This is the first book in this unique series of engaging tales set in the beautiful but rugged scenery of the wild west coast of the Scottish Highlands, with a cast of memorable wildlife characters, each with its own distinctive voice... and Algy.
Algy is completely and utterly lost - at sea! When his tiny raft emerges from the swirling mist, Algy finally sees the rocky coast and hills of a foreign land... but can he manage to reach the shore safely, and then survive in this strange new place?
This is a thrilling story of endurance and achievement; dangers and misfortune overcome; funny, friendly creatures and mean, nasty beasts, and - making his way through it all with endless good humour and a song in his beak - an extraordinary and talented bird, who is, without doubt, surprisingly fluffy.
"In this first book of Algy's adventures, Jenny Chapman showcases her evoking writing style, bringing to life the characters and Scottish scenery with a story that has managed to capture the hearts of children and adults alike. I read this book to my after-school group of children ranging from ages 7 to 9, and it was successful in keeping this usually rowdy group quiet and engaged. We had pleas of, 'Can we read one more page before home time?' and spoiler requests of, 'Can't you tell me if it has a happy ending?' The adventure intrigued the children, often keeping them on the edge of their seats and prompting them to think about what might happen next. In my opinion, a wonderfully entertaining book for girls and boys of all ages."
For young readers aged 7 to 10, and the perfect bedtime story for the wee ones - they will keep coming back for more :) The Adventures of Algy books are also loved by many grown-ups who are still young at heart
