    Book details

An illustrated collection of poetry, centring around the life of Annie Rose, Alfie's little sister. There are poems for quiet times, poems for busy times and poems about all aspects of a child's everyday life.

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. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

  • By Tracy Hopkins on 9 December 2014

    We're big Shirley Hughes fans in our house, and these delightful rhymes about everyday situations in children's lives are a wonderful way to introduce small children to poetry. Beautiful illustrations and imaginative verse make this perfect bedtime reading (especially when you need something short when the kids want just one more!)

    I bought this for a friend's new granchild. Her daughter was thrilled with the illustrations. My own children, now well grown up, also loved the Shirley Hughes books.

    Wonderful book by Shirley Hughes, my very favourite children's author. Sadly the picture of the front cover (Why I ordered the book) does not match what was received, so albeit being a lovely book, I can only give it 3 stars.

    My daughter recived this book for her 2nd birthday and it has been a firm favorite with her and her 4 yr old brother ever since. they love the pictures and spend ages looking at the detail in each one. my son finds some of the poems very funny as he says Annie Rose is just like his little sister. i think they will enjoy this book for many years to come and so will i. we have now started a Shirley Hughes collection as we love this boo so much.

    These stories are SO nice, with lovely illustrations. My 4 year old grand-daughter really likes them, and the Rhymes is a nice change from the usual stories. highly recommended.

    Beautifully illustrated with rhymes that are a joy to read and I'm sure my one year old granddaughter will love Alfie and Annie Rose just as her mummy and aunts and uncles did!
