Albert Sandy is a kid and minor character that goes to Greg Heffley's school. He always thinks crazy or absurd thoughts about things that don't happen in real life. Most people don't take him seriously, as his claims are usually lies; Greg believes him, however, when he talks about a man from Thailand or China who could jump really high by digging a hole in the ground, then jumping in and out of it. He later reappeared in The Ugly Truth, spouting more lies to kids. In the Lock-In, he said that he watched a movie where a man got out of prison by digging his way out with a kitchen utensil (spoon) Desperate to escape the Lock-In, the kids tried that, but ultimately failed. Greg notes that Albert was once again lying, and that his claim was just a whole bunch of "Hollywood baloney." In the health class, Greg wants to go because his source of information was Albert. He is seen again Old School at Hardscrabble Farms, telling everyone that Silas Scratch had a network of underground tunnels beneath the cabins at the farm, that's how he was able to move around so quickly and he also haunts the bathroom as well, although the information was false and he possibly made that up. So thanks to him, the kids are too scared to use the bathroom because of Silas Scratch.
In the online book, he said that his parents got a 32 inch big T.V. for his room and many other things.
