Algy's Amazing Adventures in the Arctic
By Kaye Umansky
Illustrated by Richard Watson
A brand-new, laugh-out-loud Early Reader about a boy who discovers another world at the bottom of his garden - from bestselling author Kaye Umansky.
Early Readers are stepping stones from picture books to reading books. A blue Early Reader is perfect for sharing and reading together. A red Early Reader is the next step on your reading journey.
Algy can't wait to see what world is waiting for him at the bottom of the garden this time. But when his best friend Cherry shows up with her little brother Brad in tow, he is not impressed. Everyone knows small children just cry and break other people's toys. What use is Brad going to be on an adventure?
But in a snowy Arctic world, where monsters lurk and giant footprints lead into the mountains, Algy discovers there might be more to Brad than meets the eye.
