Le vieux Bert, un chauffeur d'autobus grincheux, en a assez. Il est bien décidé à prendre sa retraite. Terminé, les arrêts d'autobus! Fini, les passagers! Il est prêt à accueillir à bras ouverts une existence paisible et rangée.

Sa vie prend un tout autre tournant lorsque, pendant sa ronde, il trouve dans sa poche un petit ange, Angélino. Sa femme insiste pour l'adopter et l'envoyer à l'école. Mais un ange, haut comme trois pommes qui plus est, attire l'attention.

Un magnifique roman qui n'est pas sans rappeler l'ambiance magique du conte de Pinocchio et des livres de Kate DiCamillo.

Grumpy old, bus-driving Bert has had enough. No more bus stops! No more passengers! But during his typical drive, Bert feels a flutter in his pocket, and out comes a small angel. So starts the tale of Angelino, a young boy (and angel) under the care of Bert and his wife Betty. At school, Angelino is the talk of all the students. What a wonder! But Mrs. Mole is not so sure. Nor is Professor Smellie. Or the mysterious man in black who claims to be a School Inspector. Then there's Basher Malone - big, lumbering Basher Malone. He really doesn't like Angelino. And it looks like he's out to get him...

A charming, captivating story that touches on friendship and family bonds, guaranteed to entertain!
