Author(s): Allison Colpoys; Davina Bell
The day before the underwater fancy-dress parade, Alfie got that feeling ... Sometimes it's hard to be brave. Sometimes you get that feeling. Sometimes you're just not ready . . . until, one day, you are. From a dynamic new picture-book partnership comes the story of Alfie and a big octopus wearing a tiny hat and the things you can only whisper to the cowboys on your wallpaper.
