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...

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Almond's books for younger readers are always a treat [...] This is charming, profound and very funny, and Smith's exuberant black-and-white illustrations are real humour." * The Bookseller *
"Award-winning David Almond's new story for younger reader is a delightfully lightly told, warm-hearted story perfect for all those who are willing believe in a little bit of something special. [...] David Almond inspires readers' imagination and raises questions about definitions of good and bad. It is a wonderful book." - * Julia Eccleshare, LoveReading *
[...] this is a charmingly goofy story [...] For all its superficial puerility, The Tale of Angelino Brown returns, like Almond's other novels, to death: this is a poignant book about grief. [...] grown up readers will be touched by it, too. * The Daily Telegraph *
"As ever, there is joy to be had in Almond's ear for the beauty and rhythm of everyday speech, and Alex T Smith's illustrations are cheeky and apt." * The Literary Review *
"This lovely, heart-warming story from award-winning author, David Almond is full of humour wisdom and fun. With fantastic illustrations by Alex T. Smith, it's a gorgeous celebration of imagination, creativity and wonder that will leave you with a huge smile on your face." * The Week Junior, Children's Book of the Week *
