The Curious Tales of Alfred the Great Thinker


Alfred, 10, is a great thinker. Or at least he thinks he’s a great thinker. 

He knows that life is full of puzzles and mysteries so he has a lot of questions to answer. With a bit of help from Rose (best friend) and Charlie (little brother), he does his best to make some sense of the world. But he will also need your assistance in dealing with certain problems. 

So make sure you’ve got your thinking cap on. Alfred could be the greatest thinker on earth. Or he could still have a lot to learn...

Perfect for ages 7 - 10 years old, this humorous and heart-warming book follows Alfred as he solves his way through five different questions in his own quirky style!
