Davina Bell & Allison Colpoys | Scribble, Australia | 32pp | 25.5 x 21 cm
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.
