Christopher Moore makes me laugh. Most of his stories are bizarre but so funny. He has a very creative imagination. I like how he has characters that appear in more than one book too. In this story a small town is visited by a Christmas angel who is trying to grant a special wish and can't get it quite right. With so many strange people living in Pine Cove already many of the new occurrences go unnoticed - at first. But eventually people start to notice brain sucking zombies and a fruit bat named Roberto that wears sunglasses. And that's only part of the story!
