HELLO – welcome to the latest news from ALBERT HQ – with our friends Hugg ‘n’ Bugg.

Still loads going on. Which keep us on our toes.

We received a great batch of new photos from our wonderful storytime visit to National Trust Dyffryn Gardens in St Nicholas, Wales.

It was wonderful to perform in the open air, in a grand garden setting telling stories about a tortoise in a garden… especially ALBERT AND THE POND and ALBERT AND THE SHED.. two classic garden features.



We loved our time at Dyffryn and we are already talking about a return visit.

We’re also delighted to be receiving many photos from our tortoise friends .. receiving their copies of new Albert picturebook ALBERT AND THE SHED. Many are even posing by sheds.


Please keep sharing YOUR pictures with our goodies .. books, t shirts, tote bags…

As well as seeing ALBERT AND THE SHED landing with readers, our first Board Book ALBERT and his Friends is also arriving with readers and Reviewers and Bloggers.

We had a lovely response from Children’s Blogger Play-to-Learn-with-Katy.


We love HIGHLY RECOMMEND and DELIGHTFUL to describe the book. Thanks to all for this feedback.

We also had a shout oput from another Blogger for ALBERT AND THE SHED. Thanks to The Strawberry Post. We look forward to their Review of the book in due course.


We’ve been on the radio again.. talking with Hannah Murray Lopez at talkRadio Europe covering Spain and other parts of Europe. Always great to catch up. The interview is set to broadcast on Thursday September 14 (to be confirmed)

Our previous interview with BBC Radio Jersey’s Alison Moss is set to be broadcast the next day – Friday September 15 – as part of a special show coming from Jersey Zoo.

As you know, we’ve been on the road a bit recently. We love seeing our books on display in shops. We put together a few shots from recent visits to Waterstones in Kent’s Bluewater, Maidstone, Orpongton and Cornwall’s Truro and The Ivybridge Bookshop in Ivybridge, Devon plus the shop at Dyffryn Gardens in Wales. We love it.

More news from us soon. Thank you for all the support you show us.

Til next time…
