A Phoenix Honor Award Book

Young Tommy is seeing Angel Square through new eyes since his best friend's father was beaten up just because he's Jewish. Brian Doyle brings his award-winning blend of humor and wisdom to bear in this mystery that confronts the issue of racial hatred.

Brian Doyle is a four-time winner of the Canadian Library Association's Book of the Year for Children Award. His American honors include being selected for the Horn Book's Fanfare List, the ABA "Pick of the Lists" and the New York Public Library's Best Books for the Teen Age. He has also won the NSK Neustadt Prize, the Phoenix Honor Award, and he has been named a finalist for the Hans Christian Anderson Award. He lives in Chelsea, Quebec.

...working-class grittiness, Irish blarney, Ottawa Valley tall tales and deadpan satire all rolled implausibly into one plausible, irresistible romp. - Michele Landsberg

...written with a stunning simplicity that belies the mischief, humor and poignancy of the tale. Engrossing language and unpredictable twists of plot and emotion will open a world of story and adventure. - Kitchener-Waterloo Record

Doyle has an eye for detail, and his writing style is appealing, with short crisp sentences. - School Library Journal

Doyle's finest book to date... - Ottawa Citizen

It is hard to imagine a novel delivering more to the young reader than Angel Square. It is funny and fast-paced...teeming with sentimentality... - Reader's Guide to the Canadian Novel
