Behind their cold, stone faces, gargoyles have warm, loving souls — yet most people don’t look deeply enough to notice. Angels can see the good inside them, though, and tonight the angels will sweep down to take their silent, stone friends on a magical journey, hand in hand.

Caldecott Honor artist Dav Pilkey’s lyrical tale of these gentle stone creatures come to life is a reminder that everyone — from the grievers to the dreamers to the believers — is worthy of love.

This is one fantastical little book. Absolutely stunning, both in the rhyming detailed verses and the gorgeous imagery.

The stained glass images jump off the page and come to life, inspiring hope and feelings of peace. This book teaches us the profound lesson that there is more to the world than what meets the eye. In the busy world we live in, this is something we often forgot — to look a little closer, to appreciate the beauty that is the world we live in. Beauty that lies hidden is often the most inspiring as we must search deep to find it.

I loved this book.
