Welcome to our second “Monkwood Recommends”.
Ms Turner has chosen a Shirley Hughes book as this author was one of her favourites, and this story in particular was one that she enjoyed sharing with her own children.
Alfie’s painting ‘Motorbike Man’ has been entered in the children’s painting competition at the ‘Big School’s’ Harvest Fair.
His friends have done paintings too, but when the winners are announced, not everyone is happy with their prize.
Alfie wins a top prize but is more taken with the consolation prize – a forlorn looking woolly animal that looks like it needs some consoling itself.
Join Alfie on an exciting day at the fair as he comes up with a brilliant solution!
