Full color. 40 pages, ages 4-8 "A Band of Angels tells the story of Grandma Ella, a character who is inspired by Ella Sheppard Moore who was a pianist for the Jubilee Singers of Fisk University. We learn that Grandma Ella was born into slavery and freed at fourteen when the civil war ended. The story details how young Ella worked tirelessly to save money to attend a new school for freed slaves known as . After saving her money and arriving at Fisk, Ella continues working so that she can stay in school and also joins the school chorus. In spite of her personal efforts, she still faced the very real possibility of having to leave school because the school itself was experiencing great financial hardship. While school officials had pretty much given up hope of keeping the school open, the school chorus and Professor White, the choir director, believe that they can help save the school by doing concerts throughout the North. The story then chronicles the experiences of the choir which range from jubilant moments to performing in virtually empty concert halls. A Band of Angels is a book that provides a colorful way to share a proud part of African American heritage with your children. 's illustrations add greater depth to the story and will help children better visualize the events that take place. While this is a work of fiction, the story is based on real people who selflessly used their talents to keep Fisk's doors open.

In addition, readers will see how this brave group of singers would not let racism quiet their talented voices.

Industry reviews: At age 79, Uncle Jed, after a lifetime of obstacles (including segregation and the Great Depression), finally realizes his dream of owning a barbershop. "Convivial descriptions of family life are enhanced by Ransome's spirited oil paintings," said PW. Ages 4-7 Everyone has a favorite relative. For Sarah Jean, it's her Uncle Jed. Every Wednesday night he comes over to her house to give her daddy a haircut and a shave. He's not allowed to cut Sarah Jean's hair, but he can run the clippers along the back of her neck, pretending to cut her hair, and spread lotion on her neck so she smells wonderful. But What makes Uncle Jed extra special is his dream. One day he's going to open his own barbershop with shiny sinks, real barber chairs, and outside, a big tall, red-and-white barber pole. No matter what setbacks he faces--from Sarah Jean's emergency operation to the bank failures of the Great Depression--Uncle Jed hangs on to his dream. Someday he is going to twirl Sarah Jean around in the chair of his very own barbershop!
