    Gr. 4-7. At first, life is exceedingly dreary for Henry. An orphan, he lives with a joyless, miserly aunt who runs a rooming house peopled by resigned, unhappy eccentrics. But when the exuberant Harvey Angell joins the group, the house fills with music and energy of an unusual kind. As Henry unravels the mystery of why Mr. Angell has appeared and what he does on his nighttime adventures, Henry learns secrets about his own family and rejoices as Angell's magic transforms the cold house into a warm home. Part fantasy, part farce, this British import is filled with over-the-top characters, slapstick humor, and details that are both nostalgic and timeless. Young readers may get lost in some of the more esoteric passages about Mr. Angell's "energy research," but this cheerful read touches on profound ideas about finding happiness as it offers a sort of cosmic, New Age alternative for children anxiously awaiting the next Harry Potter.
