HELLO – from us at Albert HQ and Hello for something NEW as well.. the NEW Albert picturebook which has just launched… ALBERT IN THE AIR is landing all over the place right now. We hope you like it.
Based on real Albert – it sees Albert dig under a fence and escape his garden home. He sets off on an adventure beyond. Meanwhile, his garden chums are working on a way to find him and bring him home.
On publication day writer wrangler bloke visited the offices of the book publishers Graffeg in Cardiff and signed dozens of books. These also included new series opened Hugg ‘n’ Bugg FINDING HOME – also by Ian Brown and Eoin Clarke.
We also had some cracking opening Reviews.
From book bloggers ..
From Reader’s Digest
and from FEMALE FIRST and SOUTH WEST NEWS and THE LONDON ECONOMIC.
We’ve also started to recieve shots of the books in the wild.. Thanks to Albie the tortoise – no direct relation to Albert – who posed a treat with ALBERT IN THE AIR while he started to read.
Of course, we’re still receiving pictures of other Albert books … like this with ALBERT SUPERSIZE.
And these with ALBERT SUPERSIZE as well…
Do please keep sharing those pictures. We love to see them.
The other BIG news this week has been our road trip to Wales. We visited Merthy Tydfil in a trip organised by Stephens and George Charitable Trust. We took our Albert picturebooks storytime event – with readings, talk of real Albert, facts and fun to 5 primary schools, a pupil regerral unit and after school club. It was great to introduce somany children – more than 300 – to Albert and the books.
Thanks to S and G for organising and to all pupils and staff involved.
We have loads coming up .. more road trips .. bookshop visits and we are doing lots of interviews too. Listen out for us on local radio and elsewhere. Of course, we’ll keep you posted on our social media and here.
More from us soon. Til next time.
