Angela's Christmas Wish

Adapted by Kristin Ostby

In this heartwarming retelling of the sequel to the much-loved, Emmy Award–nominated animated film Angela’s Christmas, Angela sets out to reunite her family in time for Christmas.

Angela has just one wish for Christmas: her father’s return. Her mother has been distracted lately, and Angela and her brothers are convinced it is because she is missing their father as much as they are. Angela comes up with a plan—she will bring their father home from Australia! Angela recruits her brother, Pat, and some new friends to head out into bright, snowy Limerick to go down under. Maybe they can dig their way? Whatever it takes, Angela is determined to make her wish for the family come true.

Based on the characters from Pulitzer Prize–winning author Frank McCourt, this is a tender and funny story about the importance of family and togetherness.
