9780001983168: Birdie Halleluyah!

Birdie Halleluyah is a real guardian angel, but a slightly unorthodox one!

Every child likes to imagine that they have an invisible friend and the little boy in this book is no exception. With his guardian angel to watch over him, he feels safe whether he’s crossing a busy road, or it’s dark late at night. Even if it seems that his mind is not always on the job, Birdie Halleluyah is always there when it matters.

This charming story of a boy and his secret friend will be recognised and loved by any child who takes comfort in the thought of someone special watching out for them.

Review:

Birdie is the guardian angel, secret friend and conscience of a young boy who loves football. When on duty, Birdie is so often distracted by his own innocent pleasures that small incidents mount up like the sticking plasters on the boy’s body, but Birdie swoops to the rescue when the child’s obsession with his football leads him into real danger.
The artwork is beautiful, achieved with such modest means: pencils, crayons, sepia ink, and finest liquid gold pen line. The image of the guardian angel is one of ethereal solidity: immense hands and feet, skin pale as marble, seraphic smile, long fair hair. In Birdie Halleluyah the words provide a simple framework upon which the story grows through the images. (TES – 30/10/98)

From the Back Cover:

A Guardian Angel’s work is very important, Birdie Halleluyah is the name a little boy gives to his angel and Birdie looks after him. But sometimes his mind is not really on the job…

This charming story of a boy and his secret friend will be recognised and loved by any child who takes comfort in the thought of someone special watching out for them.
