Each of these stories highlights a key moment in the Old or New Testament, from Creation to the Resurrection and on to Revelation, where the veil between heaven and earth is pulled aside, and the wonder of God shines through. The wonderfully warm illustrations perfectly capture the angels’ glowing grace and enhance the beauty of the stories, making a book that will be treasured by children, parents, and teachers years to come.

MARY JOSLIN draws her inspiration from the world's heritage of ancient stories. Her titles for Lion include The Goodbye Boat, Saint Nicholas, Our Father and The Tale of the Heaven Tree.From Booklist:
Angels are a perennially favorite topic, and this slim book does a nice job of mixing several Bible stories with short poems and snippets of verse about them. Drawing from the Old and New Testaments, Joslin includes tales about Adam and Eve, Jacob (though not about his wrestling with the angel), and Daniel. Of course, she also includes stories of the Annunciation, the birth of Jesus, the discovery of the empty tomb, and, rather surprisingly, several elements from Revelations. There are traditional Irish poems, as well as some from the writings of saints. The easy tellings are matched by light, airy artwork, often full-page, which presents angels that are light-years away from medieval portraits of angelic figures in heavy dress. Short source notes add to the book’s usefulness. Grades K-3. --Ilene Cooper
