An Angel Just Like Me
by Mary Hoffman
illustrated by Cornelius Van Wright & Ying-Hwa Hu
Back on our shelves for the festive period, a book which has lost none of its seasonal wonder nor the power of its simple, effective message. Tyler wonders why Christmas Tree angels are always girls and always pink. So, when his family's tree angel gets broken, he sets out to find one that looks, "just like me!" Scouring the shops, there are plentiful angels but none that look anything like him...in fact the shop Father Christmases and even the nativity displays seem a little lacking. But could his friend. Carl, come up with a solution? A charming story which perfectly captures the straightforward and refreshingly questioning minds of children. Illustrations which glow and seem to bounce light across the pages. Age 4-7, Paperback 26pp
