Ref: 2707

Alfie Tate is hamster monitor, a responsibility he takes very seriously as he sets out to find the four new teeny hamsters homes to go to. Alfie says that he was adopted when he was three so he knows all about what it is like to start over in a new home. A funny and touching narrative in which we see Alfie share his life story book with the class and in which we meet his wider adoptive family- a family which grows further as, much to Alfie's delight, Mum decided to adopt the saddest and loneliest hamster of them all... Alfonzo! Another spot-on, sensitive, gently humorous book for children from the Copper Tree series. 'Loved this book! A great story about adoption without it being an 'issues' book. Every setting should have this book' (Rosalind, Workforce Dev. Officer, LL reviewer). 'Sweet and sensitive book. Nurturing and loving class. The adoption story delicately but realistically explained. Really enjoyed this' (Ann Marie, Safeguarding Consultant, LL reviewer). Age 4-7, Paperback 26pp
