by Ben Manley
Books > Children's Staff Picks
A story of imagination and adventure from the acclaimed author ofThe Misadventures of Frederick, Ben Manley, and Daddy Long Legsillustrator Aurelie Guillerey.
Who will Albert be next? A fearless mountaineer, a brilliant mechanical engineer or a galactic megalord? Anything is possible with an imagination like Albert’s as he powers through his day.
As a boy, Albert is nervous in a swimming lesson, but as Zandrian Delaclair, Antarctic Submariner and slayer of vampire cuttlefish, he’s as brave and bold as can be. Show and Tell in front of the whole class can be a bit scary, but by imagining himself to be Professor Octavius Pickleswick he’s proud to show off his greatest invention yet.
A brilliantly funny story, full of exciting things to look at, about the joys of being whoever you want to be . . . and the comfort of sometimes just being yourself.
