Albert's Play

with audio recording

Illustrated by Leslie Tryon

In this companion to Albert's Alphabet, Albert is back at Pleasant Valley School, and this time he’s taking the stage!

Come one, come all, as resourceful Albert—who built an entire alphabet for the school's playground in Albert's Alphabet—moves inside to help the children of Pleasant Valley School put on this year's play: The Owl and the Pussy-cat. From auditions, to costuming and set building, to the nerves of opening night, Albert brings young readers along as he prepares the little animals for their big stage debut and then gives them a front row seat to the big show!

“Any school would be fortunate to have the unflappable Albert—and every child should have a chance to meet him.” —Kirkus Reviews
