9780007271825: Angela and the Baby Jesus

An evocative Christmas story, from the Pulitzer prize-winning author of the phenomenally best-selling memoir, Angela’s Ashes.

This wonderful Christmas story is based on an incident from the childhood of Frank McCourt’s mother, Angela.

When six-year-old Angela sees the Baby Jesus in the Christmas crib at the church near her house, she feels very sorry for him. He looks happy enough but she wonders why he has no blanket to keep him warm. So Angela decides to take the Baby home with her, when no one is looking, and make him more comfortable.

But hiding the Baby Jesus isn’t easy. How long can Angela keep her big secret?

Review:

‘Based on a true incident…this beautifully illustrated story needs to be read aloud, preferably with an Irish accent.’ The Bookseller

‘A heart-warming Christmas tale’ The Observer

Praise for ‘Angela’s Ashes’:

'An astonishing book… completely mesmerising – you can open it almost at random and find writing to make you gasp.'
Independent

'The most remarkable thing about Frank McCourt, apart from his survival, is his lack of sorrowfulness. Angela's Ashes sings with irreverent Limerick wit. It makes you smile at the triumph of the storyteller, a tougher specimen who escaped Limerick's teeming alleys through intelligence and cunning and lived to tell the tale.' The Times

About the Author:

His sequel to Angela’s Ashes, ‘Tis, continued its predecessor’s huge success, as did Teacher Man, his memoir about being a New York high school teacher. He lives with his wife in New York.
