It's Christmas Eve, and most people are safely tucked up in their beds. But the Christmas angels know who needs their help on this special night, and are ready to fly down to help the lost, lonely and weary.

Small children will love the row of cut-out angel heads which reveal the features of each little angel in turn. This is a beautiful and inspiring picture book which sings of the message of Christmas loving kindness from every page.
'An old-fashioned aura seeps from the gently coloured illustrations of this inspiring tale. It is about angels who are ready to fly down to earth to help the lost, the lonely and the weary. Children love the cut-out angels' heads which reveal the features of each one in turn - and the paper is sufficiently strong to withstand a great deal of handling.'-- Carousel Christmas Guide to Children's Books

'This book is delightfully illustrated with a cut-out of each angel's head on every page ... Children will learn an important lesson from this book and understand that the overriding message of Christmas is to be good to others The rhyming sentences are lovely to read.'-- Creative Steps magazine
Else Wenz-Viƫtor (1882-1973) was probably the best known and most prolific children's book illustrator in 1920s and 1930s Germany. She was born in Sorau, a town now in western Poland, and was brought up by her grandparents in Freiburg. It was from her grandfather that she acquired her love of plants and animals which would become favourite themes in her pictures. In 1903 she illustrated the first of over 150 books. Her work fell out of favour after the Second World War, partly because her style of illustration was popular with the Nazi authorities. The Christmas Angels is the first of her books to be translated into English.
