The grown ups are up in arms and all want to flee their hovels straight away. But Sedric can’t risk having to stay with his smelly Uncle Bile and not being able to hang out with friends every day so it’s up to the gang to solve the mystery of the invasion of the hairy troll before it’s too late!

Angie uses a variety of media in her work – pastels and charcoal, Photoshop, scanned ephemera and watercolour. She draws on her large collection of old letters, tins, fabrics, books and other bits and pieces inherited from her mother, to whom she's grateful for her hoarding instinct, which has left her with such a library of treasures to work with.
Her inspiration comes from her 3 children and from the children at her local primary school, where she offers Maths and Literacy support.
