What's Albie Newton About

Publisher Summary

Meet Albie Newton: child genius. But when this whiz of an inventor enters a new preschool, his perfect plan for making friends turns into a disaster: he steals the hamster’s wheel, snatches the wings off a toy airplane, and generally creates a giant mess. Now everyone’s angry! Will his new invention delight the other kids enough to make everything right–and win their friendship?

Trusted Reviews & Ratings

The Book Snob Mom
Mom of boys. Lover of Harry Potter, Jane Austen and believes one can never own too many children's books!
5.75 / 7.0

This has a lot of layers for a book about preschoolers… and I love it! The cadence is awesome (I’m a sucker for great rhyme), which makes this a fun read-aloud, and the illustrations have lots of little things going on, leaving new things to discover on multiple read-throughs—the children’s expressions are particularly interesting as you watch their different reactions to Albie’s behavior. This book manages to both be one that preschoolers can relate to and one that touches on more adult themes like genius level intelligence vs social intelligence.
