HELLO – the latest news from ALBERT HQ and loads is occurring .. even though it’s holiday season for many.
The hot, dry weather continues for real Albert. Regular baths and shade are his main allies. It would be nice to get a bit of rain soon.
Despite the heat, Albert is – of course – also supervising much human activity by wrangler, writer bloke and others.
This week we had a great chat with David White on his afternoon show on BBC Radio Cornwall to talk all about our forthcoming school holidays storytime event at Waterstone’s bookshop in Truro, Cornwall – on TUESDAY AUGUST 16. We’ll be there from 11:30am. Lovely to talk with David – thanks to him and his team.
You know how we love to see all the ALBERT goodies in the wild and how much we like it when you share YOUR pictures with us.. One sharp-eyed friend spotted copies of the ALBERT picturebooks in a bookshop in Cardiff, wales.. in Welsh. We were thrilled to see this. Please keep sharing any sightings or you with Albert stuff.
We had a great time at our latest storytime event at Waterstone’s in Bluewater shopping centre, Dartford, Kent. A lovely turnout and it was great to introduce a new group to the world of Albert the tortoise. Especially as so much of Albert’s life was spent not far from Bluewater in Gravesend, Kent. We were delighted to read two stories and then to sell a nice stack of books – plus hand out stickers and colour-in sheets. Then we signed an even bigger stack of new Albert books. Thanks to all who came along and to all the team at Waterstone’s. A great visit – and we hope to return in the future for more storytimes.
Hopefully things will go as well next week when we do our next storytime visit to Waterstone’s in Bishop’s Stortford, Hertfordshire. We’re there from 11am and we are really looking forward to it. Do come along if you can make it.
Don’t forget – we’re also appearing at Waterstone’s Maidstone in Kent on Saturday August 20 from 11:00am .. Come along if you can.
