HELLO – welcome to all the latest from Albert HQ, the world of real Albert the tortoise and all the Albert goodies like picturebooks, T shirts, Tote bags, colour-in sheets and much more…

Talking of more…  We have TORTally supersize news of our own …

We’ve been making headlines in publishing trade Press The Bookseller and Bookbrunch with the announcement that there are to be FOUR MORE Albert picturebooks in 2023 and 2024. The four new titles will add to ALBERT UPSIDE DOWN, ALBERT AND THE WIND, ALBERT SUPERSIZE – and due in October ALBERT IN THE AIR.

We are thrilled about this and look forward to extending the catalogue of Albert adventures with his garden friends – and beyond.


We’ve also been making waves with our bookshops storytime sessions.

We’ve recently visited branches of Waterstone’s at St Albans Hertfordshire, Bluewater Kent, Bury St Edmunds Suffolk, Bishop’s Stortford Hertfordshire, Truro Cornwall…. NOW we have had a terrific visit to the branch at Maidstone in Kent. Thanks to all who came along, listened, bought and also to the amazing bookseller team. There are signed Albert books in the store right now on display.

We also made a flying visit to the wonderful branch of Waterstone’s at Gower Street near Euston in London. We signed books, sold while there and left them with amazing bookplates – some signed by the author bloke, the illustrator bloke and Albert. Thanks to the team at the store for their support. Of course, we had to do a pose in their lovely story corner.

After some lovely feedback to our visits – we’re waiting to hear about some return visits and some NEW destinations. So please keep your eyes peeled.. for news.. we could be coming to your area soon with Albert the tortoise storytime, book signing, tales of real Albert and giveaways.. plus dinosaurs.

The Countdown is ON for the release of the latest Albert book – ALBERT IN THE AIR.. will be out as ebook, animated ebook and paperback soon.

We have some lovely trailers for the book now. Check out the website and have a rummage.

Meanwhile – here’s one you might enjoy. … More news soon. Til next time…
