The narrator of Measuring Angels hates school. It gets even worse when Sophie, a bully and a gossip, becomes her partner for a new science project: to make a sunflower grow. When Sophie snatches the seed and shoves it into the ground, the two girls argue and the little plant does not thrive. "That sunflower is not happy," says the teacher. So the two girls decide to make a cardboard angel to watch over the plant and help it grow. Will the angel also help them understand and like each other? Lesley Ely’s persuasive narrative and Polly Dunbar’s beautiful artwork bring this timely tale to life.
