Reviews:

'Our Albert's favourite bedtime story' Danny Miller ex-Emmerdale, winner I’m A Celebrity

'Full of gentle humour, kindness and creatures, this latest Albert episode told in Ian Brown’s dramatic style and with Eoin Clarke’s hilarious illustrations is every bit as entertaining as ever.' Jill Bennett, Red Reading Hub

'A lovely tale of friendship and big dreams' It's All About Stories

'A laugh-out-loud funny tale that inspires curiosity; completely engaging, heartwarming and intriguing; I can’t recommend Albert Supersize (and the others!) highly enough.’ Mary Esther Judy, Fallen Star Stories

'Colourful and thoughtful illustrations' Best of British Magazine

'This book’s potential is twofold. It can be read for pleasure as a lovely tale of friendship and helping others or alternatively it offers an opportunity for children to explore and learn more about pre-historic creatures such as turtles/dinosaurs or complement a topic on minibeasts/habitats. Albert is based on a real tortoise who has his own Twitter page, so together with the facts in the peritext, the stories about Albert are a great way to encourage learning and discussions about all kinds of creatures – great and small.

'Although the amount of text is minimal, the vocabulary has been chosen carefully. Words such as snuffed, summit and scurry will expand children’s repertoire of words without hindering their understanding of the story.' Just Imagine

'A lovely tale of friendship and big dreams' It's All About Stories

'I would recommend this book to anyone, it’s not only a fun story, but this particular one is so visually appealing with so much detail and very colourful pages at the start too, and it’s especially fun to look at for anyone who’s obsessed with dinosaurs' The Strawberry Post
