on a career as a freelance illustrator. At first she worked as an interpretive illustrator, but she began to write and design her own picture books when her children were very young. Her first book, Lucy and Tom's Day, was published in 1960. Now living in London's Notting Hill, Shirley Hughes has illustrated over two hundred children's books and is renowned as a champion of children's literature. She has been the recipient of the Other Award, the Kate Greenaway Medal and the prestigious Eleanor Farjeon Award.
"Shirley Hughes is a national treasure" -- Philip Pullman "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 * "I am reminded of something John Diamond wrote: 'This, here, now, is what happiness is. Enjoy it'. To me, the work of Shirley Hughes says something very similar" -- Wendy Cope * Daily Telegraph *
