One evening Mr. and Mrs. Batty find a baby on their doorstep. They name her Angela due to her angelic nature. As she grows up her parents become concerned when her teeth grow in sharp and pointy. Instead of eating her fruits and vegetables she only wanted meat and red items. On the eve of her 7th birthday (which just happens to be Halloween), her birth father shows up causing quite a commotion. This is a fun, short chapter book for 1st-3rd graders.
