Shirley Hughes: Ruby in the Ruins
A brand new story from the amazingly prolific classic author Shirley Hughes! Shirley Hughes is the author of one of our customer favourites, the Alfie series.
In this new book, Ruby's father has just returned to London after fighting in the Second World War. Ruby hardly recognises her father, the war has changed him. But when she falls and hurts herself in the ruins near her home, there's only one person she wants to rescue her.
This is a wonderfully evocative depiction of life in post-war London, by one of the world's best loved illustrators.
