HELLO – Welcome to the latest news from Albert the tortoise and our friends Hugg ‘n’ Bugg.

Busy times still and we are very excited.

It’s been a right Royal time in London where Albert lives.

We had all sorts of Coronation events for King Charles III.

Of course – we slightly got in on the act…

A chance to pose with “His Majesty”..  with our picturebooks could not be missed..

We enjoyed the Coronation Concert too – but felt the Drone display of a whale might have been enhanced with a bit of added tortoise…

After all that excitement – even more at Albert HQ as advance copies of NEW Albert picturebook ALBERT AND THE POND arrived.

Of course – some posing was needed and Albert stepped up…


The new book is officially published on June 15 but you can order  it now from places like this :

Albert and the Pond

and this..


As ever we were delighted to drop into our local bookshop – Jo’s Bookshop in Chingford to sign a fresh batch of ALBERT AND THE WIND & ALBERT IN THE AIR picturebooks.

Do support your local bookshops when you can. And – as always – thank you for supporting us as you do.

More news soon ..  we’re off to visit schools in Lincolnshire…

Til next time…
