Alfie has a routine. To be honest he has a lot of routines. But then one day Alfie’s babysitter is unavailable, and Alfie’s parents get Mrs Stokes instead. Mrs Stokes doesn’t do routines. Instead, she just tells Alfie to do what he likes. And that’s when things start to go weird. Does everything get hilariously out of control? Yes. Does Alfie learns a valuable lesson? Nah. This isn’t that kind of story...


Another audiobook that I found in my Audible library and I have no idea why. Did I buy it? Was it a freebie at some point? Nevertheless, I gave it a quick listen and rocketed through it quickly. It’s good, a nice way to encourage kids to get out from under the stresses of daily life and stretch their imaginations a bit. A magical little story, that I think I would have loved as a kid.

Rating: 3 / 5
