HELLO – There is a lot occurring here at Albert HQ..

In the last few days our author Ian Brown appeared with lovely Michelle Babs Jordan on BBC Radio Berkshire to tease the new Albert book in the ALBERT PICTUREBOOK SERIES.. ALBERT AND THE WIND.. The follow-up to ALBERT UPSIDE DOWN.. They also discussed Albert the pin-up calendar boy what with real Albert’s 2022 calendar coming out..

Super excitingly too, Ian did his first ever reading of Albert Upside Down to children and their parents at his local library. They probably sensed his fear but he thinks he got away with it. It was a delight to do, in fact, as we are BIG fans of libraries .. Please do support your local library. Ian’s has been fantastic. We gifted them three copies of Albert Upside Down and they have been very popular. The library also let Ian put in a window display promoting the book .. and there will be another to promote Book 2 Albert and the Wind.

There was a good turn out at the library.. Tickets went almost immediately. Ian was able to do a reading, hand out personalised stickers and colouring-in sheets (FIND LINKS IN OUR FAQs UNDER RESOURCES) and he spoke about real Albert and amazing tortoise and turtle facts. Another reading seems on the cards… and Ian is happy to discuss attending other libraries or schools to do similar.

See.. lots occurring. More news from us VERY soon…

Til next time… Thank you for all the support.
