Christmas Reading…

Algy-reading-Midwinter-Star-to-teddy-for-011217.jpg

It was the first day of December, and the hours of daylight had grown very short indeed. Each new day dawned more slowly and reluctantly than the previous one now, but as soon as there was sufficient light Algy found himself a comfortable perch in a pine tree and settled down to read his very own Christmas-time story The Magical Midwinter Star to his little black teddy. The tiny bear was thrilled to hear the tale of Algy’s adventures through the harsh midwinter landscape of the West Highlands of Scotland, and he wondered whether Algy would indeed succeed in restoring the ancient tradition of a great midwinter celebration for all the creatures of the area, to bright light and joy back to the dismal depths of the dark and gloomy Scottish winter…

This third story in the series Tales from the Adventures of Algy makes perfect reading for the weeks leading up to Christmas – for children aged 7 to 10 and adults still young at heart. You can buy copies of The Magical Midwinter Star signed by Algy himself, direct from Algy’s own web shop, and add personal dedications in your own words. With FREE UK DELIVERY from now until Hogmanay.

Visit Algy’s own online bookshop to buy The Magical Midwinter Star and Algy’s other books – unique gifts and stocking fillers from the wild West Highlands of Scotland 🙂

Some of Algy’s kind Tumblr friends have expressed concern for his welfare in the horrible January weather experienced in the West Highlands of Scotland, and his friend @skyoverhamburg suggested a fluffy scarf, so Algy wanted to reassure his friends that he does indeed have a fine wee bonnet and shawl to wear when necessary, as modelled here by Algy himself for an illustration in his latest book The Magical Midwinter Star. And when the weather gets really nasty, Algy sneaks into his assistant’s house and snuggles up on the sofa with his fluffy friends 🙂

Algy hopes that all his friends will keep warm and well in the northern winter, and sends you all extra fluffy hugs to help warm you up xoxo
