Alfie in the Garden

The best thing – for me – about little bunny Alfie’s adventure in the garden was not the exotic animals he found. (I suspect that was mainly his imagination at work.)

Debi Gliori, Alfie in the Garden

As almost always with Debi Gliori’s books, it’s the mother-child relationship that is so beautiful. Her latest picture book, Alfie in the Garden, is no exception. Little Alfie comes out to help his mum in the garden. He has a watering can, and he knows how to use it.

He goes exploring, and he is a lion. He finds an elephant. He befriends and plays with a host of big but mostly smaller animals.

Until he is very tired and then he goes to find his mum, and she knows exactly what Alfie needs.

  1. Thank you. It’s been a very long day, and I could do with going to find my mum too. Sometimes, only a proper grown-up knows what you really need. I’m delighted that Alfie has won your heart. From the first moment he appeared on paper in front of me, I have to confess to being smitten by this little rabbit. Hopefully, there will be more stories about him.
