Happy book birthday, Aalfred and Aalbert!

We’re delighted that Morag Hood’s latest and greatest book publishes today – world, say hello to Aalfred and Aalbert!

Aardvarks Aalfred and Aalbert both need a pal. But Aalfred sleeps in the day, and Aalbert sleeps at night. How will they ever get the chance to meet? Bird conjures up a series of sillier and sillier schemes to get the two aardvarks into the same place, but their paths simply refuse to cross. Until one day, when they find each other in the most unexpected way – and now Aalfred and Aalbert will never lose each other again.

Aalfred and Aalbert is as funny and memorable as Morag Hood’s previous books, Colin and Lee, Carrot and Pea, I Am Bat and The Steves. With its sweet and natural portrayal of love accidentally blooming between two aardvarks, it will make a brilliant gift for Valentine’s Day.

With absolutely delightful illustrations and a charming, heartwarming story that will garner fans from eight to eighty, Aalfred and Aalbert will become firm companions to all picture book fans.
