    One thought on “Albert's Almost Amazing Adventure”

    1. I won this book from the Giveaways and I was not disappointed. My son really liked the Pirates and Aliens in it. I personally liked how everything he talked about was not amazing but the kids imaginations were.

    2. A fun book about a young boy, Albert who upon his return from a vacation to Maine shares his adventures with his friends. As Albert starts to tell of each adventure one of his friends jumps in and finishes his tale with an exciting, heroic ending! The illustrations for Albert's stories are in black and white while the exciting, heroic stories from the kids' imaginations are in color. I like Albert's true stories best. Albert recounts with full gusto a how man eating a hot dog drops mustard witho [...]

    3. ages 5-8This book captures the essence of kids' imaginations. Albert has just come back from a trip to Maine, and he's telling his friends about the amazing things he did and saw there. When he pauses for dramatic effect, his friends jump in with wild guesses. I really enjoyed it.It has just great humor, and I love the alternating black and white and color pictures based on the context of the story. Albert tries to tell his friends about his trip to Maine, and they keep jumping in with guesses o [...]

    4. A trip to Maine can always be an adventure, and it's all in the retelling to your friends!Grey tones used for 'regular' scenes in which Albert tries to tell his friends what he saw. His friends jump in and make guesses based on his word choice, such as "I saw a man eating-" and when we turn the page we see in bright colors, and large black font, the friends' guess, along with their inferences about what happened. This pattern repeats several times until he finally gets to the surprise ending, bu [...]

    5. * giveaway* My kids and I enjoyed this story very much. It is very funny, creative, imaginative and the pictures are beautiful. At first just looking through the pages I was not sure about the zombies and pirates in the story lol, but we enjoyed it even more when we read the whole story. The zombie cats were the best ;)) Getting interrupted telling a story, is something I know just too well as a mommy !!

    6. Great kids book; fun story with creative and fun illustrations. One of the few kids books both my 6 year old and I truly enjoyed. He wanted to read it again immediately, and for once I didn't cringe at the suggestion :)
