Little Alf’s Eighth Book Gets Published

Sold out before it hit the shelves…

Yorkshire Dales author Hannah Russell has penned another book about 28 inches high pony, Little Alf. Most of you will know Little Alf as the cheeky miniature Shetland who has a series of books about him by author and owner Hannah.  

Alf first rose to fame in October 2014 when his first book was published, after Hannah started a blog about him. His following soon grew on social media to thousands of followers. Over the years Little Alf has had quite a lot of adventures from meeting royalty to winning ‘New York’s’ literacy awards with his books.

Last year his true story was published with ‘Little Brown Publishing’ in London. ‘Little Alf the true story of a pint-sized pony who had found his forever home’ which was a best seller on Amazon.

This year Hannah has been working on a new book, the eighth in the Little Alf collection. ‘Little Alf and the Christmas wish’ is a book aimed at children five years and under and is thirty two pages full of illustrations. The story tells the magical tale of Little Alf and Hannah at Christmas time. They have a very special Christmas wish that they hope will be granted when they leave a special letter to Santa by the fire one night…

The book is £9.99 and went on sale last week with ‘pre orders’ to be released on the 1st of December. In less than 24 hours the book sold out across the UK and the USA.

Hannah said ‘I can’t believe the book has sold out, I’ve never had that happen so fast before.  I was actually quite nervous about bringing the book out in the first place as it’s not my usual audience. I’m really excited to see what everyone thinks of the book. I love Christmas so it’s been a pleasure to work on with my illustrator’

Luckily there will be some more copies available before Christmas which will be released on the 10th December. Find out more via Little Alf’s website here –
