The Lovereading4Kids comment

Albert loves making up stories, and his mum and dad love listening to them. But when his baby brother Henry arrives, no-one seems to have time to listen to stories any more. With everyone fussing round Little Henry, Albert feels smaller and smaller. Fortunately Mum and Dad notice and Albert gets to tell his special story. This little snapshot of family life is the perfect book for parents and children to share, with lots to talk about especially after the arrival of a new sibling. Jez Alborough’s illustrations are warm and expressive as ever and the characters will become household favourites. ~ Andrea Reece
