"A lovely book with a great message about finding your own identity and choosing for yourself how you present to the world"
June 2023 Book of the Month
Albie is not a bear who likes to be told what to wear. While most teddy bears might be happy to leave outfit choices to their owners, Alfie has very definite ideas about his fashion style. But he also changes his mind – A LOT. From fairy king to cowboy, seasick pirate to city gent, Albie has an outfit for every occasion, but none feel quite right. Can he find one that perfectly represents him?
This is a lovely book with a great message about finding your own identity and choosing for yourself how you present to the world. Young readers will particularly enjoy Albie’s various different outfits and moods.
Jeanne Willis’ charming rhyme makes this a wonderful book to share and read aloud, whilst Brian Fitzgerald’s colourful illustrations perfectly capture Albie’s changeable personality.
