Algy’s Balloon Helicopter


Algy received several new toys for his birthday, but his favourite was the balloon helicopter 🙂

Algy hopes you are all enjoying his birthday as much as he is! He thanks all his wonderful friends who have sent messages and greetings and contributions to his Amazing Tumblr Birthday Party on his sideblog @lovefromalgy and sends you all lots of his very fluffiest hugs xoxo

And if you have not yet had a chance to join in, the party is still in full swing 🙂


Algy is excited because it is St. Valentine’s Day and he has some beautiful red roses to give all his amazing friends on Tumblr. The wonderful thing about the Tumblrverse is that he can give roses to all his friends at once 🙂

Algy sends you all his love, and lots of very fluffy hugs from the wild and windy West Highlands of Scotland xoxo

By the next morning, it was apparent that another autumn gale was on its way. The wind was already roaring through the trees, but Algy was determined to get some of those luscious red rowan berries before they were all blown away… 


Today the Tumblr gods worked some of their amazing magic, and Algy suddenly found that he had a large number of new followers from all around the world. He was utterly astonished and delighted, and so naturally he immediately had to do a special Happy Dance 🙂

Algy wishes all you lovely new followers a very warm and fluffy welcome, and he hopes that you will enjoy his adventures in the West Highlands of Scotland.

And of course Algy also wants to share the Happy Dance with all his kind followers and sweet Tumblr friends who have been following his adventures so far.

So – dear followers, old and new – please stop whatever else you may be doing, and join Algy in this special Happy Dance today :-))

Algy loves you all xoxo

Happy Birthday Heiko @heterotopian 🙂

Algy is reblogging his special Happy Dance to celebrate your birthday 🙂 He sends you lots of very fluffy birthday hugs, and his fluffiest thanks for your wonderful friendship and loyal support over the years. Many fluffy returns! xoxo

On St. George’s Day, Algy tries to take special care of dragons, to make sure that they come to no harm. As he flew over the great sea loch, he noticed that a spiny sea serpent was struggling to make its way back out to sea against the tide, so Algy watched from the stony beach to make sure that the dragon managed to return safely to the ocean 🙂


Algy’s adventure for the PWS Halloween special. This is what Algy found when he explored that special forest referred to in the posts of certain PWS members recently 🙂 So he decided to look the other way!

Have a happy, spooky, magical Halloween everybody xoxo

Thank you for this super-spooky (but nevertheless fluffy) Halloween GIF. Did you know that the word “Halloween” means “hallowed evening” or “holy evening” and comes from a Scottish term for All Hallows’ Eve (the evening before All Hallows’ Day)? What a coincidence… Or is it really?

PWS – Paranormal Witches & Spooks

Algy is thrilled to be a part of the PWS Halloween event, thank you xoxo

Have a happy and fluffily spooky Halloween tonight, everybody 🙂

It is indeed All Hallows’ Eve, and also the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain, marking the beginning of the very darkest part of the year here in the northern Celtic lands. The two festivals combined have created the Halloween we know today 🙂

Welcome new followers! Algy is painting a picture for you 🙂

Algy has had a wonderful couple of weeks, with his adventures trending on Tumblr, articles about him in the local press, his books selling locally to visitors to the area, and lots of interest in his adventures generally. So he is reposting this special GIF – one of his all-time favourites – to welcome all his new followers and thank all his loyal friends. Thank you all very much indeed – Algy sends you all lots of surprisingly fluffy hugs xoxo

Algy is also trying to work on the illustrations for his second book, which is due to be published at the end of November, but he thinks maybe he will have to ask his assistant for some help with that 🙂

The rain had stopped, for a wee while at least, so Algy lost no time in getting back to the piles of books that were waiting for his fluffy signature.

If you are a fluffy bird, signing your name is quite an elaborate process! It requires at least four different, special coloured pencils, and because it is not easy to control a pencil with fluffy wings, it’s necessary to go over the lines time and time again 🙂

Algy is doing his best to get all the signed copies of A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird sent out to the kind people who pre-ordered them as fast as he possibly can. Many have been posted already, and the remainder will be sent out in the next few days.

If you would like to buy a signed copy – with or without a special dedication – and did not pre-order one, please send Algy an Ask on Tumblr, or contact him through the form on his new web site.

Visit Algy’s web site to read the first part of A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird and discover other fluffy delights 🙂


And now, to complete Algy’s Surprisingly Fluffy Party… Algy’s Surprisingly Fluffy Giveaway Prize Draw…
(With apologies for the slight delay!)

Here is the full list of the lucky winners, shown in the order in which Algy drew their names out of his hat. Algy will be contacting you shortly to confirm your postal addresses. Congratulations to you all – Algy hopes very much that you will like your prizes :))

This has been the very best and fluffiest party ever, with fantastic participation from so many of Algy’s friends, and the amazing achievement of passing Algy’s campaign target during the party.
