«adorable...Each splendidly grandiose secret identity is brought to life by entrancing colourful illustrations.»


«Albert Talbot: Master of Disguise is a book that children will surely adore and maybe even inspire their own make-believe play. I love how it encourages children to tap into their creativity and imagination. But ultimately, this book shows us that being ourselves is wonderful too.»

«Enjoy a brilliantly conceived picture book story of imagination and adventure from Ben Manley, acclaimed author of The Misadventures of Frederick, and super-talented French illustrator Aurélie Guillerey… Guillerey brings all Albert’s perilous missions to life with her gallery of bold and colourful illustrations, perfectly matched to a funny, reflective story full of the inspirational joys of being whoever you want to be… and the comfort of sometimes just being you!»

, Lancashire Evening Post

«This is a fun book to read aloud, and the lively illustrations and bold use of color are all a joy. Full marks to all concerned for addressing diversity issues in the inclusion of different ethnicities and for the simple but effective decision to represent a black child having a white mother. It's a simple thing, but, importantly, it is inclusive and reflects children's lives and their place in society. Two Hoots are building a strong list with some talented writers and illustrators coming through»
