The Adventures of Bert by Allan Ahlberg



Allan Ahlberg, one of the most acclaimed and successful authors of children's books - including the best-selling Jolly Postman series - says that he dreamed of becoming a writer since the age of twelve. But his route to that goal was somewhat circuitous. Other jobs along the way included postman (not an especially jolly one, he recalls), gravedigger, plumber, and teacher

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.

by Allan Ahlberg & illustrated by Raymond Briggs. Top-drawer, absurd entertainment from two English masters of the droll. Bert is a victim-of the fates, of misunderstandings, of his two left feet-but he is also an agent of good, a man of pluck, ever an optimist. Bert’s a force, no matter how ridiculous  . He could-believe it-be a savior of a sort. Bring us more Bert, please.

When our daughter was in preschool, this book cracked her up...and us, too. Now, a few years later, our son is in preschool and he loves this book: fast action, short chapters, lots of humor and just a bit of tension (what is in the box in the river??? why is a sausage chasing Bert???). Definitely a favorite, and in my mom-reading-the-same-books-over-and-over-again experience, it won't drive you crazy and it's even better for boys than girls. Why Allan Ahlberg isn't famous and all his books aren't bestsellers for children, I do not understand.

The condition of this book was really poor. Very dirty to the point my young son didn't want to read it. Not the condition I'd expected.

This is the first collaboration for these two author/illustrators, and a fine one it is. Bert is a solid, silly fellow, who along with his wife, likes to drink his tea in bed. Five short segments introduce the reader to Bert, his wife and baby, and show him in some silly adventures, such as winding up in Scotland, because he couldn't get his shirt over his big head properly, running away from a giant sausage (a costumed vendor), and rescuing a puppy from drowning. The funniest bits are at the beginning and end, when the reader is instructed to turn the page very carefully so as not to disturb the baby, but of course that is impossible! Easy to read large print and very short "chapters" will make this a fun book for beginning readers, and the bright, humorous illustrations will make it a fun read-aloud for preschool or kindergarten storytime.

I bought this book because I am a fan of Raymond Briggs, but I found it very disappointing. There are 5 short chapters in this book. The first and the last are almost identical (saying hello and goodnight to the Bert family in bed) and the middle 3 are very brief, poorly developed and lack a meaningful storyline. There seems to be no relationship or flow between the chapters either - it's just a jumbled mishmash. In Chapter 2, Bert buys a new shirt, and when it gets stuck on his head, he rolls out on the street and ends up in a lorry on his way to Scotland. And there the "story" ends - it just doesn't go anywhere. In Chapter 3, he is frightened by a man in sausage suit, in Chapter 4 he rescues a puppy from the river. The illustrations are quite charming, but the text is uninvolving. My 19 month old son really enjoys reading books (like Goodnight Moon, The Very Hungry Caterpillar and We're Going on a Bear Hunt) but shows minimal interest in this one.

Because I'm a huge Ahlberg fan, I hate to say this, but what was he thinking with this one? It's so odd that it's fun to read because the kids laugh. I mean really, "One day Bert has an adventure with a shirt...." and then something about how he can't get it over his head, falls down a flight of stairs and "winds up in Scotland." It gets confusing there, because then he has "an adventure with a sausage".! NONE of this book makes any sense, there's no story really, its just odd things happening to an odd person named Bert. But hey, It's not like we don't; read it! And thats the point. Oh and also, in the beginning of the book Bert has a baby (Baby Bert) that you're supposed to not wake up when you turn the page. Strange book!
I was surprised that this book had so few words in it - maybe that's what makes it so popular with my 3 year old and 20 month old! (Me, too!) The pictures are lively, Bert is built like a sausage with legs and red hair, and is as unthreatening and jolly a protagonist I've seen in children's books. The kids love having to say "Hallo" , then "Good night" to Bert and Mrs. Bert - and the beginning and end, when they are instructed to turn thepage very, very quietly, so as not to wake baby Bert - then find baby Bert yelling "Waaaaaa" on the next page - "Now look what you've done!" - hysterical every time. They start snorting and chuckling before I've even turned the page. This book is a surprise favorite. I'm very glad I bought it as I was disappointed at first it was so short - it's silly, happy, and delightful and I would advise anyone who has a 1 - 4 year old to buy it.
