On Angel Wings

Publisher: Farshore

A grandfather gathers his family around a warm fire, and as the sparks begin to fly, he tells an important story from his childhood.

Many years before, Grandpa had been tending sheep with his own father and brothers when they were visited by the Angel Gabriel. Although initially stunned, the shepherds were persuaded to visit Bethlehem, where a baby had been born who was the son of God.

As the youngest, Grandpa is left to watch the sheep alone, while his family go to visit this Christ child. However, Gabriel, realising his distress at being left behind, takes him on a journey he will remember for the rest of his life.

Quentin Blake's distinctive illustrations adorn this charming retelling of the nativity, which would be perfect for reading aloud on Christmas Eve.
