When Alfie was just a baby he cried and smiled and sometimes ...slept. When he was one he walked. He ate bananas, crashed his building blocks and pulled Mum's hair. When he was two, he talked and put worms in his mouth, pulled up all the plants and didn't like having his hair washed. Now he's three all sorts of things are happening. He sleeps in his own big bed and rides his trike. He can count and draw nice pictures of Daddy with six eyes, standing in the rain. He can swim and squeeze toothpaste out fast - all over everywhere ...Selina's delightful, witty and totally true to life observations of growing up from nought to three will strike a chord with parents and children. Based on the adventures and antics of her own son, time and time again, she captures a milestone in his childhood, which will be only too familiar to carefree children and their long-suffering parents around the globe!
