About this deal

She wrote two novels for older children, Hero on a Bicycle, about a 13-year-old Italian boy during the occupation of Florence, and Whistling in the Dark, set during the Liverpool Blitz. In this blog, I aim to explore the many ways that Shirley Hughes can be remembered in the modern-day classroom. Lily and mum are worried when Bobbo the toy dog goes missing - but he soon turns up in a school playground. Many famous authors, including Michael Morpurgo, Julia Donaldson and Philip Pullman, paid tribute to her after her death. Shirley Hughes's iconic Alfie takes a trip into the garden and starts gardening and finding out more about the creepy crawlies.

An excellent book set featuring four books written and illustrated by Hughes is our Shirley Hughes Collection 4 Books Set. The book is beautifully produced, with all the original illustrations and deserves pride of place in every child's library, and many adults will have fond memories of many of the stories and will delight in sharing them with their own children. On one special day, he and his best friend, Bernard, make birthday surprises for a very, very old lady.I am homesick for those early years with my children when we would curl up with a book and look at it together!

She studied drawing and costume design at Liverpool School of Art and the Ruskin School of Drawing in Oxford. There are so many classic children's stories to be read and enjoyed, but this collection is without a doubt one of my very favourites. Lily's mum is in bed with flu and dad has to go to work, so Lily must spend the day at Melanie's house. Although it is 30 years since Alfie was first brought to life in Shirley Hughes’ intricately illustrated stories, he has lost none of his appeal and still delights with his unique and charming child’s-eye view of the world which makes the ordinary seem extraordinary.Author and illustrator Shirley Hughes OBE was the first ever Book Trust Lifetime Achievement Award winner. Since their mother died, Annaple has frustrated her younger siblings with her over-zealous housekeeping, and terrible cooking. There's also a selection of stories for older readers including The Lion and the Unicorn and Enchantment in the Garden, which combine satisfyingly longer texts with marvellously expansive pictures.
