'People are strange! The things they are doing and saying - sometimes they make no sense. Did their brains fall out of their heads?' Angel, not fond of people at the best of times and having an identity crisis, is about to meet Zola - a talkative young girl who makes herself at home in Angel's tower in a village high in the Swiss Alps.

Some books are absolute magic, and this is one of them...it deserves to be read out loud and more than once to truly enjoy the angel's hilarious malapropisms and outright invented words, and to appreciate the book's tender, comical celebration of the human spirit. (School Library Journal)
(An) endearing contemporary fable... Full of mixed appreciation for and apprehension about human beings, it is
filled with phonemic mix-ups, word coinage, inverted grammar and nonsense that soars and fizzes... Brimful of grace and cheer; moving, funny and sweet - and begging to be read aloud.(Kirkus, Starred Review)
An endearingly funny and life-affirming tale of an explosive collision between an insecure angel and a feisty young girl, from this multi-award winning author.
