The Magical Midwinter Star

The third book in the series Tales from the Adventures of Algy starring Algy, that unique and surprisingly fluffy bird. This is a magical winter’s tale with beautiful colour illustrations at the head of each chapter, guaranteed to brighten up any dark or gloomy winter's day. A perfect winter bedtime story for children aged approximately 6 to 9 (and adults still young at heart). Like the other books in this series, the story is set in the stunning scenery of the west coast of the Scottish Highlands, and features a cast of fascinating and funny animal and bird characters drawn from the real wildlife of the area.

In the chilly gloom of his first northern winter, Algy finds it hard to stay cheerful... until he discovers some mysterious objects in the rock pools and hears about a midwinter celebration which used to take place long ago, by the light of a magical star.

Algy has to face the real dangers of the harsh Highland winter, but he is determined to bring light and joy back to the darkness, and with the help of his delightful old friends, and some very funny new ones, the story reaches a magically happy conclusion.
