HELLO – It happened. The launch week for the second Albert the tortoise picturebook ALBERT AND THE WIND (follow-up to ALBERT UPSIDE DOWN) blew through the media and, we hope, made a certain impression.

Radio interviews, blogs, interviews, articles, TV appearances and bookshop and library window displays. It has all been going on. Wow. Thank you to all who have helped and supported. And there is still more to come.

We have done radio interviews with BBC regional radio in Somerset, Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Kent, Suffolk and Northamptonshire. A TV appearance for London and the South East thanks to London Live. It’s been amazing. It was also lovely to be Book Illustration of the Day thanks to author / illustrator James Mayhew. A special buzz for our illustrator Eoin Clarke.

As you know we also like to support libraries and bookshops. So, it’s a special thrill to see the amazing window display to shellebrate the book launch at our very local bookseller. It looks amazing. Big thanks to all the team there.

As we say, more to come.. So watch this space folks. We will keep you posted right here at the Albert website – the home / hub of Albert HQ.
