The Stupidest Angel : A Heartwarming Tale of Christmas Terror Paperback

4.5 out of 5 (2 ratings)


Twas the night (okay, more like the week) before Christmas and little Joshua Barker is in desperate need of a Christmas miracle.

Josh is sure he saw Santa take a shovel to the head and now the seven year old has only one prayer: Please Santa, come back from the dead! But coming to Earth, seeking a small child whose wish needs granting, is none other than Archangel Raziel.

Unfortunately, he's not sporting the brightest halo in the bunch and before you can say 'Kris Kringle,' he's botched his sacred mission and sent the residents of Pine Cove headlong into Christmas chaos, culminating in the most hilarious and horrifying holiday party the town has ever seen.

Review by

The Stupidest Angel unites many of the characters from previous novels in the coastal town of Pine Cove for what can only be described as chaos. Moore scores with his off-kilter approach to relationships, his quirky take on American life and his devilish delight in taking modern comedic fiction over the edge. The story is short and punchy, the characters absorbing and goofy, however the actual plot is wafer thin. Smiles abound in The Stupidest Angel, it's a great story of a Christmas gone bad, yet it's not Moore on top form.

Review by

Well written and very funny! Much better than the Lust Lizard of Melancholy Cove, this book makes the Lust Lizard characters come to life. I enjoyed every page.
