Newbery Medal winner Sharon Creech crafts a truly endearing story, one that is imbued with happiness, wonder, and an appreciation for all the little things that make life big. With beautiful, fresh new cover art, this is a gem of a book.
In the winding stone tower of the Casa Rosa, in a quiet little village in the Swiss Alps, lives one very unlikely angelA??one that is still awaiting her instructions from the angel-training center. What happens to an angel who doesn't know her mission? She floats and swishes from high above, watching the crazy things that "peoples" say and do. But when a zany American girl named Zola arrives in town and invades the Casa Rosa, dogs start arfing, figs start flying through the air, lost orphans wander in, and the village becomes anything but quiet. And as Zola and the angel work together to rescue the orphans, they each begin to realize their purpose and learn that there is magic in the most ordinary acts of kindness.

"The narrator of Sharon Creech's latest book is an angel who feels confused, unfinished, and unsure of what she is supposed to be doing. Her uneventful life is upset by the arrival of Zola, a girl who sees the angel and challenges her to "do something" about a group of neglected homeless children. This is a story that is improved by its transition to audio and the serendipity of a talented narrator. Samantha Quan's delivery is smooth, and she carries off Angel's unique mangling of words without sacrificing meaning. It's obvious Quan enjoys channeling this personable character. Listeners will be equally charmed by this unfinished angel who finds her purpose. N.E.M. (c) AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine"
