The Underwater Fancy-Dress Parade

Davina Bell, illustrated by Allison Colpoys

The night 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.

For ages three to five years old
