The Lovereading4Kids comment

Three entertaining stories about Angela Nicely, a little girl who is not at all what you’d expect from her name! First she gets into all kinds of trouble trying to prove that the head teacher is wearing a wig, then she tries to upstage her friend Tiffany when she is chosen to model clothes in a catalogue. Finally, Angela runs amok at a health spa.


Angela Nicely Is the Best by Alan MacDonald

From the world of Dirty Bertie comes a new star! A brand new series from David Roberts, creator of Dirty Bertie, Angela Nicely is already well known to Bertie's fans. Angela might look like she’s made of sugar and spice and all things nice, but nothing could be further from the truth!

Angela knows best!

Whether it’s trying to succeed as a top model, proving that her head teacher wears a
wig, or finding herself out of her depth on a spa weekend, she’s determined to make a splash! Angela Nicely is the first book in this fantastically mischievous series. Perfect for little girls who are fans of Dirty Bertie.

About the Author

Alan MacDonald

Alan was born in Watford and went to university in Bangor, North Wales, where he studied English and Drama. He started working life in a travelling theatre company, visiting schools all over the country & writing much of their material. He says it was a useful apprenticeship - if the audience didn't like the play, they talked through it or threw bits of paper at the actors. He very quickly learned what children liked.

A keen football fan, Alan has supported Watford FC since childhood. Many of his stories have a football focus - which he rates as the next best thing to playing for England! He dreamed of becoming a professional footballer, but when he won a pen in a writing competition, his fate was sealed.

Alan has written over eighty children's books, which have been translated into many languages and won several awards. In 2010, Dirty Bertie: Loo! was winner of the Leicestershire Children's Book Prize. Alan also writes for TV, including the hugely popular 'Horrid Henry' on CITV.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
