The Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Angela's Ashes presents this gentle, subtle Christmas tale for all ages, beautifully pictured in Raul Colon's finely textured watercolors. Set in Limerick a century ago, it tells how six-year-old Angela fears that the figure of Baby Jesus at St. Joseph's Church will be cold lying in the manger all night, and so takes him home and puts him in her own bed. After her brother Patrick discovers the theft, the family returns the Baby Jesus to the church, and finds the priest and a policeman waiting to arrest the guilty party. But Patrick speaks up, willing to take his sister's punishment for her. This tale for all ages was originally published in 2007 as Angela and the Baby Jesus.
