Here we come 2024

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

The New Year has hardly begun and we are busy. We are NOT complaining.

We hope you had a great New Year and like us are looking forward to what 2024 may bring.

It’s already brought us a FAB Review from the amazing folk at SHED OF THE YEAR.. for our ALBERT picturebook ALBERT AND THE SHED.

It is quite an honour. The Shed of the Year is a very serious contest and it’s a real thrill to have our book looked at by the organisers. And, fortunately – they like it. They called it A GREAT BOOK.

They even hope the book might kick start a love of sheds in young readers. Well, you never know.

We are pleased to say our Diary is starting to get busy for the year ahead. Bookings for school events, bookshop visits and more are coming in.

We have just confirmed our ALBERT the tortoise, Hugg ‘n’ Bugg picturebook storytime will be at the Half Term run of events for Bridgend Children’s Literature Festival in Bridgend, Wales in February. Full details to come but we will be appearing at a number of venues over six days in Bridgend, Maesteg, Bettws and at BrynGarw Park.

We’re excited to be taking part and look forward to meeting all those who come along.

We thought New Year – new start .. a bit.. So we have also updated our HELLO video here on the home page of our website and on our FB page and our X (twitter) pages.

We’re rather pleased with it. So much is occurring it’s a bit out of date already. But we will work on a new update soon.

We hope you enjoy it. More news from us very soon. Til next time.. Take a look at our Hello video here –
