Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Tomie dePaola creates a friendly winged messenger for children's everyday situations and experiences in Angels, Angels Everywhere. Who wouldn't feel comforted having these sweet-natured companions rendered in dePaola's recognizable textured gouaches around? Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
School Library Journal
PreS-In this sweet tribute, dePaola has created a visual story of the important role these celestial beings play in our everyday lives. Beginning with "the wake up angel" and concluding with "the goodnight angel," a host of heavenly friends accompanies a variety of children to school, to the playground, and to a tea party. The children also enjoy visits at home from "the kitchen angel," "the pet angel," "the popcorn angel," and "the babysitting angel." The charming images, deftly drawn in rich pastel shades, convey a sense of happiness and well-being. The smiling, round-faced youngsters cheerfully go about their activities while the hovering angels lend a helping hand. Each picture is framed by a stylized border and includes the name of the appropriate angel at the bottom. A pleasant addition to most collections.-Linda L.
