Alfie's Nursery School is right next door to the Big School. Alfie wishes that he could be friends with the most popular big boy, Ian Barger, but Ian never takes any notice of the little kids.

One morning, Mum takes Alfie to a Plant Pot Sale. Alfie hasn't been there long when he spots Ian Barger screaming and yelling, "I want my mummy!". Ian grabs Alfie's hand and holds onto him very tightly until his mum returns. Alfie realizes that big boys don't always act so big after all!

An 'Alfie' Classic

My son and I really enjoy reading the stories about Alfie. Quite often we can see whether Alfie is like my little boy as they are very similar.

I love the stories of Alfie as they are very true to life and its lovely to follow Alfie growing up and learning new things.

As in most of my reviews of childrens books, the illustrations are wonderful and very lifelike.
