    1. 4.5 Of course I am Professor Smellie I am a Professor at the Grand and Ancient University of Blithering on the Fen I have seven Honorary Doctorates and I am a Fellow of This will give you an idea of the tone of the book, something kids will get a kick out of reading Angelino is a tiny, pocket sized angel who farts Yes, farts That alone will get quite few giggles from young readers.He appears one day in the school bus driver s shirt pocket and is quickly adopted by him and his wife and the kids T [...]


    2. Grumpy bus driver Bert, thought he was having a heart attack when he felt something flutter in his chest It was not a heart attack he was having, it was a little angel who had found comfort in his shirt pocket.Bert took the angel home to his wife Betty Together they named him Angelino, and they looked after him like he was their son Betty decided that Angelino needed to go to school She took him to the local one, where she was a dinner lady The head teacher though, wasn t impressed with Angelino [...]


    3. I read this book in Dutch but will be writing my review in English.What would you do if you find a little angel in your breastpocket I was quite exciting to spot this book at my library, I just adore Alex T Smith s art, and one of David Almond s earlier books The Boy Who Swam With Piranhas, was terrific, so I wanted to see what would happen in this one Would he write yet another magical story How would the illustrations fit What would happen to the angel as there was lots of foreshadowing in the [...]


    4. 2018 CARNEGIE LONGLIST BOOK 6 20 The reason I am not rating this is because I don t think I could give it a fair rating.It is obviously for young children, and it very silly and nonsensical I m sure they would adore it it is cute and funny ish and easy to read Me Hey, I m not really that into books like this I would never have picked this up if it hadn t been on the Longlist I am reading But I think this book is good for the audience it is aimed at, and that is the main thing.So obviously this i [...]


    5. I received a copy of this title from Walker Books Australia for review.Ten Second Synopsis Bert the bus driver finds an angel in his shirt pocket and his life is turned upside down But although almost everyone seems to love having little Angelino around, is it really safe for an angel in a world of humans David Almond is one of those authors that many people categorise as an auto read that is, such is the strength of his previous work, any new work that is published will be snapped up immediatel [...]


    6. Unbelievably joyful, absurdly charming and intensely loveable I can think of quite a few people who s lives would be improved by the appearance of an angel in their pocket.Unexpected side effect I now have an intense craving for midget gems.



    7. Skellig through the eyes of Raymond Briggs, perhaps, as a curmudgeonly old bus driver finds a tiny wee angel in his shirt pocket Unfortunately he and his sweet wife are too open about its existence not content with telling friends, she parades it around the school where she works And someone is not quite open about snatching the angel, but he s there and he won t be dissuaded The problem with this book is that it doesn t know who its lead characters are Ethel and Ernest are either dominant or th [...]



    8. NicenessYou never quite know what you re going to get with David Almond, and I was a bit on edge when starting this book because I expected feared it might take a dark, or at least very sad, turn at some point Not to worry This is a subtle, kind, and exceptionally good humoured tale about the transformative power of innocence, and the worth of something as simple as niceness It has its darker moments, but only to allow contrast with the light.As the book opens, a tiny angel appears in Bert s poc [...]


    9.

    11. My name is Betty Brown, and while driving his school bus, my husband found a tiny angel in his pocket We re calling him Angelino, and he s brought so much joy to our family I took him to school with me, and the students and teachers all love him, except for Mrs Mole The other day, a school inspector came to our building and had Mrs Mole in a tizzy However, I recognized this person as Kevin Hawkins and realized he should still be in school Kevin was always a master of disguises, but he was easily [...]

    16. Charming book, reminded me of Roald Dahl s best works Petered out a bit at the end though, but highly recommended middle grade book




    17. Another fantastic offering from one of the present day greats David Almond, with brilliant illustrations by the epically talented Alex T Smith.Honestly, I can t get enough of David Almond He takes huge topics and manages to create beautiful and accessible stories around these difficult subjects Whilst Angelino Brown works well for independent readers, it is a perfect read aloud book for a classroom setting.This Pinoccio esqu story has a sense of lightness and of hope beyond any of Almond s body [...]


    18. When Bus driver Bert found a little angel in his top pocket, he took him home to his wife Betty Betty took him to school and all was going well until Angelino met Bully Basher Malone A sweet, heartwarming character and story.
