The Lovereading4Kids comment
In her warm and readily recognisable illustrations, award winning illustrator Shirley Hughes always captures the small but important details of how young children feel.
When Mum is ill one day, Dad says Lily has to go to Melanie’s house, but Lily doesn’t want to go! Thankfully, through the course of the day Lily finds lots of new things that she likes including a baby and a dog and when Dad comes to fetch her, she doesn’t want to go home!
