Five Minutes, Alfie written by Lily Mae Walters Illustrated by Jack Foster #Review #Giveaway

Here's another picture book from Lily Mae Walters. You can also win a paperback copy of Five Minutes, Alfie. Details on how to enter are at the foot of this post. Alfie snuggles down in bed,
dreams still in his little head.

He dreams he's a king going out for a ride.
"A dragon sleeps in front of the gate," they cried.

How will they succeed in waking him up?
By helping each other and lots of luck.
At 58 pages, this is a lovely book to share with young children. Each page has a bold, colourful illustration and four line text to accompany it. With rhyme and rhythm, the story is ideal to read aloud and enjoy. The subject matter is age appropriate and there is scope for different voices for the different characters who you meet.  With the theme of kindness to all, it has a reassuring ethos.
Cat and Mouse say: Go Alfie!
