That rare jewel, a brilliant Dad book... fabulous stuff as ever from Shirley Hughes.  Read it, Daddy

In the run-up to Shirley Hughes's 90th birthday, this volume assembles stories in which Alfie's father helps his son: by sharing weekend activities, checking under the bed for flying loobies, retrieving a toy from lost property, finding a wandering cat's real home. Hughes makes the domestic blissful.  The Sunday Times
