About the Author

Shirley was born in West Kirby, near Liverpool, and studied fashion and dress design at Liverpool Art School, before continuing her studies at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art in Oxford. She then embarked on a career as a freelance illustrator in London, where she still lives today. She illustrated other writers' work, including Noel Streatfeild, Alison Uttley, Ian Seraillier, Margaret Mahy and notably Dorothy Edwards's My Naughty Little Sister series. Shirley began to write and draw her own picture books when her children were young. Her first book - Lucy and Tom's Day - was published in 1960, and she followed it with, among others, Dogger and the Alfie series. Shirley Hughes has won the Other Award, the Eleanor Farjeon Award, and the Kate Greenaway Medal for Illustration twice, for Dogger in 1977 and for Ella's Big Chance in 2003. In 2007 Dogger was voted the public's favourite Greenaway winner of all time. Shirley received an OBE in 1999 for services to Children's Literature, and a CBE in 2017. She is the first recipient of Booktrust's Lifetime Achievement Award.


Favorite characters and companion volumes spring to the fore this season. The star of Alfie and the Birthday Surprise returns with his younger sibling in Annie Rose Is My Little Sister by Shirley Hughes. Alfie reports on all the things that he and his sister enjoy doing together (such as reading books) then points out activities best approached solo: "Annie Rose always wants to play with my toys. She seems to like them better than her own-and that is very annoying." But Alfie is the only one who can comfort Annie Rose when she's down. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

"The perfect gift for a toddler" * Prima Baby *

PreS-K-Alfie tells about the things that he and his toddler sibling like to do together, separately, and with their parents or friends. But most special is his sister's dependence on him to be her "big brother" forever. This loving book about family relationships stresses the positive and enduring ties between siblings, and the natural feelings of protectiveness that the elder one possesses. The realistic gouache and oil-pastel illustrations show the children's bond to perfection. A special book for any household with more than one preschool child.-Judith Constantinides, formerly at East Baton Rouge Parish Main Library, LA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
