Algy's Amazing Adventures in Space by Kaye Umansky

The Lovereading4Kids comment

A wonderful adventure for a very ordinary boy! Algy lives in an ordinary house and he has an ordinary bedroom which always seems to need tidying up. Just like everyone else! But Algy has a shed in his garden and, inside that shed there is a secret doorway into an amazing world…When Algy steps through the doorway he finds his body is lighter and soon he and his friends are bouncing through space, landing on a new planet and meeting aliens!


Algy's Amazing Adventures in Space by Kaye Umansky

What's waiting for Algy at the bottom of his garden this time? With his best friend Cherry and her little brother Brad, Algy opens the loose board at the back of his garden shed - to find himself in space! Cherry and Brad are really excited, but Algy's not so sure. Space seems very dangerous. Will he enjoy his latest adventure or not?

Early Readers are stepping stones from picture books to reading books. A blue Early Reader is perfect for sharing and reading together. A red Early Reader is the next step on your reading journey.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
