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!

MEDIA REVIEWS
There is something quintessentially comforting about Shirley Hughes' books * Sunday Telegraph *
No-one tells a plain tale better than Shirley Hughes and her telling here is brilliantly complemented, as ever, by her stunning illustrations which are the product of a deeply compassionate and carefully sharp eye * The School Librarian *
Hughes invites young readers into a world they will recognise and love, and shows that toughness is not everything * The Sunday Times *
Shirley Hughes' beautifully observed - and exquisitely illustrated - books are a national treasure. In this latest Alfie adventure, our boy hero discovers that even big boys cry * Independent *
This is one of those books that reaffirm - if reaffirmation is needed - the importance of picture books -- Chris Stephenson * Carousel *
