Alfie's Search for Destiny

Even though Alfie was not very tall,
he was curious about destiny, his highest call.
He asked, "Should I make it? Or is it something I see?"
His mother replied, "It's what's meant to be."

Alfie is eager to know his destiny. He leaves home in a search for answers, determined to learn about his fate. This search leads him to a range of landscapes, adventures and encounters, but still, no one can help him. That is, until he returns home and realises that his destiny is right under his nose.

Read by musician Dan Sultan, Alfie's Search for Destiny is a sweet, rhyming story about the importance of belonging, written and illustrated by David Hardy.
