Meet Bert.
Say hallo to Bert.

Bert is a friendly chap who has many strange and exciting adventures. For instance, one morning as he struggles to put on a shirt, Bert falls down the stairs, out the door, and into the back of a truck, which takes him on an unplanned journey to Scotland.

Another time, Bert is chased down the street by a giant sausage.

Not to worry! Plucky, enthusiastic Bert always rises to the occasion, in this high-spirited collaboration between an internationally acclaimed author and illustrator, who are working together for the first time.

Praise For The Adventures of Bert

"With such a sense of fun, so casual and hectoring a treatment of the reader, and such cleanliness of illustration and layout, one can only say, 'Thanks Bert'."--Starred, The Horn Book
