Synopsis: During the hard times of 1932, a poor shoe shine man gives a child his cap, gloves, and an angel made from a spool, then receives a wonderful gift in return.

From Booklist: Ages 5-9. It is 1932, and many people don't have enough money for food, much less Christmas gifts. Larry, on the bottom rung of society's ladder, is a hobo known as the "Shine Man" because he can make the dingiest shoes shine like new. Three days before Christmas, he sets out his shoeshine gear in the harsh, wintry weather with nothing to protect him from the cold but a cap and the old socks he uses as gloves. In his pocket he keeps a wooden angel made out of a spool and a bit of yarn. No one stops for a shoeshine, but a young boy befriends Larry. The boy has nothing to offer; in fact, it is Larry who gives the child his cap, his "gloves," and the angel. On Christmas Eve the boy reveals himself as the Christ child, and he takes Larry soaring through the sky, where, like the stars, they shine. This is a handsome book with evocative paintings that capture the despair of hard times as well as the human impulse toward generosity and hope. The sentimental quality of both story and art may appeal more to adults than children, but listeners who respond to fables will find the story touching. Ilene Cooper
