Children’s Books by Shirley Hughes

We have a selection of children’s books by celebrated children’s author and illustrator Shirley Hughes (CBE), whose death has recently been announced.  Famous for her picture books with beautiful illustrations, favourite characters include toy dog ‘Dogger’ and Alfie along with his little sister Annie Rose.  Published in 1977, Dogger won the Library Association’s Kate Greenaway Medal. Alfie’s adventures include ‘Alfie Gets in First’ when Alfie accidentally locks his Mum out and ‘Alfie Outdoors’ which follows his gardening successes.  Shirley Hughes books can be found in the Curriculum Resources Fiction Collection in the Walsall Library, and the main collection at Harrison Library.
