Meet Albie – a small boy in a weird, wild world. Albie is a six year old boy whose imagination turns his surroundings into wild fantasy and he sees peculiar creatures everywhere. Why does no one else notice them? It’s a mystery to Albie.
It seems like just another ordinary day to Albie until he finds… a hippo in the paddling pool, zebras up the tree and his sister, Mary, on the warpath!
What else could possibly go wrong?

Critic’s praise for tv series at British Animation Awards:
"…an original, witty and charming route into a child's imagination"
If anyone that has met me notices a resemblance to Albie, then it's hardly surprising; Albie is me when I was six! My grandfather was an explorer in Africa in the 1920's, and all I knew of him was his photographs of elephants and water buffalo. Not quite grasping the 'Africa' bit, and presuming that all these animals were his pals, I went about trying to find zebras (even the tree climbing kind!) in my back garden. And I found them too, but no one believed me. So this is my account of what happened, with my name changed to Albie just so I don't seem so bonkers! I hope you enjoy the book.
