Absolutely alfie and the furry purry secret

Author: Sally Warner, Illustrator: Shearry Malone

In this entertaining spin-off of the EllRay Jakes series, Warner turns her focus to EllRay’s younger sister, seven-year-old Alfie, as she prepares to start second grade. Testing her boundaries, Alfie secretly brings home a kitten, breaking a family rule (her mother thinks Alfie is allergic). Alfie’s spirited interactions with EllRay and Hanni, a know-it-all friend in the making, add further spice to the plot. Accented by Malone’s simple b&w line drawings, it’s an emotionally incisive story; Alfie is headstrong, thoughtful, and able to own up to her missteps (eventually). - Publishers Weekly
