Reviews

"[...] an uplifting Christmas story brimming with hope." * The Bookseller, Children's Previews *
In this exquisitely illustrated story Hughes, 92, best known for Dogger and the Alfie stories, is not pushing godliness down little throats, but reminding us that kindness goes a long way. We need her gentle parables, generous nudges and spiritual reflection more than ever this season. * The Times *
A timeless story fit for the approaching season, and for these times. * The Sunday Times *
This is one of the most lovely books we've read in a long time. Shirley Hughes' trademark London is depicted perfectly. A reminder that small acts of kindness can travel a long way. Perfection. * Angels & Urchins *
It would not be Christmas without a new tale from 92-year-old Shirley Hughes... a story that is touching but never soppy, with even the most celestial scenes brought down to earth by Hughes's charmingly domestic illustrations. * The Daily Telegraph, Books of the Year - Children's & Stocking Fillers *
Angel on the Roof is a lovely Christmas book. * Spectator *
This is a magical book... This is the most amazingly poignant story, illustrated by Shirley Hughes's emotive images in blue and gold. A gift to treasure. * Juno *
Shirley Hughes' atmospheric new story about a deep and wonderful friendship is illustrated with verve and character in blue ink, adding her trademark warmth to a timeless story. * BookTrust *
A timeless Christmas story about friendship, understanding and seeing the world for the better. * Muddy Stilettos, The Best Kids Books of the Year *
There is something otherworldly and of another time to the simple blue illustrations on London rooftops and streets. And in the hands of master writer Hughes you'll find yourself welling up as the pages turn. This is the book to lift your Christmas. * The Big Issue, Books of the Year *
A timeless and touching tale, with gold endpapers and delicate line drawings. * Daily Express *
