Join Alfie, his little sister, Annie Rose, and their friend Bernard, in this classic Alfie tale. "One day Alfie came home from Nursery School with a card in an envelope. His best friend, Bernard, had given it to him." When Alfie is invited to Bernard's birthday party he is a bit nervous about going on his own so he takes his special blanket with him. But Alfie has so much fun that he finds he doesn't need his blanket after all - and he even makes a new friend too.
