The Lovereading4Kids comment
How three unhappy kids at Nitshill School deal with Barry the bully is told quite brilliantly and with a great deal of humour too. A book not to be missed alongside some of her other titles for younger readers – Bill’s New frock, Ivan the Terrible, How to write really Badly, Saving Miss Mirabelle, The Chicken Gave it to me and Anneli the Art Hater. Many of Anne Fine’s books are ideal for reluctant readers as they tend to be quite short and also because of the great warmth and humour in her writing. Anne also writes for older readers, the most know of which is probably Madame Doubtfire. Click here to view other titles by Anne Fine.
The Angel of Nitshill Road by Anne Fine
This is a classic school story from one of our best-loved authors. 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.
; 'a lively fast read, entertaining but with food for thought
'Fine has a rare genius for building a funny, enriching and moving story around the nuts and bolts of school life'
* 'A remarkable writer
* 'Anne Fine is an author who knows how to make readers laugh
