A day in the "life" of a busy urban angel is chronicled in vibrant images and rhyming verse. Does the b-ball player's shot need a little extra oomph? Who's there to welcome one of the zoo's newborns? Protector, helping hand, jump rope partner-City Angel does her best to add fun, sparkle, and comfort to everyone's day.

This uplifting, joyous tribute to city life and the spirit of community celebrates how small acts of generosity and kindness make life sweet and rewarding, wherever we live.
