A mystical, whimsical romp through the universe and the Heavens for an answer to a question that cannot wait until tomorrow.
Fraser. He's English, eight years old, and has a big question. One night in bed, he calculates distances between things, his house and his uncle's, his uncle's and London, and then on to the Moon, the nearest star, and beyond, until he experiences infinity. He sits up in bed riveted with this question: when you go all the way across the universe, what's on the other side of all the stars?
As if on cue, the next morning, Elouesa, an angel assigned to him, starts to provide Fraser with an answer, but it's an answer that is an experience, and it will take him around an Earth he's never even suspected, out into the galaxy at so intimate a level he'll find his nose pressed against its very edge, and even beyond that, into the wild, mysterious, and very exciting universe.
A host of characters will give Fraser bits of the answer along the way. Such as: Perflummery, the cosmic clown whose bag of marbles contains all the universes. The enigmatic Purplessence who flies him through the silent heart of the Quiddity. Panalon, the blue-starred dolphin and celestial cocktail party bon-vivant. And the Uncle Blaises, the angelic Marx Brothers of Heaven, joking, dancing, quipping, and always quoting from their unique book, The Angel's Guide to the World.
It all comes pummeling back to Earth and "reality" when Fraser goes to school the next day and shows his classmates and teacher what's he learned. And he's lucky to have Uncle Arthur on hand, because he knows where Fraser's been, and with whom.
And the question? Does Fraser get it answered? Indeed. But you'll have to read Fraser's Angel to find out what it is
