The day Bert Brown finds that the fluttering in his chest isn't a heart attack but the wings of a small angel is the start of something wonderful. Bert and his wife, Nancy, take in Angelino, the angel, and Nancy enrolls him at the school where she works. Author David Almond's narration is the highlight of a story demonstrating that all people can grow and learn to love when they encounter a true and caring soul. Almond provides a variety of accents for the characters, who include villainous pupils and potentially dastardly teachers. In particular, he makes the most of Professor Smellie's lisp, a mannerism that perfectly offsets the teacher's grandiose claims. Almond's audiobook, which is reminiscent of Roald Dahl's works in tone, will appeal to children and families. E.J.F. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2018]
