Alfie and Grandma Press Reviews

This book is a fabulous addition to and a must have to any child's book collection. -- Becky * 3 Princesses and 1 Dude! * This very special collection of three stories is one for grandmothers and grandchildren to keep as their very special book to share. The stories are a wonderful celebration of a very special relationship; Alfie and Grandma are very special friends and share lots of adventures. Whether it's saving the day and finding a lost pet, or exploring indoors and out, Alfie loves being with his grandma. The situations are familiar to children and they can really relate to the experiences and the way they are told. The drawings are absolutely timeless and capture the spirit of the stories to perfection. Perfection in a picture book. * Parents in Touch *
