A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird, paperback edition

Bought for two granddaughters and signed by Algy. Youngest granddaughter has nearly finished the third book and loves the stories. I read them myself and also love them. The author is not afraid to introduce ‘hard’ words to extend the young reader’s vocabulary and her different poetry styles are lovely. The setting is delightful, especially if you know the West coast of Scotland.

A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird, paperback edition

I was very lucky to be given a copy of this book and I have finally managed to get round to reading it.

Although it's written for children, adults can also enjoy it,either reading by themselves or with a child. The story is a simple story which makes it easy to understand but is written in a way to make it interesting and the story keeps flowing. The reader wants to know how Algy the bird will get on from floating in the sea and making it to land.

There are particular things that I like about this book. I like the fact that it has repetition of the sound of the sea so children can join in and this helps with their speech and language and also the song and long poem that is in it. I don't think there is much exposure to long poems at this age like there used to be and it reminded me of when I was young and read The Jumblies and Hiawatha etc.

All in all a good read.

From start to finish this book is a wonderful read for both young and old.

The main character Algy becomes a close friend and you are desperate to find out what happens to him on his exciting adventure.

The writing encapsulates you and the magical way of writing helps you identify the other wildlife and helps transports you to the this new world, making you not just the reader but part of the story.

I would give this book 1000 stars and recommend it to everyone, please start your reading journey with Algy today as I can't wait to find out what he gets up to next.

Algy is a surprisingly fluffy bird with a big heart and an amazing skill for singing songs. He has become more than a character on paper he has become a real friend.
