A classic children's book from one of best-loved Bill's New Frock authors, former Children's Laureate Anne Fine. Perfect for readers aged between 7 and 9 and fans of Awful Auntie and Pamela Butchart's Wigglesbottom Primary series.
Until the angel came, Penny, Mark and Marigold were bitterly unhappy. `Fat.' `Freak.' `Smelly.' Barry Hunter was bullying them and everyone at Nitshill Road School knew it. But the angel brings a clever solution. Life at school is going to be very different from now on.
Anne Fine's fun school stories have been delighting children for more than 20 years, winning her awards such as the Smarties Book Award and Carnegie Medal along the way.
Anne Fine is one of the UK's best-loved authors. She was the Children's Laureate from 2001-2003 and has won both the Carnegie Medal and the Whitbread Award twice. She has published over 50 books for children, including favourites such as Ivan the Terrible and The Angel of Nitshill Road. When she was young, it never occurred to Anne that she might be a writer. But one day, unable to get to the library in a snowstorm, she sat down and started to write a novel. Clearly this was the right job for her, for she has never stopped writing for more than a few weeks since.
