Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How the first angel came to be.

There was a time when neither birds nor butterflies nor insects had wings. Then one day, out of nowhere, a little boy appeared. He carried a basketful of wings and traveled far and wide, calling out,

"Come get your wings.

Beautiful wings!

Come get your wings

And fly, fly, fly!"

Soon the sky was filled with sound and color! But the resentful wind hurled the Little Wing Giver's basket into the ocean. Saddened and exhausted, the Little Wing Giver lay down for the night to rest. Birds gathered round him and tried everything they could to rouse him. It was only by chance that a curious magpie found a forgotten pair of wings in the Little Wing Giver's pocket and attached them to his shoulders. With a flap of his new wings, he flew up into the sky. "And it was on seeing the Little Wing Giver flying toward Him through a sunlit cloud that gave God the idea of creating angels.

This magical tale, captured in whimsical full-color illustrations, is sure to enchant readers young and old alike.

About the Author

Jacques Taravant, a French diplomat, originally wrote The Little Wing Giver for his son Jean-Marien on his sixth birthday. The story went unpublished for many years until another son, Bruno transcribed it and Le Monde, a prominent French newspaper, printed it. Jacques Taravant died in 1991.

Peter Sis is a world-renowned author and illustrator. His books Tibet Through The Red Box and Starry Messenger: Gallileo Galilei received the Caldecott Honor award. Mr. Sis, born in Czechoslovakia, now divides his time between Paris and New York City with his wife and their two children
