A beautifully illustrated Christmas story from one of the world's most loved writers. In 'Angela and the Baby Jesus', McCourt revisits his mother's childhood. Set in Limerick at the turn of the century, 'Angela and the Baby Jesus' is the story of the Christmas when Angela was six and concerned about the baby Jesus on the altar of St. Joseph's Church near School House Lane where her family lived. The story is written in the voice in which Frank McCourt's told his internationally bestselling and award winning 'Angela's Ashes'. The story is illustrated by Loren Long. Like Dylan Thomas' 'A Child's Christmas in Wales', it is for readers of all ages.
