The Tale of Angelino Brown

£6.99

David Almond’s writing is authentic. HIs Northumbrian voice can be heard as you read, urging you to take on his unique and wonderful creations, such as Angelino, whom grumpy bus driver Bert Brown finds in his jacket pocket toward the end of a route one fractious day.

This angel is in no way typical; although he flies, he ‘lets them fly’. He has a penchant for midget gems and jelly, but turns his nose up at fried egg. Bert and Betty, who yearn for the bright possibilities that their long past courting days offered, are renewed by Angelino. He in turn, spreads his magic throughout their neighbourhood, from school, church, bus passengers…. to attracting lurking, sneaking dangers.

‘The Tale of Angelino Brown‘ is exhilarating reading, that makes me laugh, and believe in the impossible. As ever with David Almond’s works, it cannot be pigeon holed into an ‘age category.’ Alex T. Smith’s punchy, positive illustrations fit the tone and story superbly. A huge bus wheeled size stamp of approval from Bookwagon for ‘The Tale of Angelino Brown.’
