9781405221757: On Angel Wings

On Angel Wings is a beautifully poignant and atmospheric Christmas story from War Horse author Michael Morpurgo and Roald Dahl's beloved illustrator, Quentin Blake. One cold Christmas night, a shepherd recounts the magical story of how he came to be the first visitor to the newborn Christ child - ahead of the other shepherds, and in complete secret. A deftly wrought re-working of the nativity story from former Children's Laureate and award-winning author of Kensuke's Kingdom and Private Peaceful, Michael Morpurgo. Michael's tale is rich in human detail and Quentin Blake's watercolour illustrations ooze energy in this delightful picture book that will enchant children of 5 and up. On Angel Wings is destined to become a festive family favourite. Michael Morpurgo is the master storyteller of Kensuke's Kingdom, An Eagle in the Snow, Listen to the Moon, Shadow, and An Elephant in the Garden. Michael has written more than a hundred books and won the Whitbread Award, the Smarties Award, the Circle of Gold Award, the Children's Book Award and has been short-listed for the Carnegie Medal four times. Quentin Blake is the world renowned illustrator of Roald Dahl's books including The BFG, Matilda, The Witches, and countless others. He is bringing his unique style to the forthcoming Beatrix Potter story The Tale of Kitty in Boots.

About the Author:

Former Children's Laureate Michael Morpurgo needs no introduction. He is one of the most successful children's authors in the country, loved by children, teachers and parents alike. Michael has written more than a hundred books for children including the global hit War Horse, which was made into a Hollywood film by Steven Spielberg in 2011. Several of his other stories have been adapted for screen and stage, including My Friend Walter, Why the Whales Came and Kensuke's Kingdom. Michael has won the Whitbread Award, the Smarties Award, the Circle of Gold Award, the Children's Book Award and has been short-listed for the Carnegie Medal four times. He started the charity Farms for City Children in 1976 with his wife, Clare, aimed at relieving the "poverty of experience" many young children feel in inner city and urban areas. Michael is also a patron of over a dozen other charities. Living in Devon, listening to Mozart and working with children have provided Michael with the ideas and incentive to write his stories. He spends half his life mucking out sheds with the children, feeding sheep or milking cows; the other half he spends dreaming up and writing stories for children. "For me, the greater part of writing is daydreaming, dreaming the dream of my story until it hatches out - the writing down of it I always find hard. But I love finishing it, then holding the book in my hand and sharing my dream with my readers." Michael received an OBE in December 2006 for his services to literature. Quentin Blake Quentin Blake is known as one of the greatest children's book illustrators of all time. His eye-catching and distinctive style has been featured on books by world-famous authors such as Michael Morpurgo as well as on his own works of fiction. But undoubtedly his most famous partnership was formed with the author Roald Dahl on many of his books for children.

From Publishers Weekly:

Starred Review. The truth is that once we weren't children anymore, we never did believe Grandpa's story, not really—as much as we might have wanted to.... We still loved listening to it, though. Christmas nights would never have been the same without it. Voiced by an indulgent but typically skeptical youth, these opening lines frame a captivating retelling of the Nativity as experienced by the youngest shepherd, whose father and uncles have left him behind to look after the flock as they follow the star to Bethlehem. When the angel Gabriel overhears the boy's lamenting the unfairness of it all, he drops in to make things a little fairer and whisk the boy to the manger and back, lickety-split. Morpurgo's tone blends reverence with wit, a combination matched in Blake's pen-and-ink and watercolor cartoons of heavenly choruses, zooming angels and the boy shepherd holding an infant Jesus (he hopes against hope that [the baby] wouldn't cry). The six-inch-square trim size spells gift book; would-be givers should note the religious nature of the ending. All ages. (Oct.)
