Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 3-5 Charlie and his cousin Ariadne are spending the summer with their Aunt Jean, the owner of a seaside novelty shop. The cousins expect to have a dull summer, but that is before they meet Mr. Cornetto, the owner of the amusement/wax museum arcade; Mrs. Cadwallader, a wealthy widow; and her spinster sister-in-law. The residents and visitors in this small English town get a new lease on life in this light summer story that is filled with the same sort of humor found in Hughes' books for younger children about Alfie. Hughes has illustrated the book with a top border of characters parading across the pages, giving glimpses of people and the action. Although some children might have trouble with the present tense narration, this is an enjoyable story for middle graders. Ginny McKee, Providence Pub. Library, R.I.

Meet the Author

Shirley was born in West Kirby, near Liverpool, and studied fashion and dress design at Liverpool Art School, before continuing her studies at the Ruskin School of Drawing and Fine Art in Oxford. She then embarked on a career as a freelance illustrator in London, where she still lives today. She illustrated other writers' work, including Noel Streatfeild, Alison Uttley, Ian Seraillier, Margaret Mahy and notably Dorothy Edwards's My Naughty Little Sister series.



Shirley began to write and draw her own picture books when her children were young. Her first book - Lucy and Tom's Day - was published in 1960, and she followed it with, among others, Dogger and the Alfie series.



Shirley Hughes has won the Other Award, the Eleanor Farjeon Award, and the Kate Greenaway Medal for Illustration twice, for Dogger in 1977 and for Ella's Big Chance in 2003. In 2007 Dogger was voted the public's favourite Greenaway winner of all time. Shirley received an OBE in 1999 for services to Children's Literature.
