A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird, kindle ebook edition

A surprisingly pleasant read. I know Algy slightly through Tumblr. He's a friendly and quite fluffy bird who is often introducing me and others on tumblr to poetry, weather, language and pictures of Scotland. I've enjoyed the tumblr pictures and mini stories, so this book length treatment was much fun. I had no trouble reading the book, and no trouble picking it up again when I had put it down. I look forward to having a grandchild or two or three to read this story to.

I first started following the adventures of Algy on Tumblr. I am very happy to see his story told. This is a very enjoyable read. I can't wait to read it to my little Zoe as she grows up.

A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird, kindle ebook edition

In this first book of Algy's adventures, Jenny Chapman showcases her evoking writing style, bringing to life the characters and Scottish scenery with a story that has managed to capture the hearts of children and adults alike. I read this book to my after-school group of children ranging from ages 7 to 9, and it was successful in keeping this usually rowdy group quiet and engaged. We had pleas of, 'Can we read one more page before home time?' and spoiler requests of, 'Can't you tell me if it has a happy ending?' The adventure intrigued the children, often keeping them on the edge of their seats and prompting them to think about what might happen next. In my opinion, a wonderfully entertaining book for girls and boys of all ages.

A Surprisingly Fluffy Bird, hardback edition

This book is about a fluffy bird lost at sea and how he survives.

He meets funny friends along the way when he is washed up on a new land

It's a lovely book with lots of really good pictures at the front of the book and at the start of the chapters. I really enjoyed this book, I loved the rhymes, especially the one about the author at the back, she lives in Scotland's Wild West, beside...

I really liked the imagery that her descriptive writing evokes. And I am really looking forward to the next book, the tree with a golden heart, it looks cool.
