LOOK WHAT ALGY’S GOT!
The long wait is over… Algy’s first book A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird will be officially published on Tuesday 7th July, and is already available to order from Amazon. You will be able to order it from any bookseller from 7th July 2015.
The Book Depository offers free international shipping worldwide, but at present their prices are too high – please wait until after 7th July, when they should adjust to the correct price.
Algy has published two editions – a deluxe hardback edition with a cloth cover and dustjacket, and a cheap paperback edition. The hardback edition is printed on different presses from the paperback, and the quality of both illustrations and text is higher in the hardback, but of course it’s more expensive. The book has 120 pages (10 chapters), with a half-page colour illustration at the start of each chapter.
A Kindle e-book version will also be available very soon.
Recommended Retail Prices are:
Hardback £13.99 in the UK, €17.99 in Europe, $21.99 in the USA and $22.99 in Canada.
Paperback: £5.99 in the UK, €8.99 in Europe, $8.99 in the USA, $9.99 in Canada and $11.99 in Australia.
Prices at booksellers will vary, and readers in countries not listed above will probably find it cheapest to buy either from Amazon or from The Book Depository. Bookstores will be able to order the book through their usual channels.
A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird is the first book in the series Tales from the Adventures of Algy, and further books will follow. Algy is hoping to publish his second book in time for Christmas 🙂
Although listed as a children’s book, Algy is hoping that many of his
followers of all ages will enjoy it 🙂 If you are buying for children,
Algy advises that the minimum reading age for his book is around 7-8,
depending on the child, although of course it can be read aloud to younger children.
Algy is preparing an online dictionary of the
trickier words in the book to help young readers and readers whose first
language is not English. More news about this shortly.
Algy will show you more of his book and make further exciting announcements very soon 🙂
If you are one of the very kind people who pre-ordered a signed copy of the book, Algy is in the process of contacting you to confirm your address and any dates that you may be away. The signed copies will be posted out during the week commencing 13th July, unless you tell Algy to wait.
Algy is sorry it took so long to get here, but now that it is available at last, he hopes very much that you will enjoy it!
Any questions? Just ask 🙂
