HERE THERE BE ANGELS
Illustrated by David Wilgus
Harcourt Brace 1996
ISBN# 0-15-200938-8 Harcourt hardcover
Short stories and poems all written by me, having to do with angels. A few–like “Angelica” had been published before. But a number are brand new to the book, like “Fallen Angel,” a story about an angel whose wings have been burned up when he falls to the earth and how three children build him new ones. Each story and poem begins with a short introduction about how it came to be written.
