Pet tortoise Albert is having a bad day. His sleep is disturbed by the wind in the trees and then, as he goes to tuck into his food, the wind blows it away. Can the other garden creatures rally round and help Albert retrieve his meal? And will Albert be able to thank them all properly?

Comical, charming illustrations with a classic feel bring this timeless tale to life, revealing the importance of helping others and showing gratitude for that help. Also included – fascinating facts about the real tortoise called Albert who inspired this story, a modern day mini-dinosaur living life on the veg!

    Reviews:

    'Albert strikes again! I’m glad it’s not just me who has trouble with wind!' - Clive Mantle, Game of Thrones, Casualty, Vicar of Dibley, Robin of Sherwood, author of the Freddie Malone books

    'Albert is back! Prepare for another episode in the life of the loveable tortoise, told by Ian Brown, with beautiful illustrations by Eoin Clarke. This time a strong breeze blows through the shrubbery, making Albert's life very difficult. Luckily there is a strong community spirit in the garden, and his neighbours rally round and bring their various talents to the problem. After all, what are friends for?' - Michael Aspel, TV presenter (Antiques Roadshow, This Is Your Life, Aspel & Co, Crackerjack, Ask Aspel)
