An exuberant and artistic all-new adventure from the brilliant Quentin Blake.

Corky and Loopy are two perfectly normal girls. They like chocolate biscuits, fizzy drinks, screaming at each other and drawing. But they are also a little bit special... because they are angels. One day they visit Sid, a pavement artist. Sid is sad because he wants to take part in the big drawing competition but can't work out how the judges will ever get to see his work. Corky and Loopy decide to help and give him a very special pencil from their collection. So begins a bright and colourful adventure from the brilliant Quentin Blake.

South Wales Argus

A bright and colourful adventure.

Mumszone

What makes it appealing is firstly Blake's sparse and quirky writing style and secondly his, as always, wonderful illustrations.

Inis magazine

Sid Bunkin makes a nice Blake alter ego and there is a good deal of everyday delight.
