Synopsis

An Angel Just Like Me by Mary Hoffman

When Tyler and his family are putting up the Christmas decorations, Tyler takes a look at the Christmas-tree angel, and asks, Why are they always pink? Aren't there any black angels? It's a question that no one can answer - not even his friend, Carl. And when Tyler starts combing the shops for a black angel, there are none to be found. But, late on Christmas Day, a surprise delivery from Santa convinces Tyler that there are angels just like him.

Mary Hoffman's Ten Things You Didn't Know About Me:



I didn't change my surname when I got married.

When I was a little girl, I wanted to be a garage mechanic.

My husband is half-Indian. His mother was a Parsee, born in Bangalore.

I am learning Italian and would love to have a house in Italy.

I never wear or own anything blue.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

Alice Horncastle, age 14

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

It’s a community united by a passion for books and promoting the best there is in children’s literature.

Sam Bateman and family

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

Angela East

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.

Katie Lonsdale

I have told all my friends, family & teachers to see for themselves just how great the site is. Without fail, they are hugely impressed.
