One kind gesture will make Angus sparkle.

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 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.

"A heartwarming and sparkly story of friendship. Angus is a lovable and charmingly original character, and his story holds an important message: we all glow a little more brightly when we are able to be ourselves." - Robin Stevenson, award-winning author Pride: Celebrating Diversity & Community

"At once unique, but understandable…Angus' experience will also bring hope to those who may feel like a lone unicorn in a herd of horses." - Resource Links

"Smith's story accomplishes some great things: It introduces readers to new reach-word vocabulary, and Angus' love of sparkle isn't tied directly to sexuality or gender identity, allowing it to reach the heterosexual cis boys who love a little glitz and glimmer." - Kirkus Reviews

"A heartwarming story that emphasizes the individuality and creativity that each child brings to the world and the challenges children face as they try to communicate their uniqueness to others." - CM Magazine

"The tale is one of inclusion, acceptance, diversity, friendship, and kindness, but all are subtly included and take a back seat to the story. This book's sweet message leaves you glowing from the inside out, just like Angus." - Booklist

“Charming illustrations accompany a text that celebrates differences--and friends that embrace all of yours.” - The Horn Book Online
