HELLO .. The latest news from Albert HQ during a major hot spell for our part of the world. Unusually we’re actually having to keep real Albert cool. Of course, he’s pretty cool to us all the time.. But shade, cool baths and extra attention are part of a regime as temperatures touch 37 degrees.
The humans are working on, of course..
School is nearly out for summer across the UK and beyond. We’re delighted to say we’re being lined up for loads of storytime fun.
We love bringing the world of ALBERT the tortoise and the picturebooks ALBERT UPSIDE DOWN, ALBERT AND THE WIND & ALBERT SUPERSIZE to young readers. Of course, we visit loads of schools and libraries.
We also visit bookshops when invited.
We’ve recently had great storytime sessions at Waterstones in St Albans Hertfordshire – where we were also thrilled to be Picturebook of the Month with ALBERT SUPERSIZE… and at Waterstones in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.
NOW we have even more dates for the SCHOOL HOLIDAYS.. We hope you might join us.
There will be picturebook readings, tales of real Albert and fun giveaways.. Dinosaurs might also attend …
THURSDAY AUGUST 4 – from 10:30am WATERSTONES BLUEWATER SHOPPING CENTRE, KENT
WEDNESDAY AUGUST 10 – from 11am WATERSTONES BISHOPS STORTFORD, HERTFORDSHIRE

While we’re on the subject of SCHOOL HOLIDAYS… Do remember that we offer FREE colour-in sheets based on illustrations from the ALBERT picturebooks. There are EIGHT images and you just have to print them off from the Albert website FAQs page.
Also – any schools looking for visits in the Autumn term.. Our diary is open for bookings now.
More news from us soon. Thank you for the support. It is most appreciated.
Til next time..
