    Author Information
    Shirley was born in West Kirby, near Liverpool, and studied fashion and dress design at Liverpool Art School, before continuing her studies at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art in Oxford. She then embarked on a career as a freelance illustrator in London, where she still lives today. She illustrated other writers' work, including Noel Streatfeild, Alison Uttley, Ian Seraillier, Margaret Mahy and notably Dorothy Edwards's My Naughty Little Sister series. Shirley began to write and draw her own picture books when her children were young. Her first book - Lucy and Tom's Day - was published in 1960, and she followed it with, among others, Dogger and the Alfie series. Shirley Hughes has won the Other Award, the Eleanor Farjeon Award, and the Kate Greenaway Medal for Illustration twice, for Dogger in 1977 and for Ella's Big Chance in 2003. In 2007 Dogger was voted the public's favourite Greenaway winner of all time. Shirley received an OBE in 1999 for services to Children's Literature.

    Review text
    Author/illustrator Shirley Hughes has produced another charming book about two of her most popular characters, Alfie and his sister Annie Rose. In this collection of poems and stories, Alfie demonstrates that, no matter how bad the weather, there is always something enjoyable to do. He and Annie Rose go exploring in Grandma's house, pretending they are on an expedition to the North Pole. He makes stars out of pastry, and then goes out to look at the real stars twinkling in the night sky. And on a hot sunny day he and Mum explore a stream, and he finds out all about the Garden of Eden. Hughes's delightful illustrations are gloriously evocative - you can almost smell the summer grass when Alfie goes exploring with his Mum, and feel the chill of the water when he goes splashing in the winter puddles with Annie Rose and Grandma. An enchanting collection, which children of 4 and upwards will enjoy. (Kirkus UK)
