Alfie in the woods by Debi Gliori

Bloomsbury, 2017. ISBN 9781408872048
Alfie, the little rabbit with the big imagination, is back in a new adventure, this time walking through the woods. As he gathers woodland treasures and plays hide-and-seek he notices many of the little creatures and his mind morphs him into becoming each of them. Such a busy day - luckily Daddy is there to carry him and his treasures home.
Deb Gliori's distinctive illustrations bring the woods to life but with soft lines, textures and palettes, it does not become a place that is too scary for the littlest reader. It will encourage lots of imaginative and active play and then be perfect for drawing the curtains on the day as a bedtime story.
