Summary

A little angel is taken in by a couple when the husband finds him in his shirt pocket, but they must deal with bullies, devious criminals and order-obsessed school teachers.

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.

NOTE: Carnegie longlist 2018

Book of the week

Charming, slightly surreal, very satisfying story, with delightful illustrations. Magical realism approach may not appeal to all, but it's a lovely tale for imaginative readers.
