Waterstones Says

The kind of magical Christmas story that you thought they didn’t write any more, Angel on the Roof is another instant classic from the peerless pen of the great Shirley Hughes. Blessed with the distinctive illustrations that only Hughes can produce, this heart-warming tale of friendship and adventure makes the perfect festive gift for young and old alike.

A timeless story about friendship and understanding by the Kate Greenaway-winning author of Dogger.

In this heartwarming Christmas story, by celebrated author Shirley Hughes, a young boy called Lewis Brown is looking out of a window and wishing that someone might notice him. Then he spots a single golden feather floating down from the heavens and discovers an angel on the roof.

And so begins a great friendship, as the angel takes Lewis under his wing on an adventure that will change everything, and allow Lewis, his family and his friends, to start to see the world around them for the better.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'In this exquisitely illustrated story Hughes, 92, best known for Dogger and the Alfie stories, is not pushing godliness down little throats, but reminding us that kindness goes a long way. We need her gentle parables, generous nudges and spiritual reflection more than ever this season.' - The Times 

'A timeless story fit for the approaching season, and for these times.' - The Sunday Times
