Hurry Up, Alfie!
It’s time for a certain little crocodile named to get up and get ready to face the world! His mom suggests a play date at the park with Alfie’s best friend, but that’s dependent on Alfie getting dressed . . . but life is just so distracting, and Alfie can do so many fun and silly things! Will they ever make it out the door?
Young readers everywhere will identify with Alfie, a youngster who is just so distractible by the world around him and all of the neat things he can do. Hurry Up, Alfie! tells a story many young readers—and their parents—will be quite familiar with: the simple struggle of getting ready to go within a timely fashion. Australian author and artist Anna Walker tells this sweet story perfectly, with a relative minimum of words, letting her adorable collages do most of the talking. The pictures are relatively simple but also very fun; readers will delight in Alfie’s antics even as parents sympathize with his mom’s determination to get him dressed and ready. This is an adorable picture book that kids will love.
