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…
"Almond’s dry wit will bring smiles, and his underlying message about good and evil may shake up some preconceived notions."
The Tale of Angelino Brown is illustrated by Alex T. Smith. It was nominated for both the Carnegie and the Kate Greenaway medal for 2018.
It is published by Walker Books.
