On Angel Wings Synopsis

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, Michael's tale is rich in human detail. Quentin Blake's watercolour illustrations ooze energy and atmosphere and perfectly complement this poignant story.
