Angelina is Manolos twin sister. The quieter of the two, she is described as Manolo's shadow. She is also Dolita's best friend and an eager listener to her stories as she recites her dreams and visions. Angelina is very homely and searches the rubbish dump regularly for interesting things to decorate the shelter.
"Angelina, who had listened to some of the discussion about the butterflies, was now more than anxious to introduce Alejandro to her little friend. He was not in a glass case! He was not dead! She very proudly produced her purple satin handbag and he was very much alive. The little mouse who was now regaining his strength and whose wounds seemed to be healing naturally had become very precious to her."
