Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0698119010, Paperback)Sister Angie has organized the celebration of Las Posadas for many years, in which the people of Santa Fe re-enact Mary and Joseph's search for shelter on the night Jesus was born. This year's performance promises to be very special. Sister Angie's niece Lupe and Lupe's husband, Roberto, are to play the parts of Mary and Joseph. But on the night of the celebration, a snowstorm hits and Lupe and Roberto's car breaks down on their way into town. And to make matters worse, Sister Angie is home sick with the flu. It seems that only a miracle will be able to save Las Posadas.
"Another beautiful offering from dePaola . . . The artist's distinctive acrylic artwork illuminates the story and radiates its reverence and warmth."(School Library Journal, starred review)
