    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."
