Angel on the Roof

By Shirley Hughes
Illustrated by Shirley Hughes

A timeless and heartwarming story about friendship and understanding by the Kate Greenaway-winning author of Dogger.

In this heart-warming Christmas story, by celebrated author Shirley Hughes, a young boy called Lewis Brown is looking out of a window and wishing that someone might notice him. Then he spots a single golden feather floating down from the heavens and discovers an angel on the roof. And so begins a great friendship, as the angel takes Lewis under his wing on an adventure that will change everything, and allow Lewis, his family and his friends, to start to see the world around them for the better.

  • A beautiful and inspiring story, published in time for Christmas, with a heartwarming message of hope and friendship.
