    Default Late 70s/early 80s childrens book series

    My cousin had a hardback book series that I loved to read when I visited. They were stories based round a boy character and I think the illustrations may have been in pastels or some paint effect. The character had a name like Alfie and may have been American (I think I remember a reference to walking blocks instead of streets but I could be wrong). The most vivid memory I have is the book where he gets into a fight and makes the other boys nose bleed then has bad dreams/fantasies about the blood and his guilt until he apologises. Does that ring any bells?!

    Would it be the Shirley Hughes 'Alfie' books you're thinking of Costello? Lovely illustrations in them.
