HELLO – welcome to the latest news from ALBERT the tortoise HQ.

Lots going on… we are thrilled to say.

Firstly – we hope you are finding the new Albert picturebook ALBERT SUPERSIZE.. If you have it we would love you to post a Review on those shopping sites, if you can. Or on Albert’s page on facebook. Or just send us a comment on facebook, twitter or insta .. or tiktok ..

We received a great Review for all THREE Albert books this week from a top young fan and his tortoise Pippin in Scotland.

We love to get YOUR Reviews – and also YOUR Book Pose pictures.. Do share them with us.

It’s great to see comments like LOVELY STORY.. ENTHRALLED… ILLUSTRATIONS ARE BEAUTIFUL. .. Thank you.



Also this week we did a two day visit to a large Primary School in Woodford, Redbridge (St Antony’s) to mark the school setting up as new library.

We talked to all ages about real Albert, tortoises and turtles and we read from all three Albert picturebooks.

Thanks to all at the school who invited us and made  it possible ansd thanks to all pupils and staff for being so enthusiastic.

A GREAT finish to the week when we saw on instagram the winner of I’m A Celebrity Get Me Out of Here and ex-Emmerdale star Danny Miller reading ALBERT SUPERSIZE to his baby Albert. Wowzers…  Danny called the book BRILLIANT and said it was Albert’s FAVOURITE. Tortally excellent.

Hopefully all the attention w on’t go to tortoise Albert’s head.


We have more busy times coming up.. More radio intereviews and loads of visits to libraries in Waltham Forest to read from the Albert books.

More news on all that and everything right here soon.

Thank you – and please keep supporting Albert, our books, T shirts, tote bags and tell your chums.

Til next time…
