About this book A warm and witty tale from a master storyteller, author of Carnegie Medal-winning Skellig and internationally bestseller The Boy Who Swam with Piranhas. Bert and Betty Brown have got themselves a little angel. Bert found him in his top pocket when he was driving his bus. Bert and Betty's friends think he's lovely. So do Nancy and Jack and Alice from Class 5K. What a wonder! But Acting Head Teacher Mrs Mole is not so sure. Nor is Professor Smellie. Or the mysterious bloke in black who claims to be a School Inspector. Then there's Basher Malone - big, lumbering Basher Malone. He REALLY doesn't like Angelino. And it looks like he's out to get him...
Reviews from Around the World
"Overall, this story was a joy to read. It’s based in Britain, so there may be some cultural elements or language that is unfamiliar to American readers, but I don’t think it’ll be a huge issue, because the humor and message is universal. I definitely recommend this for readers who need an uplifting story and love a bit of silliness in their books."Andrew - , Amazon
"The Tale of Angelino Brown at 288 pages long, is an older child/YA book. It is an imaginative, interesting read that covers lots of subjects. From bullying, friendship, to love and happiness.There are plenty of illustrations throughout, which heighten the interest to an already fabulous plot. The book is engaging, and attention grabbing. It has that old school feel to it, with goodies and baddies." - Whispering Stories Book Blog, Amazon
