HELLO – welcome to the very latest NEWS from ALBERT the tortoise HQ – with our friends Hugg ‘n’ Bugg…

Lots occurring.

As you might know, our very first ALBERT picturebook – inspired and endorsed by real Albert – launched little over two years ago. To our own tortal amazement we have just announced Book 6 in the series of picturebooks … hot on the heels of revealing that we are starting to produce Board Books of Albert stories for very little readers. It is all incredible. Thanks to everyone for all the support and thanks to publishers Graffeg.. Thanks also of course to schools, libraries and bookshops. We cannot do any of this without you all.

This was Albert’s new pose with examples of books so far… In the line up you will see ALBERT UPSIDE DOWN, ALBERT AND THE WIND, ALBERT SUPERSIZE, ALBERT IN THE AIR & ALBERT AND THE POND plus our first Board Book launching on August 22 .. ALBERT and his Friends..

Joining this line up on September 1 will be ALBERT AND THE SHED which sees Albert finding shelter from a storm, getting locked in a shed and a hilarious rescue operation that quickly gets out of hand. We look forward to sharing more with you.


You can Order the book now from the shop page at this website..

or from here in the UK…
