 Angus All Aglow, a Picture Book, Book Launch with Illustrator Alice Carter

Angus loves sparkly things, so much so that he can hear them. To Angus, shiny objects not only look beautiful; they also crackle, buzz and go whiz-bang-POP! His unique ability is lost, however, when Angus wears his grandma's beaded necklace to school, and his classmates tease him for his atypical choice. Saddened by their laughter, Angus stops hearing the sparkle.

A gentle story of acceptance, generosity and friendship, Angus All Aglow (for Ages 3-5 ) reminds us that it only takes one kind gesture to restore your sparkle, and returning the kindness can make you glow from the inside out.
