The twins are in bed when it happens.

They hear a sound like a wet cabbage hitting the wall, then a clattering on the roof tiles, followed a little later by a tapping at the window. It’s a girl with a broken wing – and she’s come to stay. Who is she? Where has she come from? And more importantly, what does she want? The twins have no idea. Perhaps she’s their guardian angel? But would an angel have filthy feet and snore? 

A delightful angel-with-attitude story for ages 7+

Re-Issue of Heather Dyer's 2006 classic.

'Dyer writes in accessible, rhythmic language, and the story is perfect to read aloud.'
Child Education
'The combination of Dyer's enchanting tale and Peter Bailey's delightful illustrations is irresistible.'
' ... this has been a particularly good year in which the best of the bunch is The Girl with the Broken Wing by Heather Dyer.'
Daily Mail
Richard and Judy's Best Children’s Books Ever selection 2007
'A substantial story but easy to read and full of fun.'

"Out of all the characters in my books, the one I'd most like to be is Hilary. Who wouldn't want to be able to fly? Also, she always seems happy and never cares what people think of her - most admirable."
