Angel's Mother's Wedding

Judy Delton, Author Houghton Mifflin Harcourt (HMH) $16 (176p) ISBN 978-0-395-44470-2
A fourth perky and good-humored book about Angel O'Leary, her small brother Rags and their mother. Mrs. O'Leary has announced her forthcoming marriage to Rudy, a clown by trade, who was introduced in a previous book. Egged on by bits of information provided by her girlfriend, Angel begins to worry that her mother isn't planning the wedding very well, if at all. She worries about invitations, flowers, the cake, the ring, the minister and her mother's dress. Reassured at last that everything is under control, Angel decides to try to relax. The wedding itself, with Rags misunderstanding his role of ring bearer (he thinks he's ring bear and acts accordingly) is a triumph of funny writing. Using topical and ordinary events, Delton probes the genuine emotions of her characters with a light, deft touch. Ages 8-11. (October)
