Editorial Reviews

Review

‘An intriguing and singular depiction of angels neatly wrapped up in a brief, captivating coming-of-age tale.’
Kirkus Reviews

‘It’s about magical discoveries, secrets from family and the awareness that growing up is just around the corner.…Angel Creek is an imaginative and assured move into writing for older children by Sally Rippin.’
Buzz Words

Angel Creek is a really beautiful exploration of a time of change for a young person… Exquisitely written, and exploring the loss of innocence, kindness, kinship and a certain kind of faith, this book is fantastical (but not fantasy, it’s firmly rooted in reality), effortlessly metaphorical and a little bit magic.’
Bean There Read That

‘This story flows effortlessly between the supernatural and the everyday goingson in Jelly’s life. Beyond its mystical elements, it touches on many issues relevant to children, such as relationships with grandparents, bullying and the transition to high school. It is an exciting, scary and wondrous story.’
Herald Sun

Angel Creek is a delightful little read, perfect for a dreamy day down by the creek.’
Of ceiling wax and cabbages

‘With a compelling mixture of reality and fantasy, Angel Creek was such a fascinating story that I read it in one sitting. Rippin’s picture of family life was one that rang true…. Rippin’s story has a unique take on angels and their origins and this story of a baby creek angel is fascinating and original.'

Format: Paperback
Sally Rippins newest novel is touching, mysterious, on the edge of eerie, and sure to entertain young readers. Jelly has just moved with her parents to a new house in the suburb. The only thing she likes about her new home is the old apricot tree and the wild creek behind her house. But there's something scary in the creek, and Jelly can't figure out what it is until she gets a close up look at what couldn't possibly be an injured, baby angel, but is. Jelly soon discovers that keeping something trapped inside only brings about misery to her entire household.

This novel is full of deep emotion, mystery, and a captivating drama.

I love how it has something to do with god. It is a teensy bit disguting and the best book. It has a creature, a moral, a challenge and good charectera. by grace 8.
