Description

 

See below for English description.

Alfie essaie de rester propre, mais il en est incapable. L’histoire et les images nous font croire qu’un petit garçon nous parle de son chien qui n’arrête pas de semer la pagaille, mais un rebondissement à la fin du récit nous indique que ce n’est pas le cas! Cette histoire humoristique souligne l’importance de l’amitié, de l’imagination et des mauvais coups!

Cette histoire est née il y a plusieurs années, lorsque le fils espiègle de Frieda a arrosé un invité sans méfiance avec le boyau d’arrosage. Il n’avait pas fait exprès évidemment…

 

Alfie tries to stay clean but he is forever making a mess! But wait a second . . . who is Alfie?

In this sweet, humorous story, award-winning author Frieda Wishinsky celebrates the value of harmless mischief, the joys of getting dirty, and the bond between a boy and his dog. Kids will delight in a fun twist that makes it clear just who is making the mess!

Highlighting the value of friendship, imagination and outdoor play, this fun tale will ring true for the young and the young at heart.

Original title: Alfie! No!
