Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
A well written and entertaining book. All my grandchildren loved it and I could hear them laughing at times, they ask for more books about Angela Nicely. My 7 year old grandson & 8 year old granddaughter was hooked from the first page. Angela Nicely is a mischievous little girl that goes from one antic to another but is funny as well. They reread this book numerous times while nagging at me to buy more.
One granddaughter is not an avid reader so we tried here with this book and she loved it, made me smile when she read the complete book and ask for more, now that shows to me it is worth getting more from this series.

I think it helps that there is 3 mini stories and not a full story in one book, it seems to keep the children more entertained that way.

Those of you (or their children) who have not read any of the “Dirty Bertie” stories (of which this book is a spin-off) need not worry, because enjoying “Angela Nicely” requires no knowledge of that other series.

Those of you who are fans of Dirty Bertie need not worry either – despite the deceptive pink sweetness of this book's front cover. There is still plenty of muck and smelliness to be amused by, as Angela has a mishap near Mr Grouch the caretaker's compost heap, gets covered in messy chocolate, and falls with a squelch into a muddy puddle. Bertie himself makes a brief cameo appearance, characteristically picking his nose.

Angela Nicely is not as prim and proper as her name suggests. Far from it – that's more the style of the stuck-up Tiffany Charmers, who is in the same class as Angela and Bertie. Angela likes nothing better than going on adventures, getting into mischief, carrying out investigations (such as finding out whether the Head Teacher's new hair is a wig) and eating chocolate fudge bars (there's a delightful image of her doing just that on page 68).

There are black and white illustrations by David Roberts on most pages. I was particularly amused by the fact that the big bow in Angela's hair never, ever leaves the girl's head. Even when she goes swimming, you can see the shape of it under her swimming cap!

The final story is the weakest of the three in this book, not really coming to much of a conclusion. However, that's my only real criticism of this nicely done book.

Angela Nicely by David Roberts

What is it?
'Angela Nicely' is the first book in a brand new series for young children, written by the author of the 'Dirty Bertie' series Alan Macdonald and illustrated by David Roberts.

This 96 page paperback contains three extremely humorous stories.

What's it about?
Angela Nicely has already appeared in the Dirty Bertie books and in fact you will also find that Dirty Bertie appears occasionally in this book.

Angela Nicely (contrary to her name) is very naughty, she goes to the same school as Dirty Bertie and gets up to all sorts of mischief.

Who's it for?
Angela Nicely is great for children aged between 6 and 10. My daughter is 8 and she thoroughly enjoyed reading this book herself. Parents would also enjoy reading this book to younger children as it's very, very funny.

What's good about it?
The front cover is a colourful 'pink', with a cute drawing of Angela Nicely in a pink dress and pink bow in her hair.
The black and white illustrations are absolutely fantastic and the stories are side splittingly funny.
There are another two (so far) equally appealing books in the series. Queen Bee and Superstar.
Each story is just long enough to keep the interest of a young child but not too short so as to be lacking in substance.

What's bad about it?
I cannot actually think of anything bad.

In summing up
A gloriously humorous new series for any child to enjoy, with equally fun drawings to match.

A must for your child's library.

Format: Paperback Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I read this book with my 7-year-old daughter over three bedtimes.

The book includes three separate Angela Nicely stories, each four short chapters in length.

Angela Nicely is a girl dressed in a pink dress and a massive pink bow upon her head. She has the look of an innocent little girl, like butter wouldn’t melt in her mouth. But really she is a mischief maker. Sometimes this lands her in trouble, and at other times it works out well for her.

The three stories in the book are:

* Miss Skinner’s Wig!
* Supermodel!
* Healthy Holiday!

The first story sees Angela transfixed by the head teacher Miss Skinner’s new hairstyle. She is sure it is a wig. “Prove it” says her friend Maisie. “Maisie always thought she knew best, but this time Angela would prove her wrong.” And so Angela goes about making mischief, with a little help from a Super Suction Arm.

The second story sees Angela trying to become a model ahead of “goody-goody Tiffany.” Again Angela makes mischief to try and ruin Tiffany’s photoshoot, except things don’t go to plan, although Angela does get her wish at the end.

And the third story sees Angela being honest with her mum (“you’re not fat, just a bit squidgy”), but still getting told off for it. This leads to the two of them going on a healthy holiday (“Are you flabby? Saggy? Baggy as an elephant’s bottom?” reads the promotional material for the health place) where Angela thinks she’ll be able to use the swimming pool all day. Except it isn’t like that, with things not being to Angela’s liking. Again Angela gets her own back at the end.

So you get three self-contained stories, in an easy-to-read format that suits the 7-year-old reading level. There are black-and-white pictures along the way too and the stories all have satisfying conclusions to them. It is worth getting. My daughter said it was good and fun and she liked it how sometimes Angela got it wrong.
