The Adventures of Alfie Onion
A stand-alone comic adventure for younger readers by sublime storyteller Vivian French, with pictures by a talented new illustrator and animator, Marta Kissi. Alfie Onion has just set off on a great adventure … but only to carry his brother’s luggage. It’s his elder brother, Magnifico Onion, who’s destined to win their family a Happily Ever After. But when it turns out Magnifico isn’t half the hero he’s cracked up to be, it falls to Alfie to save the day – with a little help from his loyal dog, a talking horse and a couple of meddling magpies.
Why I love this book so much
I love this book because it’s like a twist you think the seventh son of a seventh son is going to be the hero but it could be the other way round and it’s also very interesting.I just really like this book and hope Vivian French makes more books like this!
Loved this story. Was hooked after the first paragraph and couldn’t put it down. Alfie is such a loveable character and I was desperate to find out what would become of his adventures!
