Review quote

Publishers Weekly Kingfisher reissues Claire Llewellyn's Saints and Angels in a smaller gift size featuring gilt-edge pages and a place-marking ribbon. The elegant volume offers accessible, simple text introducing more than 30 saints and angels, as well as illuminating reflections such as "What Is a Saint?" all accompanied by excellent reproductions of fine art. Includes a glossary, calendar of feast days and index. Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information. Carlee Hallman - Children's Literature This lovely little book gives an overview and short biography of thirty saints of the Roman Catholic Church and three angels. Well-known saints, such as St. Patrick, St. Francis, and St. Nicholas, are included among others. In the section called "Great Thinkers and Evangelists" are St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas. The date of the Feast Day of each saint and other facts are set apart at the edge of the page for quick identification. Most pages show a painting or a detail of a painting of the saint reproduced in color. At the end is a calendar of Feast Days, a glossary, an identification of other characters mentioned, and an index. Catholics and Protestants will enjoy this as an easy reference book to Roman Catholic Saints. Gold-edged pages, a blue ribbon bookmark, heavenly blue and gold endpapers, and a see-through book jacket printed with saints and angels make this an attractive gift book for young people and adults. 2006 (orig. 2003), Kingfisher/Houghton Mifflin Company, Ages 12 up.show more
