Albert Sandy is a kid and minor character that goes to Greg's school. He always shares crazy and absurd thoughts about things that don't happen in real life. Most people don't take him seriously, as his claims are usually lies.
Role in the series
Albert says that his parents got a 32-inch TV for his room, among many other things.
During the Lock-In, Albert says that he watched a movie where a man escaped prison by digging his way out with a spoon. Desperate to escape the Lock-In, the students try that, but ultimately fail. Greg notes that Albert is once again lying, and that his claim is just a whole bunch of "Hollywood baloney." Later, Greg wants to go to Health class because his source of information is Albert.
Albert is seen at Hardscrabble Farms, telling everyone that Silas Scratch has a network of underground tunnels beneath the cabins at the farm, and that's how he is able to move around so quickly. Albert says that Silas Scratch haunts the bathroom as well. This scares the kids and makes them avoid using the bathroom.
Albert talks about an old billionaire who freezes himself to see what life is like in a hundred years. Later, he tells Greg and Rowley that human beings only use 80% of their brains.
On a cold day, Albert tells kids that their spit will freeze before it hits the ground. Later, he tells about a man who held in his sneeze and blew his head off, who now works at the local Shop-n-Dash. He also says that when someone's pet dies in the winter, they have to wait until the ground thaws in the spring before it can be buried. People in Greg's town use the school cafeteria's walk-in freezer to store their pets for the winter. Greg also mentions that Albert told a story about what happened to a guy who peed in the cold.
