Product description

Bert and Betty Brown have got themselves a little angel. Bert found him in his top pocket when he was driving his bus. Their friends think he’s lovely. So do Nancy, Jack and Alice from Class 5K. They say he’s a little wonder! But their school’s acting head teacher, Mrs Mole, isn’t so sure. Nor is Professor Smellie, or the mysterious bloke in black who claims to be a school inspector. Then there’s big, lumbering bully Basher Malone. He’s out to get Angelino. Being the new kid at school is no picnic. Being the new angel isn’t exactly heaven either…

  • A warm, witty fantasy by master writer David Almond
  • David’s books include Skellig, Clay and Kit’s Wilderness
  • He has won the Carnegie Medal and the Guardian Prize
  • With heartwarming line artwork by Alex T. Smith

“This is charming, profound and very funny, and Smith’s exuberant black-and-white illustrations are real humour.” The Bookseller

“Full of humour wisdom and fun… a gorgeous celebration of imagination, creativity and wonder.” The Week Junior
