About this deal

This story is perfect for teaching children about resilience, determination and the power of working together.

Here, at the Imagining History homestead, the stories of children's author Caryl Hart are a mega-hit. The garden has grown beyond all belief and these are not just any old plants - oh, no - Albie's seeds have grown into great big jurassic jungle!It shows Neanderthal – or stone age – people sewing hides, carving a bear and playing a bone flute, as well as Albie and his new friend Thorn painting their adventure on the cave wall.

It seems like just another ordinary day to Albie until he finds… a hippo in the paddling pool, zebras up the tree and his sister, Mary, on the warpath! For ten years, Whiffy Wilson has been delighting children and grown ups with his funny refusals and cheeky behaviour. Albie's recent adventures have seen him visit Ancient Egypt in How to find Egyptian Treasure and Ancient Rome in How to Drive a Roman Chariot .They make these books so much fun for kids but at the same time they think responsibly about how they present Albie’s world to them. Whereas his mum was a playful sharer – she’d listen to his questions such as ‘Why does cheese on toast always go stringy? The caves were closed to the public, but my husband was studying archaeology and somehow persuaded the local guardian to let us have a look! Sometimes I read a book which just blows me away and The Many Worlds of Albie Bright by Christopher Edge is one of them… This book is such a delight it made me laugh out loud, took my breath away and made me cry.

This charming and imaginative story is set against a backdrop of 14 beautifully intricate watercolor illustrations that help bring the story to life. We are the kind of parents who expect our (now adult) children to take responsibility for their own learning and life choices, and tried to encourage them to be independent thinkers. He may be ‘The Man Who Can Explain Everything’ but from Albie’s perspective he’s never around to explain anything.I often get messages on social media from parents and children eagerly awaiting the next adventure, and many parents telling me they read Albie stories every night.

They were very child-centric in the way they brought us up, giving us the power to make decisions and encouraging us to challenge ourselves work things out for ourselves.

With bold, retro illustrations, jaunty, rhyming text and cute, funny characters, these stories will delight toddlers and pre-school children.
