Peoples are strange! The things they are doing and saying-sometimes they make no sense. Did their brains fall out of their heads? Why don't they be quiet?
In the ancient stone tower of the Casa Rosa, in a tiny village high in the Swiss Alps, life for one aimless angel has been the same since she can remember, until Zola comes along. Zola is a girl with a mission, and when she and the angel collide, figs fly, and the whole village begins to wake up.
This funny, endearing novel by Newbery Medal winner and author of Love that Dog and Hate that Cat is a reminder that magic is found in the most ordinary acts of kindness.
