Our book this month is The Stupidest Angel: 

A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror, by 

Christopher Moore
Pages: 320
'Twas the night (okay, more like the week) before 

Christmas, and all through the tiny community of Pine Cove, 

California, people are busy buying, wrapping, packing, and 

generally getting into the holiday spirit.  But not everybody is 

feeling the joy. Little Joshua Barker is in desperate need of a

holiday miracle. No, he's not on his deathbed; no, his dog 

hasn't run away from home. But Josh is sure that he saw 

Santa take a shovel to the head, and now the seven-year-old

has only one prayer: Please, Santa, come back from the 

dead.  But hold on! There's an angel waiting in the wings. 

(Wings, get it?) It's none other than the Archangel Raziel 

come to Earth seeking a small child with a wish that needs 

granting. Unfortunately, our angel's not sporting the brightest

halo in the bunch, and before you can say "Kris Kringle," 

he's botched his sacred mission and sent the residents of 

Pine Cove headlong into Christmas chaos, culminating in the 

most hilarious and horrifying holiday party the town has ever 

seen.
