HELLO – latest news from Albert HQ .. and our friends Hugg ‘n’ Bugg.
Lots going on.. we are thrilled to say.

We had a great visit to Waterstone’s bookshop in Bishop’s Stortford in Hertfordshire the other day. Thanks to all the staff and to all those who came along to hear stories of Albert and Hugg and Bugg.

The next stop on our storytime bookshop tour is Waterstone’s in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk.. on Saturday November 12 at 11am.. Hope to see some there.

We’ve been busy talking on the radio again too… Great to catch with two chums of the airwaves and talk about new Albert book ALBERT IN THE AIR and new H n B book FINDING HOME.

Thanks to Babs Michel at BBC Three Counties Radio covering Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Hertfordshire.

And to Susan Hanks at BBC Stoke as well…

We’ve been getting some great feedback on the new books too.. Thank you and please remember to keep posting YOUR reviews if you can.

Book blogger Mary Esther Judy at Fallen Story Books gave a smashing account for ALBERT IN THE AIR.. Describing it as EXPERT STORYTELLING, FABULOUS IN EVERY WAY and adding YOU WILL NEVER GET TIRED OF READING ABOUT ALBERT. Thank you so much….

We also had a nice review for Hugg ‘n’ Bugg FINDING HOME too.. comparing the s tory to Roald DAHL and Julia DONALDSON… We’ll take that.

We’re adding COLOUR-IN sheets to the Hugg ‘n’ Bugg section of this site.. based on the picturebook illustrations by Eoin Clarke. We hope you have fun doing them.

We’re ;looking forward to heading NORTH .. well, north east actually to SUNDERLAND to take part in the Northern Children’s Book Festival .. we’re visiting two schools up there in collaboration with the library service. We are very excited. News of that soon.

More news of all sorts soon from us.. Thank you as ever for all the support.

Til next time…
