Angela is six-years-old and worries for the baby Jesus on the altar of St. Joseph's church in Limerick. December nights are damp and cold, and the church is dark at night. How can the baby Jesus' mother leave him in the manger without even a blanket to cover him? The baby Jesus surely needs Angela's help, even if she is not allowed to go on the altar, especially by herself.

Filled with the characters, incident, and detail that have made Frank McCourt internationally renowned and beloved, Angela’s Christmas is a timeless story of real life—in all of its joy, innocence, and incongruity. A story for all generations to enjoy and cherish.

Full-color illustrations rendered with watercolor, colored pencil, and lithograph pencil.
