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.
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.
In the first story, "Miss Skinner's Wig!" Angela is convinced that her Head Teacher is wearing a wig, but her friends don't believe her. Angela attempts to prove it, with disastrous results. In "Supermodel!", Tiffany (top of the class and teacher's pet) is going for an audition to model for a catalogue. Angela decides to attend the casting too and see if she can get chosen instead. In the last story, "Healthy Holiday!" Angela accompanies her mother on a spa break.
This is a totally stand alone book and your child will not have to be familiar with any of the characters in the Dirty Bertie books to read, and enjoy, them. With the pink cover, the book is obviously targeted more at girls and my daughter enjoyed reading it. I would say it is good to read independently for the approx 6-8 year old age group.
The three stories are entertaining, and could be read independently by children aged around seven. Alternatively, reading one of the stories aloud would take around twenty minutes, so it would make a good bedtime book for younger children. It's clearly targeted at girls.
The black and white illustrations are fun, and there are amusing details both in the text and the pictures. I didn't find Angela a particularly likable character myself - and she's definitely not a good role model! - but children will enjoy her exploits!
`Super model`where Teachers pet wants to be a super model, and `Healthy Holiday where Angelina goes on a spar break with her mom. All stories are very comical and thoroughly enjoyed.
