The Lovereading4Kids comment

Algy is back and Cherry’s little brother Brad is joining them on their adventure to the world behind the plank. This time they discover a tropical island and it just so happens that being by the sea is one of the things that Algy doesn’t much like. Disaster looms when Cherry and Brad are captured by pirates. Can Algy save the day? Read this swashbuckling adventure to find out?

Algy's Amazing Adventures at Sea by Kaye Umansky

There are lots of things Algy doesn't like. He doesn't like bright colours. He doesn't like birds. But at the top of the list of things he doesn't like is the sea. So when Algy, his best friend Cherry and her little brother Brad discover that the shed at the bottom of the garden is taking them on an ocean adventure, he isn't very pleased. But will the sea turn out to be more fun than Algy always thought it was?

Early Readers from Orion Children's Books are stepping stones from picture books to reading books. A blue Early Reader is perfect for sharing and reading together.
